This remake of the classic, I married a Monster from Outer Space, is a very enjoyable piece of sci fi cotton candy, without any deep insights to be gained, but a nice way to spend an evening and preferable to watching crappy sitcoms or dumb reality shows. There's nothing really scary in it and there are nice moments of humor as we watch the alien become acclimated to human habits and behavior. Kind of a more serious version of the "Third Rock" sitcom, and actually not as good as it. Yet it is nicely paced and doesn't slack off or run dry, and it's seemingly a bit oriented towards the womens' point of view, likely since it is directed by a woman and that makes it all the more interesting. I saw it on VHS which was fun because all of the points where the commercials are cut in instead cut to the next scene, which gave me a nice sense of relief each time it happened. With several nifty scenes of aliens and effects, it's definitely worth the $2 I paid for it, and I have no qualms about watching it with my any girls who can't stand scary films, but like soap opera. They'll dig it.
