Trivia

When Mulder and Scully go looking for the CSM at the ruins of the Anasazi-pueblos, and Scully asks what they're doing there, Mulder points at a window in the ruins (from which smoke appears). In the next shot, you can obviously see that he is not pointing but giving the "evil eye" sign. Within Christianity, this gesture means protection against the devil, and might be a nod to the CSM's devilish nature. See more »

Quotes

Scully: What are you thinking? Mulder?
Mulder: I'm thinking... I'm a guilty man. I've failed in every respect. I deserve the harshest punishment for my crimes.
Scully: You don't believe that.
Mulder: I believe... that I sat in a motel room like this with you when we first met... and I tried to convince you of the truth. And in that respect, I succeeded, but... in every other way... I've failed.
Scully: You don't believe that, either.
Mulder: Mm. I've been chasing after monsters with a butterfly net. You heard the man - the date's set. I ...

Mulder & Scully: YES Aliens: NO!
15 November 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, PA USA) – See all my reviews

I was a longtime fan of the X-Files, although I never really got into it until the movie hit. What caught me, and most other people, so much was the acting relationship between Mulder (Duchovney) and Scully (Anderson). (Rumors abound that the relationship got more heated in real life behind-the-scenes).

I just wanted to comment on a statement another reviewer made about the actors. Any TRUE fan loved Duchovney and Anderson. Even the fact that she remembered the stand-in's names (Patrick and Gish) was an outragious insult to any real X-Phile's standing. The reason why FOX went back to the originals was that an outstanding majority of people tuned-out after they heard of the replacements coming back for another season (including me).

Basically, if you don't like David and Gillian, you don't like the X-Files.

However, I do agree with cutting the whole UFO/alien takeover thing. It could've been a better show with maybe a couple of abduction episodes, with Mulder's drive coming from having his own sister taken away (as described in the final episode), but it killed the show to have it be the main focus of so many, many episodes.
