A hateful experience.
31 December 2004 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt the single most atrociously insulting movie I can remember, and I mean that it insults the viewer in what amounts to an almost violently aggressive way. The fact that it rips-off "E.T." in almost every plot-point is bad enough; but did the filmmakers HAVE to turn the basic idea into a giant plug for a well-known burger franchise? Anyone who can't see the exploitation for what it is must be obtuse to the point of imbecility.

The little alien is badly designed. It's incredibly ugly, and the only time when the aliens stand-out favorably is when they do their haunting whistling. Otherwise, forget it.

The lead in this, Jade Calegory, deserves some praise. He never let his own real-life disability slow him down and he's actually a pretty accomplished actor. It's a shame that he had to be in this. If he ever had hopes of an acting career, it was effectively MURDERED by his appearance here. It had to be embarrassing for him, unless he's got thicker skin than I give him credit for.

I do, however, have one wish: if anyone who is reading this can make it happen, PLEASE put this out on Region 1 DVD, at least! It would be a hit, if only because so many people would buy it to see how awful it really is.

And it is.
