This is a 1973 futuristic comic SF drama directed by Woody Allen.
The plot involves the adventures of Miles Monroe, the owner of a health food store who is cryogenically frozen in 1973 and defrosted 200
years later in an ineptly-led police state.
The scientists who revive him are members of a rebellion.
22nd-century America seems to be a police state ruled by a dictator.
The rebels hope to use Miles as a spy to infiltrate the Aires Project, because he is the only member of this society without a known biometric identity.
The authorities discover the scientists' project, and arrest them.
Miles escapes by disguising himself as a robot, and goes to work as a butler in the house of socialite Luna Schlosser.
I like the scenes of Woody Allen's robot better than anything else.
I find those scenes quite hilarious.
Otherwise, the acting of the actors seem amateuristic and mediocre.

Not a big fan of Mr. Allen and this movie reinforces that. But OK if you want way out and absurd for a laugh

An American classic slapstick movie of the early 1970's.. for some it's uproariously and knee-slappingly funny. Movie goers who are familiar with New York, esp Woody Allen's New York, with his Jewish comedy neuroses will do well; the movie holds its own nearly 40 years later. Back in the 1990's a NYTimes reporter wrote an article about a movie theatre owner in a small Texas city; the theater owner said Woody Allen doesn't fly in his neck-of-the-woods. And some of the time-dated humor with its references to 1960's and early 1970's real people will be completely lost on movie goers younger than their late 50's. For those old enough, it's a timeless gem. The 200 year old VW bug alone is worth waiting for; the Tennessee Williams play takeoff: incomparable.

This is another one of the movies that is on my list of "Weirdest Films Ever." Woody Allen wakes up in a future that is very bizarre and nonsensical and not really funny considering this is supposedly a comedy.
