Quotes

Amanda: I always thought that when I fell in love, it would be with a musician or an artist or someone really politically active, not an alien that lives on human flesh.

Quirky, Sexy, Funny
6 January 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Amanda, gifted artist and fashion trend setter, discovers her boyfriend has been unfaithful. Meanwhile, an alien is on the loose in LA, one who can take over the body of a human being in seconds. Naturally, Amanda and the alien meet at a nightclub, with Amanda spotting the being's weird behavior. Inviting the alien to her house, Amanda starts to give her tips on how to act more like a human. The doorbell rings. Amanda's old boyfriend has shown up. What mayhem will occur? This movie is a quirky and humorous look at the world of aliens. It does, however, contain some fairly explicit sexual scenes, making it inappropriate for all audiences. Amanda is adorable and her zany costumes delight, too. Law enforcement officials pursuing the alien give wonderful tongue-in-cheek performances as well. Recommended as a surefire party movie for a college dormitory or a boomers gathering on New Year's Eve. This film entertains, without any emotional baggage at film's end.
