Extraterrestrial Reviews

June 22, 2012
It's easy to settle in for the oddball charms of this tale of love among the ruins.

June 15, 2012
A bone-dry and nearly pitch-perfect combo of romantic comedy, absurdist farce and alien-invasion drama...
June 14, 2012
A tiresome roundelay of lies, lust and leaping paranoia.

As comedies go, it's as dry as bleached bones in the desert, but you can't blame Vigalondo for taking another shot at cleverness.

There is originality, certainly. But Vigalondo teased us with the moon and the stars, and delivered only the terrestrial.

Quirky, but infinitely more interesting than big-budget Hollywood cousins.

A lightly comic genre piece where not much happens and no one has much amusing to say.

Extraterrestrial is a comedy dropped agreeably into an alien invasion-well, maybe not invasion. The spaceship just sits there.
June 12, 2012
Guided by director Nacho Vigalondo's understated wit, the story never adheres to expectations.

Results are offbeat and amusing, but also a bit thin as the whole essentially amounts to one long shaggy-dog joke.
