It can be perceived as a pleasant antidote to the Hollywood mainstream comedy.

December 8, 2002
This musical epic is unlike anything I (or anyone I know) have ever laid eyes on.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 24, 2002
A sui generis, love-it-or-hate-it exercise in homegrown American surrealism.
June 20, 2002
Something somewhere between Six-String Samurai and Dead Man (but a science-fiction musical).
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
March 7, 2002
Every once in a blue moon some inexplicable force of cinema pushes all sanity and sense of aesthetics aside and leaves me defenselessly embracing a movie that has no apparent redeeming factor other than its cheesy eccentricity.

Accepting its darkness, warmth and gentle ridiculousness, you'll find yourself heartened, though you won't be exactly sure why.
January 4, 2002
A movie so goofy and affable about its willful, second-rate cheesiness that anger becomes a waste of time. You either go along with it or you don't go at all.

McAbee deserves much credit for not letting the obvious financial limitations constrain his imagination.

November 2, 2001

November 2, 2001
An unforgettable, irresistible stylistic hybrid that's part space opera, part western, part noir thriller and all hyperintelligent comedy.
November 1, 2001
Just let the expressionistic, oddly charming images wash over you and enjoy the rush of a zero-budget indie that somehow fuses Buck Rogers and the theater of the absurd.

Obviously not for all tastes -- but it's quite unlike anything else out there at the moment.
October 9, 2001
A lovely little wedge of garage-band silliness.
September 14, 2001
Wittily juvenile with clever, catchy songs to match.
