Not too exciting but very sweet all the same
30 December 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

In this family friendly sci-fi movie an alien race, who look like humans, have set up a base on the dark side of the moon. Two alien girls stow away on a trip to Earth and decide to stay on the planet. They plan to prove to their elders that mankind is mature enough to be able to handle extra-terrestrial contact. They end up in the American mid-west and are soon in contact with some locals; meanwhile the captain of their ship pursues them.

This gentle natured yarn is difficult to entirely dislike. To give it a hard time would be akin to kicking a puppy. You would feel ashamed and always regret it. I would only be being honest if I said that it's not exactly great though. It has a Saturday late morning feeling to it, which is not a bad thing exactly but it never really goes anywhere too interesting either. The story boils down to a romantic sub-plot. You know that old chestnut - human boy meets alien girl. The characterisation is actually pretty decent which does help things a bit. While the petrol drinking, three-eyed and limbed alien pet is quite an impressive bit of special effects work all things considered. The plot-line overall never gets particularly exciting but it's charming to a certain extent.

The one thing that did amaze me a little bit though was when I was watching it I thought to myself that the little gap-toothed girl looked exactly like a child version of the ice queen surgeon from the British hospital TV drama Holby City. To my utter amazement I discovered later on that this was indeed the very same person, Rosie Marcel. It sure proves that old saying that little girls can grow up in very interesting ways…
