Aliens kidnap the president of the US and replace him with a clone; it’s up to Leslie Nielsen to go up on the planet. Sadly, 2001: A Space Travesty is as weak as the wit in its title. A cheap and dumb-witted spoof comedy that lacks any type of creativity and is totally forgettable – and forgotten. – 1/5
