Movie Info

This sci-fi offering from director Peter Hunt boasts an unsympathetic cast of three aliens who have escaped from their spacecraft docked on the moon. Robyn (Sydney Penny) is the female alien watching over young Tavy (Rosie Marcel) and the three-armed, three-eyed baby Kirbi who feeds on gasoline and hot coals. Dirt (Ricky Paull Goldin) is a friendly soul who adopts the three aliens, but he runs into trouble after the captain of the spaceship lands nearby and starts looking for the trio. More complications set in when a senator arrives at Dirt's father's ranch and a local cop starts to suspect the alien captain of murderous intentions toward the politician.

75% "Things are changing. It's not like when we were young. Yeah, people are different. The weather is different, the whole earth is different."-Grandpa (Keenan Wynn) Kirby was the shit.

It's alright, but nothing really stucked out to me. The characters are decent but there didn't seem to be enough development to feel for them. The alien creature was just goofy. The story isn't bad though, and the ending is a bit touching. It just seems like there's not much else that stands out for this movie.

very cliched visitor from another planet movie. The thing I liked most was kirby the three eyes three legged walking, flying and shooting pet. He likes to drink gasoline and shoot these weird things out of his eyes. The movie itself was not awful but really cheesy and so cliche that I knew pretty much what would happen. I love when the doctors are so amazed at this lifeform and how different it was. I mean the whole movie is about how the human race will not be ready for aliens but it got so boring with that line that you got sick of the movie.
