(at around 4 mins) When Gary Shoefield first steps outside his flat in Hackney this is #17 Beck Rd, Hackney, London. It still has the same color door, visible in Google Streetview. See more »
In one scene, Harvey is seen playing a video game on the Nintendo Entertainment System, indicated by the fact that he is using an NES Zapper. When we see the game (which was made up for the movie), the game's graphics do not match up with the 8-bit limitations of the NES. 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.
