One of those films that will go down in history as being notoriously bad, hated, derided and a shocking investment for a studio.

As there's no accounting for taste, however, it must have some fans out there (or at least people who didn't hate it so much), and I have to say I'm one of them.

Simply, it stacks up against any other big budget Hollywood comedy, action or sci-fi film adequately, and to expect more is to be eternally fooled by the movie marketing ethos.

Pluto Nash (Murphy) is an ex con who runs the hottest nightclub on the moon. Aided by his robot bodyguard (Quaid) and struggling singer/new employee (Dawson), he has to fight off the criminal cartel trying to take over his place.

The special effects, sets, script, performances and action are as good as can be expected, the story engages you, it's attracted a pretty stellar cast for such a supposedly bad product, and it's hard to see it's so hated.
