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

During the filming, leading man Bill Campbell was, in real-life, dating actress Jennifer Connelly, his co-star in "The Rocketeer." 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 »
Out There, with its star studded cast, was a fresh relief from the boring old "Alien with Tentacles" and "Alien with Ray Gun" movies of lately. Independence Day, Alien, Predator, Species.... even Mars Attacks, all have aliens who try to annihilate the Humans. Here, the aliens are trying to... well, CHEAT us, through the Universe Marketing Consortium, by making us join them.
Outrageously funny, outrageously..... Out There.
