Who here has seen Heartbeeps (1981)

I was flipping through the channels over the weekend and TNTHD had some movie with these actors dressed up as robots - the voice of one of the robots sounded like Lakia (sp) from Taxi.... I waited until there was a closeup and it was Andy Kaufman!!

I had never heard of or seen this movie before... I sucked so bad that I had to watch it.

1) Who came up with that title? Worst title ever... not even a clever play on words like "Short Circut"

2) Has anyone else seen this pile of garbage?

Being an Andy Kaufman fan, I was always interested in this, and was happy to see it listed on TNT HD. I never really expected much, but was curious about it, so I Tivo'd it.

Well, I'm curious no more. After watching the first 15-20 minutes, I fast forwarded through the rest just to see if anything interesting popped up. Nope. What a piece of shit.

All that great make-up work gone to waste.

The film is a complete bore...unless you're 5 years-old.
