I had very high expectations of this film going into it. Charlie Kaufman has for a long time been a favorite screenwriter of mine, and I wanted to see this as the proof to myself that screenwriters can successfully direct their own work. This film did everything but prove that to me. This film has shown me the importance of having a filter there to take out the things that just don't work on screen. For me there was too…
It all depends how you want to view this film. If you acknowledge the fact that they knew they were making a cheap low budget spoof sci fi than you have to give it to them for how comically genius this film is. However if you want to look at it thinking they were serious than you would hate this movie and think it's a terrible movie. However I can get sarcasm so 4 stars.
