Storyline

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...

Pretty bad
15 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this low-budget TV flick, a down-on-his-heels photojournalist (Bill Campbell) buys an old camera at a lawn sale only to find a roll of unexposed film inside. He develops it to discover some family pictures as well as two men on a hunting trip. The men encounter a UFO and one of them is then shown being kidnapped by aliens. The photographer shares the pictures with a reporter from Omni Magazine who is actually a writer for a Weekly Sun-type rag, which mocks him in print. He also shows them to an Air Force general (Rod Steiger) who quickly sends him packing. Eventually, he encounters the daughter (Wendy Schaal) of the kidnapped man and they go on a search for the truth. Problem is, the movie is strictly tongue-in-cheek, and consists mainly of talking heads, and no action. This is not the X-Files, after all. Several familiar faces turn up in smaller roles, including Julie Brown, Billy Bob Thornton, Jill St. John and Paul Dooley. Skip it.
