Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

A baffling plot, cheap special effects, the repetitious chase scenes, and overall silliness make this movie almost unwatchable for adults. Much of the humor in this sub-amateur production is dependent upon a lisping, mugging, buffoon and his strongman partner who is seen only from the neck down. Though kids might find the visual jokes and pratfalls hilarious, the film sets the quality bar at a very low level.

Fans of Craig Ferguson may be drawn to this film by word-of-mouth; the late night TV host's campy performance as Dr. Wagner, the megalomaniac who wants to rule the world, is so over-the-top it could become a career landmark.
