Amanda Patterson, an employee at an upscale clothing store, is leading a relatively lonely and unremarkable life. All this changes when an alien that's been held in a secret military installation escapes by taking over the body of one of the base employees. Amanda finds the fugitive alien and decides to help him hide from the government agents chasing him, a seemingly easy task, as the alien must change host bodies every few days. Will she be able to help her new companion make a clean getaway? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

User Reviews

Lowbrow but engaging late-night entertainment
22 February 2002 | by aromatic-2See all my reviews

Nicole Eggert is always believable in her role, and she makes us have fun watching this imaginative, if silly, low-budget quasi-erotic comedy. Michael Dorn alone is worth the 90-minute investment. Lots of inside jokes and goofy and quirky situations to make the time pass quickly. In short, Amanda and the Alien has no artistic merit whatsoever, but as a humorous time-passer, I give it an A.
