Storyline

A highly advanced civilization, whose citizens feel no emotion and reproduce by cloning, plans to conquer Earth from the inside by sending an operative, fashioned with a humming, mechanical penis, to impregnate a human and stay until the birth. The alien, Harold Anderson, goes to Phoenix as a banker and sets to work finding a mate. His approaches to women are inept, and the humming phallus doesn't help, but on the advice of a banking colleague, he cruises an A.A. meeting, meets Susan, and somehow convinces her to marry him. The clock starts to tick: will she conceive, have a baby, and lose Harold (and the child) to his planet before he discovers emotion and starts to care? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[first lines]
Title Card: At the far reaches of the Universe lies a planet of men who have advanced technologically beyond the realm of human comprehension. This is no breeding - they are a product of cloning, and their reproductive organs have shrunk and disappeared. All emotions have been bred out of this race and each succeeding generation has become more ambitious and driven than the previous one. They want to rule the Universe, and now they are planning their next takeover from the inside.

Funny! Funny! But so true in some things.
13 February 2001 | by (Tennessee, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie. I think it is better on video because at home you can laugh out loud and not offend anyone. All the actors had great lines through out the movie. But a new one to watch for is Rebecca the stewardess (Judy Greer). Linda Fiorentino was outstanding, as usual, to bad her part wasn't larger.

All is all a lot of fun. Enjoy!!!!
