Evolution (2001)

Some big-budget idiocy in Evolution, which started life as a thriller but ends up as a lazy Ivan Reitman comedy, carrying on the vogue for fart jokes as a guaranteed way of making morons laugh.

It’s a shame as there are some clever ideas, very good effects, and a few good jokes, and Duchovny builds on his nice quiet line of humour along sidekick Orlando Jones. Sadly we also get Julianne Moore doing an impression of Norman Wisdom; falling over has never looked less funny.

Make sure you get the American disk: it has a commentary, deleted scenes and multiple featurettes; the region 2 DVD is missing these and only has some HBO docs.

Mild Peril Rating: ★★½☆☆
