Naked Space

I came across this low-budget sci-fi spoof movie with Leslie Nielsen called Naked Space (aka The Creature Wasn’t Nice) made in 1981 — seven years before the first Naked Gun movie came out.  I was kind of surprised to find this movie even existed.

The movie is as lame as you’d expect from a low budget, early 80s movie, but it has some really clever, laugh-out-loud lines every once in a while.  One of the best parts of the movie was when the crew captured the alien creature which was terrorizing the ship and hooked it up to their computer to translate what it was trying to communicate to them.

Here’s the full movie:

Dr. Stark: “A living, breathing organism…and I discovered it!  They’ll have to call it…the Stark organism.”
Annie McHugh: “Just a moment, doctor.  Um, it was John who did discover the organism.  I think we should give credit where credit is due.”
Dr. Stark: “Credit?!  What do you want to call it?  The John organism?  It’s mine!”

Dr. Stark: “If you’ll excuse me, I have work to do.”
Annie McHugh: “Oh, doctor, aren’t you going to see the movie with us? You know, it really might relax you.”
Dr. Stark: “I’m perfectly relaxed. Science relaxes me.”
John: “Won’t you care for some pie? Before you–”
Dr. Stark: “Science is my pie.”

Capt. Jamieson: “Well, I’m going to go and see if it’s still there.”
Dr. Stark: “Good idea.”
Capt. Jamieson: “What? No. No, you’re supposed to say ‘don’t go’.”

(alien is making wailing sounds)
Dr. Stark: “Shhh! It’s almost as if it were trying to talk to us.”
Annie McHugh: “You know, it almost sounds musical.”
Rodzinski: “Yeah? Well, if that’s music then I’m a horse’s ass.”
Capt. Jamieson: “Then it must be music.”
