Wallace Shawn's character's full name is Elliot Coleye, which was purposely made to sound like "E-coli". See more »
[11:16]Uncle Martin says people of earth (earlings AKA terrans) are fortunate to have so much water as he's looking at the ocean water. He knows so much about earth, he should have known that ocean water is useless. Santa Barbara did build a water desalination plant in the early 1990's but was never turned on. See more »
When I was a kid in the 50's and 60's anything connected with Disney was by definition great. What happened? They are able to get any actors and actresses they want, the best of their time. But somehow Disney manages to screw things up in spite of their abundant resources.
Disney can afford the best writers, the best producers and directors, but still...they screw things up! This movie is crap. The sad thing is that I suspect Disney in their arrogance does not even know when a movie is good or bad.
It is only due to the talent of the actors that I can even give it a 3 of 10.
