A futuristic slapstick comedy that, while disjointed and unfulfilling plot-wise, is nonetheless pleasing for its great physical humour.
I for one am glad Allen did not continue to make his "earlier, funnier films" as fans hurled at him in Stardust Memories.
A disjointed plot is definitely true but the theatrics and Chaplinesque slapstick qualities make it worth a watch. Maybe once is enough, though.
Worth seeing for his hilarious robot walk alone.
