4 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

Unlike to the USA, France didn't make a lot of movies with extra-terrestrials. Here, the extra-terrestrial doesn't look like E.T. or Alien. He's got a nearly human aspect and he doesn't mean to invade the earth as it was the case with "Independence Day". No, he just tries to escape from his kidnappers. Maybe, will he succeed in finding help on Earth.

The movie was made by a member of the French comical trio: "les Inconnus", Didier Bourdon who also plays the lead role. You must admit that his movie is far from being a success. Nevertheless, it constitutes a good moment and introduces a gentle but sometimes crude humor even if the comic effects are a bit easy and sometimes predictable.

The movie turns out to be entertaining thanks to its funny situations in spite of a common and hollow screenplay and some poor special effects. Moreover, if Didier Bourdon makes laugh in his role of clumsy extra-terrestrial, his costume is really laughable.

At the end, a flat and even pointless movie. It's a pity that Bourdon attaches little importance to Bernard Campan. It seems that this last one's got a decorative role because he's badly used during an important part of the movie. However, the two actors used to belong to the same comic band (les Inconnus) and they were very close friends.
