An appropriately camp sensibility to remaking the cult classic science fiction film doesn't save this expensive misfire. The opening scene shows promise with a dark edge and acerbic wit. But that fizzles quickly in favor of overblown comic set pieces and sloppy political commentary. To Frank Oz's credit, the production design does make the town of Stepford seem so perfect that it is almost alien and eerie.
