A disgraced scientist puts "the old team" back together in a race against time to create something that can penetrate the alien's impenetrable armor on their spaceships.

Worst Special Effect
He Pressed the Stock Footage Button
A toy cannon jerks around and fires at the spaceship. The new putative ruler of earth is offended by this. "If they want violence, then I'll give it to them," he says. He presses, the big red button, and ... POW! BOOM! ZAP!
A series of explosions erupts.
A series of suspiciously stock-footage-appearing explosions. In black-and-white.

Smithee Award Winner! "Whoops!"
The film's opening credits (dig that synth music ... it's the only music they score the film with, so if you watch the whole movie, you'll hear plenty more of it) roll. And when it says "ALSO APPEARING (IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)" -- the names aren't. Not by last name. Maybe by first name? Nope. Middle name? Nickname? Secret Society name?

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Picture
Marvin the Paranoid Android They Ain't
They go to a junkyard, to recruit a couple of robots. Robots that need to be rescued from their (nauseatingly cutesy) suicide pact. Note how it's easy to tell Tilt from Tilly because she's got the huge eyelashes.
