Movie Info

If aliens from another galaxy were to observe ordinary people as they look for love in contemporary America, what would they make of it? That is the premise of The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human, which takes the form of a documentary in which a camera crew from an alien civilization spies on a couple from Earth as they meet, fall in love, and navigate the bumpy road to matrimony, as a helpful narrator explains what's going on. The Male (Mackenzie Austin) encounters The Female (Carmen Electra) at The Sacred Meeting Ground (a nightclub in Los Angeles), and thus begins a long series of dates, conversations, sexual episodes, meetings of parents and friends, and finally marriage, as an expert (David Hyde Pierce) enlightens us as to what it all means. The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human was written and directed by Jeff Abugov, best known for his work in television on the series The Golden Girls, Roseanne, and Grace Under Fire; the supporting cast includes Lucy Liu, Markus Redmond, and Lisa Rontondi.more

HILARIOUSLY FANTASTIC!

it was like watching national geography or the animal planet, but the lead stars are homo sapiens!
as the title describes, it is about the mating habits of the male and female human specie. the narration was really witty and made me smile a few times. it is worth watching if you have nothing else to do.

Kind of a mixed bag, some of it works and works well, but not always, and it does get a little tiresome after an hour or so. Good supporting cast.
