Unfunny movie (somehow a spoof of movies like «Terminator») about two aliens stucked on planet Earth after a little mishap with their spacecraft. The script doesn't offers anything more than a few smiles here and there. One could expect a lot more of it from a movie like this. See «Les Visiteurs» for more fun. The only thing a bit funny about «L'Extraterrestre» is the way Zerph is always complaining about Earth being so backward technology wise.
The acting is actually not that bad. Daniel Bourdon (Zerph) is better at it than at directing. Bernard Campan's character (Yeb) is not that funny, but he still delivers a not so bad performance. But Daniel Bourdon, the director, seems to forget that to make a good comedy, you need a little more than a dose of body noises and vulgarity.
Out of 100, I give it 62. That's good for *½ out of ****.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on November 12th, 2002.
