YMMV / Spaced Invaders

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Short, green, hyperactive, loudmouthed aliens try to take over Earth, aided by a useless robot. Why does that sound so familiar?
    • One of the Martians even sounds like Zim.
  • Narm: By the end of the movie, the Enforcer Drone's menacing qualities and sinister plan to kill the Martians once they reach space comes across as ridiculous in light of the fact that his idiot charges have put him through hell just to do his job. Some of the more serious parts of the movie also come across as this due to the cartoonish way the Martians react to things.
  • Narm Charm
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The opening credits theme is a (pretty subpar) riff on Mars: The Bringer of War. Which is strange, as The Planets are public domain.
  • What Might Have Been: The role of Wrenchmuller was originally offered to DeForest Kelley of Star Trek fame which would have made his having a dog named Jim (as in Kirk) amusing at least.
