I was hoping someone could help me find the name of a movie that was released sometime between through the '80s and '90s.

I remember it starting out with a smaller space ship docking to a larger one; the captain of the smaller vessel possibly mentions running robots (maybe sex androids.) I remember him (the captain of the smaller ship) entering a bar not too long after arriving, speaking to a bar tender about how "he's got damages " to his ship, and him telling another patron to "hey... get your own beer."

It seemed to be a low budget film, no recognizable stars by any means, just a cheesey late night Cinemax-type movie that I found to have laughably great one liners.

It is not Cherry 2000.

  • This sounds like the flavor of either Metalstorm or Ice Pirates, 1983 and 1984 respectively, but it's been decades since I've seen either one and I don't recall this level of detail. Almost resembles Moon Zero-Two as well, but that's a decade or more older.

Sounds like Space Truckers (1996)

John Canyon (played by Dennis Hopper) is an independant Space Trucker with an old, beat up space rig. He docks after off-loading a shipment of square pigs to refuel and get a bite. I don't recall the beer line, though. To make the bills, he takes on a load of sex dolls headed to Earth. Or, at least, that's what HE thinks!

  • Thank you so much ~ I checked it out and unfortunately it wasn't the movie ~ Thank you for your help though
