Mission to Mars (Movies)

After finding both mainstream and critical success with Scarface, Carlito's Way, and Mission: Impossible, Brian De Palma though it would be a great idea to direct a sci-fi actioner called Mission to Mars — it had the earmarks of a 'blockbuster smash' all over it. However, even an all-star cast couldn't save the disaster of a plot and those globule-like Martians from flaming out before reentry; the flick even earned De Palma a Razzie for Worst Director. Piz and Veronica, on the other hand, shot into the spotlight with their film debut. Better quality than that Hilton girl's video, and certainly more tasteful than Pam and Tommy Lee's, "Emission to Mars" earned the Dick Casablancas thumbs up. Given the choice, we'd take the Razzie.
