Lots of Fun
17 June 2013 | by kr98664See all my reviews

This was one of those "Never heard of it" gambles that paid off. The musical bits were light-hearted and whimsical. The story was very unique, especially the part about the aliens' reaction to earth music. There was also some subtle social commentary about us earthlings. I especially liked the intermixed fight/dance scene. The second alien stole every one of his scenes. His mannerisms and body language always brought a chuckle.

Although this was a low-budget movie, the overall effect was very professional. I'm going to have to get me a red jumpsuit and bucket helmet. I hope you enjoy this fun little movie as much as my wife and I did.
