A Pulitzer Prize winning photographer named Mosley gets kicked off his job by his boss (Bobcat Goldthwait) for not taking sensational pictures consistently. He finds an old camera in a pack-rat's yard sale, which he later finds has some undeveloped film in it. He develops it, sees proof of aliens abducting a man, and tries to ask different people, including the Air Force, newspaper, a UFO freak, and finally a tabloid to help him. The tabloid publishes his story in a way that makes fun of him. He heads to the tabloid office to confront the president, gets in a fight, and tossed in jail, where he meets yet another UFO freak (Billy Bob Thornton). He gets bailed out (just in time!) by a beautiful young woman named Paige whose father was in the pictures being abducted, and has disappeared ever since... Written by

This is a good popcorn movie for lighthearted viewing and entertainment. The reason I give this movie an above average score is due to the use of computer lingo within the script. That may seem like a silly reason at first, but the movie was made in 1994? and released in 1995, so the terminology was state of the art (sort of) for the time, and still better then some of the big name rubbish still being produced.
