No, those words weren't mine; a character actually said them. But it's my sentiment. This one gets a 5 because it averages out: about a 2 in scientific plausibility, but up around 8 on the amusement meter, because it's so ridiculous.
Evidently, an hours-long meteor shower decides to strike all in one spot, even though the Earth is a moving target. Some little southwestern town that is known for not meteors, but UFO visits. The daughter of the hero is crowned "Miss UFO," while his son is threatened in a home invasion by some punk with a gun. It gets sillier. Miss UFO is in a toy spacecraft, celebrating her great honor, when the meteorites decide to drop in. They always hit a target dead on, never missing anything. Two of the most sublimely idiotic hits are a human victim reduced to smoking shoes, and a truck winds up having a big hole in it.
Whatever the hero is doing, the meteorites decide to interfere. They blast a bridge two seconds before he uses it, they blast a mine two seconds before he hides in it etc. Rescues are always effected with the same magic two-seconds-to-spare margin; in one case the rescue comes just before the toy UFO plunges five feet to destruction.
Every natural disaster movie ploy ever known is cranked out for your laughter, and this movie is a must for fans of this kind of campy silliness.
