Awkwardly mixex comedy, romance, and out-there fantasy.

The 'comic' musical score is an embarrassment out of a '60s sitcom, and the supporting actors wouldn't make the cut at a high school audition.
| Original Score: 0/4

UFOs in Brooklyn? Fuggedaboutit!

Aliens offer a cure for earthling ennui in From Other Worlds, a limp sci-fi comedy with fewer laughs than a meeting of Abductees Anonymous.

There are a few funny jokes scattered throughout, but the halfhearted direction and clunky script are underscored by performances that feel like they belong in community theater.

The film's underdeveloped characters and thin -- though busy -- story are forced into the foreground, and its 88-minute running time feels far longer.

The word "slight" doesn't even begin to describe how minor the quirky indie comedy From Other Worlds turns out to be...
| Original Score: C+

Picture a campy cross of My Stepmother Is an Alien (1988) and The Brother from Another Planet (1984) in which you get to enjoy laughs galore, allusions to horror classics, and a timely social message.

This is all very lightweight and low-budget stuff, but this pleasant comedy sort of grows on the viewer. There is nothing earth-shaking here, but the film is likeable in a gentle way.

A versatile attempt at the sci-fi genre, which makes its mark by not being an outright sci-fi movie.

Amiable and arch comedy.

From Other Worlds may not be out of this world. But it makes diverting earthly entertainment.
