Storyline

Near a backwoods Ontario small town, a young alien, on vacation, crashes in his ship. Disoriented, this confused young extraterrestrial is captured by a young boy who, after naming him Phil, introduces him to the stupor of hard liquor before the boy's hick father throws him out. Roaring drunk and bunking with a friendly talking beaver, Phil eventually wanders into a bar where his new addiction traps him even while he wants to go home. Meanwhile, a secret US black ops organization activates a drunken field agent to find the alien. However, while he searches, Phil's easily manipulated personality leads him down paths that will profoundly affect his new native friends. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

The humor is mostly Canadian, the movie is mostly good.
23 June 2006 | by stormrustonSee all my reviews

I saw a preview for this movie, and it looked hilarious. It was not, but it was good, slightly sweet, fairly funny, and worth watching.

This is a quirky Canadian film, so if you do not understand or like Canadian humor, then you likely will not like this film. (Canadian humor is 50% Monty Python, 10% American slapstick and 40% self mocking).

The "special effects".... I am stretching that word to its limits... are fine for the style of movie.

The acting is very strong and really fun to watch, not a single weak link.

The scrip Idea is fun, the writing,not brilliant, but amusing, and the cast pull it off well.

I recommend this comedy for some feel good light laughs.
