    1984 meets Monty Python meets Wallace and Gromit. Excellent pacing, great balance between comedy and drama. As far as dystopian films go, this is quite uplifting. 3 years 5 months ago

    Incredible, hilarious, hopeful, and depressing Distopian film. It's been one of my favorites for years. The zany sense of humor is superb. Sadly, I think this film is even more apt now than it was in 1985. We haven't improved our society and culture at all. 4 years 10 months ago

    I found the first hour really boring, which detracted a lot from the movie's general enjoyment. Also, Sam's only defining characteristic is his love for Jill, I felt he was annoying and shallow. However, I tough the last 30 min were really awesome, I only wish there was more DeNiro in it.
