A loopy 2001 satire, Dark Star may not be the most consistent sci-fi comedy, but its portrayal of human eccentricity is a welcome addition to the genre.

By introducing human eccentricities into the cold structure of SF, Carpenter creates a vision of the technological future that is both disillusioned and oddly affirmative in its insistence on the unscientific survival of emotional frailty.
The dim comedy consists of sophomoric notations and mistimed one-liners.
There are some funny routines here, though Mr. Carpenter doesn't seem to have cared much about integrating or sustaining them.
A berserk combination of space opera, intelligent bombs, and beach balls from other worlds.
An enjoyable lightweight outer-space hippie spoof.
... a grungy, darkly humorous declaration that, in the end, boredom and human slovenliness trumps technology and high ideals.
It wouldn't be a cult classic if everybody liked it, now would it?
John Carpenter's guerilla undermining of the pomposity of space odysseys
Hats off nonetheless to young whippersnapper John Carpenter, whose studenty tale of space tedium, aliens and molasses-black humour remains approximately a thousand times better than the director's last 15 years.
Uneven but enjoyable.
An intermittently hilarious satire on 2001.
I suppose it would have been entertaining for its time (despite Star Wars) and I did find it a slow but thoughtful and interesting piece. I can see the similarities between this and 2001 which is not a bad thing. It was well thought out and had some great comedy moments (intended or not). A good watch but not something you could view again and again.
Probably the best space satire featuring a crazed beach ball. Loved the ending.
Carpenter's first movie is a dud! It's supposed to be a spoof of 2001, but it's even more boring, as the jokes are obvious and unfunny. I hated this movie, and I've been trying to sell my copy ever since!
