The film is loaded with throwaway literacy and broad slapstick, and while it fumbles the end, the parade of verbal and visual amusement is pleasant as long as it lasts.

Plenty of one-liners, and it has the best banana-skin joke in film history.

Sleeper is the closest Allen has come to classic slapstick-and-chase comedy, and he's good at it.

It may have been an arduous shoot ... but the results continue to entertain even po-faced sci-fi fans. It's better than bloody Spaceballs.
