Also, the actor playing Paul. Erk. Or, to be fair, maybe it was his script. All those times when he has to mutter to himself doing his best Basil Exposition really didn't help. So it had real acting/script problems, which are a lot less forgivable than the dodgy special effects.
The eyebrows are brilliant though. Denis Healey INNNNNN SPAAAAAAAAACE!!!!!
