The 25 Worst B-Movies From Outer Space

12. 2001: A Space Travesty (2000)

Director: Allan A. Goldstein
Stars: Leslie Nielsen, Ophelie Winter, Peter Egan, Ezio Greggio, Alexandra Kamp

Get it? It's meant to spoof Stanley Kubrick's brilliant 2001: A Space Odyssey. That's funny, right?

Chances are, you're not laughing, nor will you at any point during 2001: A Space Travesty, a real low point for star Leslie Nielsen, who lazily went back to the old Naked Gun/Airplane drawing board for this science fiction send-up. The late Nielsen obviously didn't give a damn about anything other than his paycheck—why else would he willingly play a character named Richard Dix? Or, for that matter, allow a female co-star to portray "Cassandra Menage"? Money talks, people.
