"My stepmother is a no-talent skank in a bad dress."
Here was a smart idea. The world had been waiting for a movie about an unlucky in love weirdo who falls in love with an alien who looks like Kim Basinger. That's comedy genius for ya. But what's the twist in this tale? There ain't one, boysan.How could this movie suck as much as it does? It's got Seth Green for starters, so it should get points there. Jon Lovitz is on board... mmm potential points but not a big winner most days.
Juliette Lewis, Harry Shearer, come on, there was potential here.
But then came Aykroyd. Holy Mother of Fuck, is this man a chump. I've said it before, but who picks this guy's scripts, Steven Hawkins' helper monkey? This is yet another example of a movie that should not only have never been made, but should not ever have been bumped up a few levels on the audience expectation scale by Dan Aykroyd's presence.
I'm sure he means well. And he does so many movies that, just occasionally, he lucks out and gets a Grosse Point Blank or a Blues Brothers, but then he completely shames himself with a Celtic Pride or a Blues Brothers 2000. No, not completely shames himself, comepletely shames his fans. HE clearly has no shame.
So an alien comes to earth, decides she should marry bumbling Aykroyd, refuses to have sex with him, has to deal with the kids and the inevitable "I think something's odd with mom" situations. She gets drunk, she gets into zany antics, eventually has sex (oh, like it's a stunning plot point), Aykroyd loses hs rep.Do you need to know any more than that? Seriously, like, is this film really on your list of things to see? Because I could recommend Election or The Professional or Lawn Dogs. Go find a rental outlet that stocks Bandwagon, American Beer or The Size Of Watermelons. Just AVOID this film.
