  2. Howdy Film Fanatics,

    This movie is kind of a forgotten gem.

    Plot line – not bad at all.

    Acting – pretty good.

    General atmosphere – slick, especially where the original husbands
    are hanging on the wall of the space ship.
    Yes, I am easy to please.

    See you at the movies,



    If a drowning victim is from outer space, be careful when giving oxygen.
