This terrible Will Ferrell sci-fi comedy can't decide whether to aim for small children or teenagers, and ends up alienating them both.

The perfunctory storyline and ropey special effects aren't fit for anyone over eight, and yet the film makes a point of dismaying younger viewers (or, more accurately, younger viewers' parents) by sticking in some swearing, a protracted drugs trip sequence, and an ape-man who keeps groping Anna Friel's chest. The phrase "lost the plot" springs to mind.
