It Goes Nowhere
21 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some kids develop a TV antenna that picks up broadcast from all over the world. When it is jostled, the kids are able to get a broadcast from a planet, seeing things that were done ten years ago (due to the light distance). The odd thing is that these ridiculous looking aliens have received broadcasts from earth and are mimicking them. They do "I Love Lucy," "Milton Berle," "The Honeymooners," and so on. This is what drives their race. Wouldn't you know it, three of these guys just happen to have taken an interstellar trip to Earth and the kids find them. They eat hamburgers, watch a vaudeville show, and share time together. There is no suspense. There is no antagonist. Other than the portrayal of these guys, there is really nothing to hold our attention. Even the aliens are so doggone uninteresting and poorly constructed. I don't wish to rain on anyone's parade, but I never got involved in this one.
