    Good spirits are worth something, and the movie has them, as well as scattershot chuckles.

    Allen Daviau's cinematography is so striking that the movie would probably play better with the sound off.

    The movie is something of a white elephant itself, a luxuriant, lumbering behemoth. It is pleasant, occasionally amusing - and often dull.

    It is a measure of the movie's lack of inspiration that William Shatner is the funniest thing in it.

    Cronenberg can create alternative worlds like few other filmmakers, and that's a real achievement. If he learns to make us care about them, he'll really have something. [23 April 1999, Life, p.8E]

    Not since Demi Moore lived happily ever after in "The Scarlet Letter" has a filmmaker felt so free to fudge a famous plot.

    A cynical sex comedy that manages to be infantile and jaded at the same time.

    The actors take a back seat to computer-generated demonic images and apocalyptic special effects.

    No disinfectant could clean up this misbegotten, Americanized remake of "Les Visiteurs."

    The scariest thing about this appalling and seemingly endless movie is that you paid for your ticket and now have to sit through it.

    Friedberg, who previously made Nielsen's golfing video and rental car commercials, knows only the low road -- and gets lost anyway. [24 May 1996, Pg.04.D]

    The script, based on a novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, is deeply dumb, depressingly derivative (ripping off "Planet of the Apes" the most) and just plain nonsense.

    Shot by a special-effects superstar making his first stab at directing, Mark Dippe, the result is dizzying in its unreality, and the visual tricks are impressive. [01Aug1997 Pg.02.D]

    Would not even make a decent five-minute TV sketch. At any length, it smells.

    The movie was postponed from 1998 and shielded from critics. (They were ot allowed to see the movie before the opening, usually a bid sign.) [15 January 1999, Life, p.8E]
