what on earth?
19 July 2002 | by hjc101189See all my reviews

I have no idea what convinced the makers of this movie to make it, but this was the strangest, most discusting, most bizarre movie i have ever seen. The idea of a kid being an alien and not knowing it, and then sending a message to space for them to come get him, strikes me as odd. The acting was poor, and the script sounded like it had been written by a ten year old. On a scale of 1 to 10 i give it a 2.
