To each his own, I suppose. Michelle and I watched this some years ago, and we each thought it was one of the very worst, un-funniest, unpleasant movies we had ever had the misfortune of watching. It tried so hard to be over-the-top in cynical, gruesome humor, but instead it was mostly just unwatchable. The only reason we finished it was that it had come highly recommended by a couple of people, so we (or I) kept on saying, "It _must_ get better than this." Unfortunately, it did not. Perhaps worst of all was not the grotesqueness of the "humor", but its mind-numbing predictability. (NOTE: SPOILER ALERT) The funniest part of the whole movie, which merited a slight half-smile from me and an eye-roll from Michelle, was the usage of Slim Whitman music to explode the Martians' heads at the end of the movie. On the whole, pretty much a waste of my time from beginning to end. In contrast, I found _Death Becomes Her_ to be a very funny show, though the humor was so dark and gruesome that I did not think the humor was worth the experience. I wouldn't recommend the movie, but at least it was funny.
