Unexpectedly witty,enjoyable flick
12 December 2012 | by frankf-10See all my reviews

Drones is a small film well worth watching if you enjoy quirky, well-written, well-acted comedies. Going in, I didn't understand that the sci-fi angle would be so central, but it was nice to see a low budget production that features (more or less convincingly) "aliens" without the need for tons of makeup. And Drones almost as funny as 'What Planet Are You From?' (which also needed little in the way of FX). Angela Bettis, not the typical cute/perky "young thing" one might expect in a role like this, is quite arresting, with a lovely smile and expressive face. I found all the performances to be solid, with a cast of actors who are unfamiliar to me. Good comic performances all around. I also enjoyed the songs playing over the closing credits, including one that listed many aspects of earth life that might befuddle extraterrestrials. The quirky birthday song was also a hoot.
