Critic Reviews for Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
Writer-director Olnek... deftly parodies the myriad tropes of low-budget sci-fi with obvious glee, from the alien's monotonal speech to wobbly camera-handling and cheesy special effects.
Olnek's sensibility is singular, and the work of the cast -- notably the sweetfaced Haas and the hilariously robotic Ziegler -- make for a movie that seeks, and earns, affection.
Ed Wood would have been proud.
The played-out scenarios in Olnek's first feature, such as Jane's sessions with her therapist, are soon outnumbered by inspired silliness, like tears shed over a revolving dessert tray in a diner.
With an ear for dialogue as sharp as her aliens looking for love in all the wrong spaces, director Madeleine Olneck hits the mark with this send-up of lesbian dating culture (alienation, get it?) packaged as a B-movie spoof.
Audience Reviews for Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
This film is one of those secret gems hiding in the deep depths of Netflix destined to become a cult classic by word of mouth, an accidental discovery late night Saturday curled up with Netflix, or just by adventurous viewers who seek out low budget indie fares. What we have here is a lighthearted film, with nothing to do with the politics of sexuality (which I expected) but more concerned about the "human" and in this film even the "alien" desire for connection to another person. There's some great witty dialogue to be had here, along with very very funny gags. All of it is a wrapped up in a film that pokes fun at the Z grade Sci Fi films from the 50s and 60s. Im sure somebody else already said this, Ed Wood would be super proud. Haven't heard of Ed Wood?!! I suggest you look him up!.
One line summary: Seventy-six minutes of not funny. ------------------------- Inhabitants of an alien planet decide that their ozone depletion can only be solved by one or two of their race having their hearts broken. Zoinx and Zylar are dispatched to Earth to have their hearts broken. Zoinx meets Jane and eventually gets to know her somewhat. Two men-in-black types observe this process, and attempt to blur the memories of any sightings. It seems, though, that no intervention is needed; nobody notices anything in this film. Jokes are made about new foods: alcoholic beverages, coffee, desserts. Jokes are made about culture clashes. All jokes failed. The aliens go home by means that challenge the lower bounds of all SFX. This was one of the worst SFX films ever made. In the right hands, that might have been funny. ------Scores------ Cinematography: 2/10 Greyscale, so-so in quality. The quality dropped off when the camera work switched to shaky cam. Sound: 2/10 Irritating electronic music. Irritating alien voices. Irritating background rap music. Acting: 0/10 Screenplay: 0/10 Nothing comedic, nothing engaging, nothing informative, nothing touching.
