Mutants in Paradise (1984)

How bad is it? Pretty awful. Dreadful, in fact.
Should you see it? No.

The director of this film obviously is a fan of John Waters, but other than having Edith Massey in a small role and zero budget, this has no other point of comparison. It's a version of "The Six Million Dollar Man," except that in this case, the medical enhancements only cause problems, some personal, some involving Russians who kidnap his boss's daughter in order to trap him. It's played for laughs, but maybe one in 20 work - and to be fair, those that work are really quite funny - and it seems to have been haphazardly and quickly thrown together.
