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

Jennifer visited the set on several occasions and, for fun, agreed to appear as an extra in the grocery store scene. She and the film's director, Sam Irvin, play a couple in the grocery line behind Bill Campbell. See more »
This is one of those movies that you're a little embarrassed to like and to watch, but you do. Your wife catches you with this playing, and you have to say, "I don't know what this is, it was just on." But every time you see it on the cable/satellite/uverse guide, you have to watch it. Maybe you even DVR it and keep it until you're out of space! Not me. I like this movie. Come on. Admit it. This is a scifi movie making fun of scifi movies and the people who watch them: us. In truth, this is no sillier than X-Files or Signs or Star Trek. It just doesn't pretend to be anything else. The Christmas tree lights in the alien tunnel, though, is my favorite subtle crossover reference.
Now that I've said all this, I've got to go look over at Netflix and see if it is available for streaming!
