Review by: Jason James
Yes it is a spoof film and for the most part I can't stand them. There are a few exceptions but this one is not one of them. You follow the bumbling governement agent as he is tasked with uncovering that the President (look alike of Clinton) has been kidnapped and replaced with a clone. From there let the spoof begin. I must say that I am a pretty big fan of scifi films, books, and other media but many of the references in this movie were lost. There are some pretty obvious ones such as 2001 A Space Odyssey, kind of can see that one comeing considering the title of this movie. But for the most part I didn't follow many of the references. Overall I am not that big of a fan of spoof movies to begin with so it would have to be pretty special for me to like it. Even with that this is still not even that good of a spoof movie making it even harder to watch.
