Here's to You, Missing Robinsons

Updated Lost in Space is a high-tech trash treat

Mimi Rogers, who's almost as sexy as the old show's June Lockhart, is luckier--she stays out of the movie's way. As is usually the case with family-values propaganda, Lost in Space spends so much time worrying about what Dan Quayle calls "the importance of fathers" that it completely ignores the far more devoted mother.

Part of the plot hinges on an encounter, through a time warp, with a grown-up Will (Jared Harris). While Will and the emotionally neglectful John go through all sorts of Sturm und Drang with each other, the nurturing doormat Maureen rates only a dismissive "It's good to see you, Mom" from her son.
