Amiable and arch comedy.

The 'comic' musical score is an embarrassment out of a '60s sitcom, and the supporting actors wouldn't make the cut at a high school audition.

There are a few funny jokes scattered throughout, but the halfhearted direction and clunky script are underscored by performances that feel like they belong in community theater.

Aliens offer a cure for earthling ennui in From Other Worlds, a limp sci-fi comedy with fewer laughs than a meeting of Abductees Anonymous.

A versatile attempt at the sci-fi genre, which makes its mark by not being an outright sci-fi movie.

From Other Worlds may not be out of this world. But it makes diverting earthly entertainment.

The word "slight" doesn't even begin to describe how minor the quirky indie comedy From Other Worlds turns out to be...

Picture a campy cross of My Stepmother Is an Alien (1988) and The Brother from Another Planet (1984) in which you get to enjoy laughs galore, allusions to horror classics, and a timely social message.

Awkwardly mixex comedy, romance, and out-there fantasy.

This is all very lightweight and low-budget stuff, but this pleasant comedy sort of grows on the viewer. There is nothing earth-shaking here, but the film is likeable in a gentle way.
