A spaceship shaped like a human lands face first on Liberty Island. Its crew (of tiny, intelligent, and unemotional beings) is looking for an orb sent from its planet to extract the oceans' salt, which will ruin Earth. The orb is in the possession of Josh, the fifth-grade son of a single mom whose car strikes the ambulatory alien spaceship and cripples its power supply. The crew has 48 hours to recover the orb, throw it in the Atlantic, and leave Earth. Over the course of two days, the ship's crew experiences chaos and emotion in New York. Do Earth's giants - Josh and his mom - have anything to teach these brainy aliens? Meanwhile, mutiny is afoot and the cops are closing in.Written by

When the captain is back and taking over the ship, the screen shows spelling error twice, first "System Overide Access" and second "System Overide Enabled". However, the correct spelling is "Override" with two R's. See more »
Department of Defense worker:
Dude, dude...no, I was like..."Yes, we *do* have nuclear missiles", and he was all like "No, you don't", and I was all like "Yes, we do." "Whatever." And I was like "Well, what part of 'whatever' do you not get?"

Great movie and a great story for my kids with a positive message
I have had this movie a while and watched it with my two son's, twice in two days. It is hilarious for both me and my two boys. The story line is very interesting and fun to watch the "dave" ship go about their mission. We had some great family time with this movie and is now a personal cult classic in my home! Not sure what else to write but for a family movie you cannot go wrong. I tried to find a Eddie Murphy fan page to share my review but it seems you have to pay money with all the so called fan pages on the net. Anyway, thanks to the writers, cast and crew for a great movie!! 'd love to get a autographed photo of Eddie Murphy for my two boys, they are young and think he is hilarious! Although they only know him as "Dave" haha.
