''The Ice Pirates'' is a 1984 comedy/science-fiction film. It was directed by Stewart Raffill (of Wilderness Family fame), who co-wrote the screenplay with ''Film/{{Krull}}'' author Stanford Sherman. The movie stars Robert Urich and Mary Crosby. Other notable featured actors are Creator/AnjelicaHuston, Creator/RonPerlman, [[Series/{{Manimal}} Michael D. Roberts]], Bruce Vilanch, JohnCarradine and football great [[Film/TheGoonies John Matuszak]]. It is considered to be a CultClassic by many science fiction and B-movie fans because the movie doesn't really take itself seriously and everybody involved seems to have a great time hamming it up.

* {{The Eighties}}: A trippy soundtrack filled with keyboard music and echoing drums? Check. Laughably dated CGI laser beams? Check. Glittering dresses and leotards that would make the creators of {{Labyrinth}} jealous? Check-a-roo!

* YouFailPhysicsForever: The classic of ill-researched SF films--it would be difficult indeed to actually monopolize all the water in the galaxy as the expository crawl claims the Templars have done.

** Not to mention the room that appears to be sort of projection slash makeout room. The scene shows the character getting drenched by a rainstorm. In a galaxy with a water problem. To be fair, the obvious posing to make the characters look like a cheesy romance novel cover probably was the point of the scene.
