Ridiculous movie. It tries way too hard to be funny, and then wont stop trying until you're embarrassed to be watching. I like the actors, but they shouldn't have agreed to do this movie. It's much too goofy for its own good. I don't recommend it.
Another film for Aykroyd in 88 only this time in my humble opinion its a weak one with a very silly B-movie type premise and a poor performance from the over hyped (at the time) Basinger. Even Aykroyd can't save this very average film with his usual zany comedy and fast quips, the effects are really dated and I don't think event that good for its time whilst the comedy is lacking, all the film does really is show how poor an actress Basinger is. Look out for a very young Seth Green and of course Alyson Hannigan.
A very funny movie. I wish Dan Aykroyd had done more movies like this. The story was entertaining. Trivia: The daughter was played by Allison Hannigan and her boyfriend was played by Seth Green. The two would later play a couple in the Buffy tv series.
Kim Basinger's no comedieene, but there are some nice touches in this tale of a gorgeous alien getting hitched to Dan Aykroyd so that she can save her planet from his invention and, along the way, learn all about love, sex and sneezing.
Some funny moments with this alien adapting to life on earth, but mostly typical "fish outta water" stuff. Pretty ridiculous that this would be marketed to children with the 11 y.o. girl hoping to get her dad laid. And when he gets some from the chick he met 3 hours prior the daughter is all kinds of happy for him. No wonder my mom wouldn't let me watch so much stuff when I was this age!
I remember watching this as a kid and Kim Basinger's purse with the eyeball (aka Mother) creeping me out. Overall, when you see the opening, you will know what to expect. It's the type of movie only the 80s could get away with- a sci-fi romantic comedy with heartwarming family moments.
This movie is not that bad of a film. Kim Basinger and Dan Aykroyd star in this 1988 comedy film. An female alien comes to Earth anf falls for a scienctist. A funny movie with some interesting moments.
