I bought this DVD primarily due to Leslie Nielson and wished that I hadn't. Right from the start from the poor send up of Dirty Harry sending his car through the store window to the end this is not funny.
This ground is not new having already been covered by the excellent Spaceballs, but this pales in comparison.
Some of the tricks of Spaceballs are apparent as there are representatives of different movie life-forms among the aliens.
Try as I might I cannot find anything positive to say about this movie. Leslie Nielson does not need the damage to his reputation.
On the front cover the blurb says 'the most outer spaced-out comedy ever'. Clearly the author of that remark is spaced out on something and is not an astronaut.
The only good thing about this movie is that it leads one to revisit Nielson's past glories.
Leslie Nielsen stars in this, but he is hampered by both bad writing and an awful supporting cast. Both throw his comic timing off, which makes it impossible for him to showcase his talents. Everything in this is lame, from the plot to the acting to the special effects. Scenes that are supposed to be funny are really more stupid.
It's sad that Leslie Nielsen has been pushed into doing garbage like this. He'd be much better served in a film that can better use his comic talents.

The first part was promising, but the rest became very messy with a confusing plot and poor direction. The DVD release is not widescreen, for some unfathomable reason. Read morePublished on March 14 2002
Leslie Nielsen is usually a very funny comedic actor, but "2001: A Space Travesty" is exactly what its name says: a travesty of acting, writing and directing.Published on March 8 2002
