Title - 3 variations rather than 2
29 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A brief note about the title. I watched it on a DVD distributed by Laugh.com (so it says on the DVD surface), rented from Blockbuster.com. The title on the surface is The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe. I know this is not the original title; that the original title is intentionally misspelled. However, the opening credits of the video itself list it as The Search for Signs of Inteligint Life in the Universe. That is, the video's opening credits have the last vowel in 'intelligent' as an 'i', rather than an 'e', as IMDb has it. If this opening sequence is original to the production, not tacked on later, then IMDb's title is erroneous. I tried to add this variant at least as an alternate title, but it appears I lack the privileges to do this. So I've submitted this note. Should anybody who has the ability to make changes see this, please investigate further & make corrections as needed.

A bravura piece, by the way.
