When the Cassidy family finds a red leather clad man passed out on their living room floor, they assume he's an alien. Zonad is more than happy to oblige.

Storyline

In the small Irish town of Ballymoran, the Cassidy family finds a red leather clad man passed out on their living room floor. The logical conclusion that they come to is that he must be an alien. When the alcoholic rehab escapee awakens, he continues the ruse and passes himself off as Zonad, an alien who has landed on their planet. Life is grand for Zonad as he becomes an instant celebrity who gets free beer, a nice house, and lots and lots of women throwing themselves at him. But when a town resident becomes suspicious and fellow rehab-escapee-turned-alien, Bonad, shows up, Zonad may not be able to continue living the charmed life. Written by napierslogs

Aliens know their way around an Irish town well
27 February 2011 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Zonad is probably an alien. What other explanation could there be for finding a red, leather-clad man passed out on your living room floor? So the charade begins. The ruse is obvious to us of course because everything about Zonad is just plain stupid, and funny.

This film finds an hilarious way to tackle naiveté vs. experience, alcoholism vs. sobriety, and mankind vs extraterrestrials. All the characters had such amusing, naive character traits, that it is more fun to accept Zonad than not. It was surprising how easy it was for made up aliens to get laid, but such is the way of life in Ballymoran, Ireland.

If you enter this town, you will need to fall for the sexual and musical charms of Zonad and his fellow alien, Bonad, otherwise you will find yourself on the outside of the city limits with no way back in. "Zonad" is recommended for those that like the quirky charms of small Irish towns mixed with the alcohol-induced and sexually-laced jokes for American audiences but written with the smart and adept skill of small, independent filmmakers.
