Critic Reviews for Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Writer-director Olnek... deftly parodies the myriad tropes of low-budget sci-fi with obvious glee, from the alien's monotonal speech to wobbly camera-handling and cheesy special effects.

Olnek's sensibility is singular, and the work of the cast -- notably the sweetfaced Haas and the hilariously robotic Ziegler -- make for a movie that seeks, and earns, affection.

Ed Wood would have been proud.

The played-out scenarios in Olnek's first feature, such as Jane's sessions with her therapist, are soon outnumbered by inspired silliness, like tears shed over a revolving dessert tray in a diner.

Top Critic

With an ear for dialogue as sharp as her aliens looking for love in all the wrong spaces, director Madeleine Olneck hits the mark with this send-up of lesbian dating culture (alienation, get it?) packaged as a B-movie spoof.
