Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Mullican and Hill are rescuing ALF, Mullican says, "six of his seven stomachs must be full." This is an error. According to the TV series on which this movie is based, ALF has 8 stomachs, not seven.See more »
ALF:[Rick is angrily venting his contempt for Dexter Moyers] Rick, I've never seen you like this.
Dr. Mullican:Nah, I just don't like the guy, is all.
ALF:No, I mean from this angle... and I thought I had a lot of nose hair.

Why is any member of the original casting NOT in this movie?
could it have been too much ego and not enough money.

Nosferatu, Casablanca, Raging Bull, Starwars, Project Alf, 14 January 2002
Author: Glenn (hail_to_ash) from Romsey, England

Every generation has beared witness to a landmark film which has changed the course of movie making forever, for mine it was Project Alf. For what may appear to be a simple, perhaps lackluster film, only made to profit further from the television programme. To a real film critic turns out to be an advenure through the emotions, which will result in days of digestion, as only then will one truly understand and appreciate the artistry involved. Alfs acting is impecable, making the question of what ever happened to him and his career in hollywood a daunting one in the mind of the viewer. I last heard that he was doing missionary work in the Amazon - however that is only hearsay. So to the person who has taken the time to read my column on Project Alf (most probably Kev), I hope that you have benefited and take time to see the film, over and over again. A must See !!!!!
