The Mandella Effect is in effect
22 July 2019 | by asimov72455See all my reviews

I remember viewing this movie. I was very young then and did not have the impeccable good taste that I have now. Back then, this movie was cute, even funny in parts. But now that I'm old and my memory doesn't always jibe with the facts, I have a different recollection as to who starred in this movie. I could have SWORN Dave Thomas played the lead. Following the success of SCTV he was a recognizable and hot property. I recall in his role as the android, his mugging for the camera. It was funny. The other scene I though was funny was when assassin Chuck Conners was selecting a weapon to use to "kill" the android. He picked up the rifle he had used in The Rifleman, considered it for a moment, and decided against it. Were there two versions of this movie? Why is my vivid memory of it so different from the IMDB account of it? It's Mandella, I tell you.
