Life couldn't get much worse for News Producer Tim O'Hara. He humiliates the one he loves, Brace Channing and ends up getting fired by her father. Then, a Martian from Mars arrives in his home. The Martian adopts the name 'Uncle Martin' and becomes friends with Tim, whilst he fixes his ship. Unaware to Martin, Tim actually wants to reveal him to the world, but can he actually do that to his new friend and 'Uncle'? Written by
It could've been quite good. It wasn't. Has a few cute special effects, and a handful of sight gags and other jokes that are worth a major chuckle, but these don't save it. Particularly annoying is the painfully overwritten "supporting role" of Martin's wise-ass space suit. Yeah, his suit -- you'll understand if you see the film. I wouldn't say don't waste your money, but don't see this if something else is competing for your 8 bucks. Fans of the early-1960s Plymouth Valiant, or of pretentious & scantily clad women with British accents, may enjoy parts of it.
