SYNOPSIS:  A rogue star, code-named Gorath, is cutting a swath of destruction through the solar system on a collision course with Earth. Not to fear, though. Japan has a bold plan to save the world. No, it's not what you're thinking. I have no idea what you're thinking, but I'm sure it's not this.

Most Ludicrous Premise

The Rocket Is Lit, And So's the Producer
Since the rogue star Gorath is on a collision course with Earth, the only way to save the world is to build a giant nuclear rocket at the South Pole and fly the Earth out of the way. If you consider the movie to be Show & Tell, this is the Show.

Crummiest Ending

Can't We All Just Get Along?
The success of the South Pole Project has made the world safe for inane philosophizing.
