Silly Encounters of the Pie Kind
9 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this short back in the early 80's, and loved it! (still have it on an aging VHS after taping it from TV way back then...)

My brother and I still quote from it to this day!

A brilliant parody of "Close Encounters" and wonderfully silly. Great "bad" acting throughout, and you won't be able to hear the that five tone alien greeting without a grin after this...

A couple favorite quotes:

(after seeing the number 3.14159 being repeated on the computer screen) "It just keeps saying the same just keeps saying the same thing!" "Wait! I was a mathematician before I became a bad actor, that number is pi!"

"hmmmm..this means something..."
