5 February 2015 | by (Sequim, WA) – See all my reviews

Beware of the Minnie Mouse impersonation that passes off as an actual movie performance! Gaze in shock at the talking alien mimes! Run in terror from the most incomprehensible and convoluted mish-mash of film muck you have ever witnessed! Dare yourself to endure the entire length of this absolute marvel of cinematic trash! Alien from L.A. is an absolute hoot. You will prey to the movie gods for Kathy Ireland to get laryngitis (and remove some of her clothing, as well).

The late great film critic, Roger Ebert, called Tom Cruise's debut performance in director, Ridley Scott's, "Legend" 'a non-performance'. Well, Kathy Ireland is in the running for worst performance by an actor/actress in a movie...EVER! Give her an honorary Razzie for worst performance of all time, and FOR all time. Her dialog is like a mousy, squeaking, pouting, simpering, and sometime-pathetic whimper that will test your mettle, I assure you. It is, in a word, 'unforgettable'. Oh yeah, there's also the actual 'acting'. This woman's role in this turkey will infiltrate your very soul...permanently ;)
