January 1, 2000
A testicle-tweaking satire on men trying to get in touch with feelings most of them didn't know they had.
January 1, 2000
This movie wants to be sweet and dark at the same time, but it is as distant as a planet's satellite.

The film just sort of lies there -- inspiration gone, premise spent, synthentic possibilities utterly exhausted.
January 1, 2000
Bottom line, this is American Pie for boys-will -be- boys in the fiftysomething age range.

Bening, even in a formula role like this one, is so lovable she actually makes you believe that she'd melt the resolve of a technocratic space visitor.

If you're expecting humor of the Sanders quality here, you won't get it, nor will you find that Shandling has a wide enough range as an actor.

Consistently humorous, often downright funny.
January 1, 2000
The picture barely works as a silly adult sex farce, it isn't nearly freewheeling and naughty enough.
January 1, 2000
The only eruption this movie evokes is a loud yawn.
January 1, 2000
Just what the universe needs. A movie that forces you to fixate on Garry Shandling's crotch.

A film whose tone is out of sync with the simple, ribald conceit and is only mildly amusing at best.
January 1, 2000
Easily the funniest movie of the year.

Has a lot of jokes that register intellectually, but rarely does it poke you in a place where you can't help but squeal.
January 1, 2000
How did smart people of proven talent make such a lame movie?
January 1, 2000
Whatever planet produced this sex comedy, it's not indicating many signs of intelligent life.
January 1, 2000
Diverting.
January 1, 2000
Shandling and director Mike Nichols find a funny new way of packaging the old truth in What Planet Are You From?
January 1, 2000
It's amazing that a movie with so many sex jokes can turn out to be so unfunny.

Thirteen year-old boys would love the film if they could get into this R-rated picture.

If you're making a movie about a man who has a strange noise coming from his pants, you should cast an actor who looks different when it isn't.
