Space Truckers

"This rental should come with a bong. (You'd leave a deposit!)"
2 stars

Only wacko director Stuart Gordon of genre classics such as From Beyond, Dolls, Re-Animator and Castle Freak would attempt such a campy sci-fi adventure comedy and then go ahead and cast Dennis Hopper and GEORGE WENDT! (That was all one sentence.)

Smokey and the Bandit meets Lost in Space.

Convoy meets Battle Beyond the Stars.

Oooh..Honky Tonk Freeway meets Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (in 3-D!)

Yeah, so there's these truck-like spaceships, so of course we have space truckers. What a clever title this movie has. So after two bong hits, you realize Dennis Hopper is transportating square pigs across the galaxy. You're not dreaming. Then George Wendt shows up, only he's supposed to be a VILLAIN. By now you should be hungry, so grab the Peanut M&M's. Debi (Skinny-Ass Noo Yawka) Mazar is about to strip down to a tinsel bikini and do the instellar hoo-haa with a robot guy who has to jump-start his wee-wee.

By now, if you can see through all the smoke, there's these ultra-deadly robot killers that Hopper is accidentally bringing to earth. So now the crew of Drunk Hopper, the half-nude stick figure and the bad guy from Blade have to save the world. I was still hungry.

You see where all this is headed, right? You watch these made for cable sci-fi comedies and get wasted and laugh your head off, but then when it comes time to write the review, you only remember a few scenes. Simply put, sci-fi comedy usually isn't pretty, and Space Truckers is certainly no exception.

Obviously made to be corny and silly, but perhaps it succeeds a little too well. The science isn't fictiony enough and the comedy ain't all that funny, so there. Make sure you get some Visine on your way back from the video store.
