A sweet, funny anarchic pastiche that should find broad based popularity.

Better-than-average SNL spin-off, and unfortunately the best thing Aykroyd's done sice Ghostbusters.

A respectably funny -- but small -- effort, a reunion party best watched in your living room, while you consume mass quantities of pizza with extra molten lactate extract of hooved mammals.
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
January 1, 2000
A thoroughly updated and nicely fleshed-out comedy that never quite makes you loose a molar laughing, but instead keeps solid little gags flowing throughout.

A new spin on the original skit with some fresh stars like Sinbad and McKean plus a generous special effects budget fill in the gaps when the movie flags.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

It ultimately fails because it lacks sufficient satire or an edge.

So-so '90s movie based on '70s SNL sketch has edgy humor.

Can you inflate a gimmick-driven comedy skit into a full-fledged feature film? Up to a point.

Whether on Earth or in space, the jokes are either flat or hopelessly crude.

Its transition to the big screen suggests an idea that was plotted on the back of a beer mat when the creators were too pickled to stand up straight. One wishes they had passed out before they were so inspired.
