Monk gets punk'd
6 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Returning from a wedding with Natalie, Monk sees a UFO on the outskirts of a small town. Their car breaks down and requires extensive repairs, so Monk decides to go and talk to the local sheriff about what he saw. At the same time, a prominent resident has disappeared, and when her mutilated body turns up, the sheriff asks for Monk's help. While all this is going on, a bunch of UFO nuts turn up in town, making everyone's life miserable and declaring that Monk must be an alien. He says very plainly that he is not, which made me think of the fact that Shalhoub played an alien in the two MEN IN BLACK flicks. Shalhoub has a funny bit wandering through the dusty, dry back country, in what amounts to a send-up of every movie ever made that features a man lost in the desert. Daniel Stern guest-stars as the sheriff.
