This film follows the same premise of the cable TV series it's based on: a man named Mike Nelson (Michael J. Nelson), along with two witty robots, is held captive in outer space by mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester (Trace Beaulieu). As an experiment, Forrester subjects them to a barrage of horrible, "cheesy movies." Nelson and the bots proceed to make fun and crack wise at virtually everything that happens in the film, from the opening to closing credits. In this big-screen version, the film lampooned by the gang is 1955's This Island Earth, a campy, no-budget film about earthlings who are kidnapped by aliens. But will Mike and his metallic buddies ever find a way to escape from the demented Forrester?
