Ryan Richmond is an eccentric teenager living with his mother, father, sister and brother in the Holiday Inn they own in Sunnyvale, Arizona, the prune capital of the world. Is it any wonder that he wants to go to Saudi Arabaia for college and leave Sunnyvale far, far behind? He spends his days at school with his sex-obsessed best friend Dan Forrester and lusts after Lisa Winston, the sexy lounge singer who his parents have hired to perform at the Holiday Inn. Stuck without a date for his brother's wedding to a senator's daughter, Ryan goes to a computer dating service, which asks him such questions as "Can you breathe foreign substances?" Soon, Ryan is told that he may be an alien stuck on Earth along with thousands of others. Soon, Charles and Edna Pinsky show up and tell him that he may an alien prince meant to lead his brethren home. And that's when things get out of control... Written by
I was in this movie as an extra cast as one of the people who "did not quite fit in". Sense this accurately describes me it was fun doing it, but there were things filmed that never made it to the screen. Sometimes the people over the extras did not seem to know themselves what the movie was all about and consequently, the cast (at least the extras) where not sure either. I think it could have been better with better direction. I think it was entertaining if you had and hour to kill but I would not rank it as one of my favorites. I do think that what it attempted to say was important. I think at some point in our lives we all feel like we don't quite fit in. If you can take from this film anything I would hope it would be that it's okay to be unique. You don't have to be a cookie cutter person. I like that.
