A guy named Neo, a robot uprising, and humanity enslaved to power to a computer mainframe-- sound familiar? Well, you're thirteen years too early. This movie features all of the above, plus an evil woman who just had her wisdom teeth pulled, and a gigantic avocado. Lobster-headed robots, a kleptomaniac C3PO knockoff, and a huge Nuge round out the cast. Oh, and sock puppets with teeth. While we're at it, there are also a couple women with ridiculously impractical outfits, and just enough carelessness in location scouting to make you think that maybe, just maybe, our intrepid voyageurs are trekking through modern day Central Park. And Long Island City. Not some wasteland in the distant future.|
as the dry-socketed villainess Valaria gradually turns into a sleazy Marlene Dietrich.
to the huge Nuge's journey of personal discovery, transforming from mindless sex toy to bomb-squad lieutenant.
as Neo's robot buddy slips farther and farther into C3PO mimicry until he suffers a breakdown that was stolen lock, stock and barrel from
The Empire Strikes Back.
as robots who look like crustaceans with claws sharpened into swords fight with Neo and the huge Nuge.
at the new uses found for dark room timers and abandoned factory equipment.
Will the huge Nuge run out of bronzer? Will Neo survive to become Keanu Reeves? Will the Dark One be defeated? Will Deeja's father make an excellent guacamole?
