Two talentless actors attempt to make it in the cruel world of showbiz. Without an ounce of talent between the two of them and their only strength being persistence, they'll do almost anything to attain their dream. Except let it go.

Nicole de Boer,
Near a backwoods Ontario small town, a young alien, on vacation, crashes in his ship. Disoriented, this confused young extraterrestrial is captured by a young boy who, after naming him Phil, introduces him to the stupor of hard liquor before the boy's hick father throws him out. Roaring drunk and bunking with a friendly talking beaver, Phil eventually wanders into a bar where his new addiction traps him even while he wants to go home. Meanwhile, a secret US black ops organization activates a drunken field agent to find the alien. However, while he searches, Phil's easily manipulated personality leads him down paths that profoundly affect his new native friends. Written by
In the flashback scene where Madame Madame (Nicole de Boer) remembers her mother Michelle (Claire Brosseau), most of Michelle's lecture is in French but was scripted in English. For one take, the actress spoke her most of her lines in French, and that's the one that ended up in the film. (The line "And work on your goddamn accent!" was always in English.) See more »
Beautiful film. Recalls a young Peter Jackson in his debut "Bad Taste." Don't be surprised if Rob Stefaniuk follows a similar path to film-making greatness
Future cult classic, low budget geniusness straight out of Canada. Stefaniuk is a proud man. This film is a delightful romp through the pristine wilderness of Ontario's remote northern locales. Blows "Aliens on Earth" films like MIB sky-high, showing yet again that exorbitant spending, weak special effects and lame dialog do not a glorious movie make. This movie is outrageously funny, and consistently so. Never once do you feel tired or bored throughout viewing, which by the way it stands up to several, unlike a vast majority of recent films. Writer/Director/Alien Stefaniuk elicits stunning performances from all of his great cast. There is nothing not to like about this film. I recommend it all costs. Easily a 5-star feature, deserves wider recognition. I truly believe Stefaniuk is a huge talent and will carve out an enviable legacy of film-making beauty.
