Some location shooting took place in Thousand Oaks, California. The beach that Celeste sets down in at the start is the same beach from Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990). See more »

[watching a video of two people having sex]
That is the weirdest thing I've ever seen.
That's why we gave it up 3,000 years ago.

The opening title scrolls across a backdrop of the galaxy. The end credits show Jessie playing basketball with her family, and Jon Lovitz on Celeste's spaceship, playing the piano surrounded by members of the 12th Navigational Command. See more »
Not bad at all (if you can accept something totally silly).
During the period when Richard Benjamin wasn't acting in any movies, he turned to directing, and "My Stepmother Is an Alien" was one of the results. It features nerdy astronomer Steven Mills (Dan Aykroyd) accidentally doing something that causes alien Celeste Martin (Kim Basinger) to get sent to earth. Naturally, she has to learn about everything step by step, causing some really wacky situations.
This movie's nothing special, but good for a laugh. You probably really like the scene where Celeste asks her purse "What is sex?". Also starring Alyson Hannigan, Jon Lovitz, and Seth Green. Oh, and most of us probably know that Aykroyd had already played Mr. Conehead on "SNL".
