Pretty darn disappointing
26 December 2006 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Kelly, the President's daughter, is dismayed that a Los Angeles homeless shelter may be closing. She wants to help it remain open so she arranges a way for herself to sneak away from the Secret Service. Trouble is, on the streets of LA, she is recognized and kidnapped, along with a homeless young teen. They try to escape, time and time again but are always thwarted. Kelly insists she has an alien "uncle" who can rescue them. Just what is taking this green-faced angel so long? This was one poor, poor movie, despite the cute cover. Most of it is just chase, escape, chase again. The alien does not even enter the picture until late in the fourth quarter. The young girl playing Kelly does not really do a bad job and the rest of the cast is adequate. It is the writing and story that is just abysmal, along with the production values. Perhaps you have a child who would rather sit in front of the tube than do anything else in life. If so, you might want to experiment with him or her and find out just how long they can endure this mess. Otherwise, there is no earthly reason to see My Uncle is an Alien.
