''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, Michael D. Roberts, Bruce Vilanch, JohnCarradine and football great 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.

* WhateverHappenedToTheMouse: When they made it through the time warp, everything reverted back to the point when they entered it, which includes the space herpe being caught. This means that it's still loose on the ship as the movie ends.

* {{Slap Slap Kiss}} Jason and Princess Karina. Not only do they spend much of the movie insulting one another, but they're also locked in a battle of wits, trying to threaten, capture, enslave, or embarrass one another.

** The Pirate's Den, a bar filled with space thugs and aliens, is a huge nod to the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in ''Star Wars''. With that in mind, Maida's duel with the bounty hunter who she cooly decapitates is probably a nod to Han Solo killing Greedo.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The film's main premise was severely undermined by the realization that water is one of the most common substances in the entire universe, being found even on Mercury.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The film's main premise was severely undermined by the realization that water is one of the most common substances in the entire universe, being found even on Mercury. (Not to mention the room that appears to be sort of projection-slash-makeout room. The scene shows the characters getting drenched by an artificial rainstorm. To be fair, the obvious posing to make the characters look like a cheesy romance novel cover probably was the point of the scene.)
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Even given the premise of water being rare, it's still the classic of ill-researched science fiction films -- it would be difficult indeed to actually monopolize all the water in the galaxy, as the expository crawl claims the Templars have done.



* 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.
** Taken to new levels when it's shown that one of the pirate hideouts orbits a ringed gas giant (a stock NASA animation of Saturn). You want ice? Go outside and grab a chunk! In fact, water is one of the most common substances ''in the universe''. There's even ice on ''Mercury''.

*** And perhaps a little of "You know what really turns me on? Burning ''lots of money''."
