It's easy to settle in for the oddball charms of this tale of love among the ruins.
| Original Score: 3/5
A bone-dry and nearly pitch-perfect combo of romantic comedy, absurdist farce and alien-invasion drama...
A tiresome roundelay of lies, lust and leaping paranoia.
| Original Score: 2/5
As comedies go, it's as dry as bleached bones in the desert, but you can't blame Vigalondo for taking another shot at cleverness.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
There is originality, certainly. But Vigalondo teased us with the moon and the stars, and delivered only the terrestrial.
Quirky, but infinitely more interesting than big-budget Hollywood cousins.
A lightly comic genre piece where not much happens and no one has much amusing to say.
| Original Score: C-
Extraterrestrial is a comedy dropped agreeably into an alien invasion-well, maybe not invasion. The spaceship just sits there.
Results are offbeat and amusing, but also a bit thin as the whole essentially amounts to one long shaggy-dog joke.
