Shandling's a bland black hole that obliterates whatever trace of energy or inspiration mustered by this unwieldy film.

It all seems to suffer from jet lag and a lame script and a bad case of crassness.

The movie offers not one shred of insight, comic or otherwise, into the eternal conflict between the sexes.

There are some amusing cameos and small parts and a number of very good one liners, but by god, this is really a shame.

Lightweight material to be sure, but it's fun just the same.

Find this funny? So do I. But not for two hours.

A vulgar, sci-fi rehashing of the same old Mars vs. Venus material that's been visited before in 10,000 romantic comedies.

The film fails on just about every count.

Christian Science Monitor
January 1, 2000
Although it offers a few good laughs, the movie often seems like a second-rate parody of more original pictures.

Just what the universe needs. A movie that forces you to fixate on Garry Shandling's crotch.

What Planet Are You From? has a couple of good ideas and a lot of dead air.

Has a lot of jokes that register intellectually, but rarely does it poke you in a place where you can't help but squeal.

A film whose tone is out of sync with the simple, ribald conceit and is only mildly amusing at best.
