Has what must be the biggest budget of Stuart Gordon's career. The story isn't very interesting, and it's never as funny as it needs to be, but the deliberatly ridiculous and garish sets and costumes are a hoot, especially the centripetal motion diner. The 90s computer animation is abysmal.
Pushes the boundaries of PG-13 filmmaking, especially in an extremely Gordon-esque scene where a bizarre near-sexual-assualt is played for laughs. I know that's a hard sell, but it's a lot less offensive than the one in Reanimator, since the joke is at the man's expense. He's part machine and has a mechanical penis that has to be started up with a pull cord, like a lawnmower, that he is having difficulty with, in probably the most unique "I swear this never happens" type joke I've ever seen.
