Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Years after a weapon called the Y-Bomb has wiped out the world's male population, scientist Julie Bowen genetically engineers a (supposedly) violence-free man - but he's not exactly welcome in a land run by man-hating women. This made-for-TV effort has occasional fun with its outlandish premise, but by and large it's still far too glum for its own good. Most disappointingly, the movie fails to illustrate how an all-female population might change society, an idea that could have been interesting in the hands of more gifted film-makers.
