Suburban Commando

Some funny gags enliven the stupid sci-fi spoof Suburban Commando. Lame vehicle for wrestler Hulk Hogan is a bad 'high-concept' effort marrying two elements. Hogan is an intergalactic warrior who travels to earth for some r&r, instantly becoming a fish out of water boarding at suburbanites Christopher Lloyd and Shelley Duvall's house. Lloyd is a Casper Milquetoast architect who briefly becomes the title character by donning Hogan's muscle-enhancing power suit.

Special effects are okay in copying and spoofing the Star Wars films, with good stunts as Hogan battles two intergalactic bounty hunters sent to kill him. His final battle with his evil nemesis (William Ball) is an underwhelming anticlimax. Casting of top talent Lloyd and Duvall was a good idea, but both are underutilized.
