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 Kenneth Chisholm

Most Amazing ** Canadian** movie!
8 July 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I must admit that Canadians have never been to successful in creating amazing movies... but Phil the Alien is a hilarious movie. It's a bit corny at times, and has weak special effects but overall i liked it. The main character(also the director and writer)is an excellent actor, and he knows how to make an audience laugh, which is the whole point of this movie. This movie may have dull moments at times but the humor is irresistible, and i believe that this movie deserves an award for it's excellence unlike other comedies that are high budget movies and do nothing but waste your time (hate to mention titles but it has to be done, Scary Movie 3 & 4)The whole cast is brilliant, you can tell that they have chemistry because of the wonderful job they do together. And even though there's a lot of swearing and "dirty" words being used throughout the whole movie, it's still very amusing; which is a warning for people who don't enjoy movies with foul language and unappropriated actions or violence. But don't get me wrong if you don't mind those things, then you need to watch this movie because it's one of a kind, truly one of a kind.
