This provacative FOX Network "prime time" television special investigates the purported "Alien Autopsy" footage that was allegedly filmed by the United States military after the legendary UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
Paolo Cherchi Usai,

When Ray is delivering the pirated video tapes to his friend, in the background shots there is a Citroen Xsara Picasso quite visible in the scene. This is a car that was launched in 2000 so wouldn't have been on the streets of London in 1995. See more »
After the credits the real Gary tells the camera that Ray would sell anything if he felt it would turn a profit, to which a smiling Ray replies that that's "not entirely true" and that it's "most unfair". See more »
I went to the premiere last night and wasn't sure what to expect - my initial thoughts were that Ant and Dec would fizzle out in a medium to which they don't fit. I was pleasantly surprised, however.
Overall, Alien Autopsy is a very funny, whimsical film. The script is patchy in places - subplots get twisted and don't really tie together satisfactorily in the end - but this is made up by the pleasure (and it really is a genuine pleasure) to see Ant and Dec putting in strong performances in the lead roles. This is the sort of film that the critics would be sharpening their knives for. I think those knives can be put back in the drawer.
Make no mistake: this isn't your traditional British comedy. The cameos fit perfectly into the plot and everyone has a purpose. There are no big faces included for the sake of it. Somehow, it works.
This is an enjoyable film and good family entertainment. It won't win any awards, but it's harmless, clean fun - and very good harmless clean fun at that.
