Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

Extremely Funny!
24 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I started watching this movie thinking it might be a little funny but worth a try. I ended up thinking this was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.Some parts reminded me a bit of Austin Powers type movie but a lot funnier. Very quirky - the beaver is great. I've watched it twice already and it is one I think I will have to be purchasing. I have to admit I usually don't like low budget films especially comedies but Phil has changed all that. I'm hoping for more movies to come from this director/writer/actor and maybe more Canadians will start enjoying Canadian films. Anyway, I would encourage anyone to give Phil the Alien a try and if you're not a complete stick in the mud you'll like it.
