Avoid to watch it.
9 February 2007 | by fduenasSee all my reviews

I felt very disappointed when I watch this movie.

I read the book time ago, and enjoyed it... it was a humorous point of view for an alien invasion.

But this movie is an insult to F. Brown (good luck for him to be dead since 1972).

There is nothing good in this movie, I have a wide humor sense and this movie could not get a smile from me.

The adaptation was awful, there are not words for such crime.

And the acting... God! Is too poor...

A bad bad movie.

Period.
