While out in the desert, a younger brother and older adopted-sister find a 20-something naked man where they expect to find a fallen meteorite. The man does not speak their language and knows little of everyday things in the world but exhibits some remarkable abilities. They come to understand he's not quite of this world and needs to leave before the end of the day or he'll die, but there's a dim-witted deputy out to detain him. Written by statmanjeff

2 April 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

I wasn't very moved by this harmless flick for kids 10-to-15 (???) years old. Others may feel differently, but I found the performances to be too restrained and the viewer being asked to be over-accepting, even though we're dealing with fantasy here: A single-being spacecraft crash-lands on earth, and a girl (not much over the driving age) and her brother (not much under the driving age) befriend the non-English-speaking alien, helping him with encounters involving their divorced father, a bumbling deputy, a stodgy government lady and an unrealistic photographer/professor/agent, among others. Also, Adrienne Barbeau provides some initial language-deciphering, given her character's knowledge of Native American words, from which the foreigner's speech has evolved. An element of suspense is created by the fact that the stay must end within a certain amount of time. And, as the visitor performs various tasks (such as restoring life to a dead rabbit), he's gradually depleting/not replentishing/running out of energy. My impression was that the kids' knowledge of what to do, and what things meant, was unbelievably excessive. This all causes a less-than-mediocre evaluation to come from here.
