My Thoughts:

This, while it is a fun film, is far from their best work. The plot is good even if it is a little on the hectic side. And some of the skits seen in this one I have seen in other movies of theirs. And hey we have some nice looking "native" dancing girls! So over all I would say it is still worth the time put in to watch it. Just don't go in expecting too much.

My Thoughts:
An okay movie with some nice ideas, but overall rather boring. I think this movie was made before Kristin Kreuk was cast in Smallville. Strange that she seems to be cast in roles which typically doesn't fit her look. Lana Lang was supposed to be a redhead. I didn't mind the change though. And Snow White is supposed to have very white skin. They had to use a lot of make-up here to achieve this effect. Her hair is the perfect fit for the role though.
Fun was the casting of Vincent Schiavelli as one of the dwarfs. He sticks out like a sore thumb, which of course was the joke.

Tom's Random Reviews, a review by Tom

Title: Andy Richter Controls the Universe: The Complete Series
Year: 2002
Rating: NR
Length: 417 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital Stereo

Andy Richter
Paget Brewster
Irene Molloy
Jonathan Slavin
James Patrick Stuart

The rules of comedy are about to be broken in Andy Richter Controls The Universe, one of the funniest sitcoms in TV history. A bored writer of instruction manuals, Andy spends his office hours daydreaming about what his life could, should and ought to be. Starring in his outlandish fantasies are his unlucky-in-love boss Jessica (Paget Brewster), best buddy Keith (James Patrick Stuart), quirky pal Byron (Jonathan Slavin) and Andy's secret object of desire, Wendy the receptionist (Irene Molloy). Featuring the Emmy®-nominated series' 14 episode run – plus 5 that were never shown on network TV – this it cutting edge lunacy at its irreverent best, a mirth-quaking 10 on the Richter scale!

Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:
When Andy Richter left the Late Night Show with Conan O'Brien, he started this great (but sadly short-lived) comedy series. It has a great cast. I especially liked Jonathan Slavin as Andy's new collegue Byron. Paget Brewster is really beautiful in this series. The main gag in this series is, that you always see something really strange happening, which turns out to be Andy's imagination, followed by his "...this is what really happened".
