Trivia

The film director Melik is offered a large plate of biscuits (by Nan), and soon after, at 35min 23secs he is seen holding the camera with what looks like a Jammie Doger in his mouth. See more »

Goofs

When the Alien Autopsy creators are on the couch watching the August 28, 1995 broadcast of their film with Jonathan Frakes narration, the TV is clearly a widescreen tube (the video is stretched to fill the screen). Widescreen TVs were not available in the UK at that time. See more »

[Nervous tone]

Unanswered questions....Going into the unknown
8 April 2006 | by snottyscotty150See all my reviews

OK maybe this film doesn't do that, and your probably reading the reviews of this film and thinking "this film looks rubbish". OK lets look at the facts, it's got Ant and Dec in it OK thats not that good, it's not funny, OK thats not good either but now lets look at the film from another angle.

The film is basically about the events of on May the 5th 1995 most people probably remember this as the day that man found out he was not alone in the universe, it tells the story of the two people that "found" the footage of the Alien Autopsy but the film says that it was all fake. The one thing that makes me mad about all the reviews is this people say the acting is "wooden" or it's "unfunny" well thats not the idea of the film...and people who say that are missing the point.

There are some funny parts to the film but it doesn't say "the no. 1 smash hit comedy of the year" because thats not what it's trying to be, it's meant to tell us the truth about what happened to two average blokes who tried to make some money. If you go into this film thinking it's going to be funny you wont like it....that i promise you, people say that the film went on for ages and ages...personally i was surprised it ended as quick as it did, at only 95 minutes it's not long enough, in my opinion.

I would tell you to go and see this film but most of you wont listen because people have dragged this film into the ground, the film does have more potential and yes it could have not been so normal in places but thats what the film is about two people trying to make some money.

It's just a normal film, but the cleaver thing that it does do is make you think, Was this actually real? or Was that the way that it happened? it tells you a story and you believe it but still question if it's true...and if anything it's worth seeing for that.
