Movie Info

David Alan Basche (Carry Me Home, crazylove) stars in I'll Believe You, as Dale Sweeney, the radio host of an immensely unpopular late-night talk program on the AM dial. The only listeners whom Sweeney ever manages to drum up are nutty, half-zonked small-town denizens who want to discuss UFO sightings on the airwaves. Just prior to the final broadcast, with the program in arm's length of cancellation, Sweeney receives a strange phone call from an individual who speaks anxiously in an unintelligible language. The next morning, two federal agents turn up to question Sweeney, demonstrating heightened interest in one of the latest UFO sightings. Dale thus concludes that the caller was in fact an extraterrestrial, lost in his small town. He decides to report on the happenings during his broadcasts (which quadruples his audience size) and then bandies the locals into a collective search for the alien.

UFO-spotting crazies and their fellow conspiracy theorists have a friend in Dale Sweeney in I'll Believe You, an off-kilter extraterrestrial comedy.

Cult movies have been made with a lot less, but this one, harmless enough, doesn't have enough originality or personality to get it off the ground.

Audience Reviews for I'll Believe You

½

You know, going in to a movie knowing next to nothing about it other than the front DVD cover and who stars on it, is sometimes a great way of seeing stuff. The two films above this were seen in such a way, and without any ideas as to whether I would like or not like either one, I loved one, hated the other. This movie here was always viewed in such a way. And in this case, I love it also. I expected crap based on the silly cover and the B-comedians who star, despite the presecne of Evil Johnny (aka Patrick Warburton) on it. This had some of the funniest non-seuiturs and throw-away one liners I've heard in a long time. The plot was really fun, and the ending was great!

In one word, 'meh'.

Yet another movie that has a great idea, good cast, but which is ruined by aiming for being overly feel good. They're just screaming "we have heart!" so strongly, and amid pratfalls and the like it just falls short.

It's played off coast am as understood by someone who's never heard it, or known the kind of crazy people it tries to portray. Or just as much someone who's never known an actual scientist.

It's cute, but forgettable. Except for being such a waste of a great cast and idea.
