Clearly, this is an adult version of the basic E.T. story. One has Joe, a Sci-Fi nerd, who with his friend Murph do a program over the internet. Joe is to be married to Susan, who is a real control freak over Joe. As the movie goes along, it becomes very easy to truly detest Susan, who is extremely self absorbed with herself, and wants to totally control Joe. Under her influence, Joe is totally whipped.
There is a flash of light during a storm, and an alien is transported to Joe’s backyard. The alien has claws, but in seeing a poster of a film star transforms itself into that person. Joe is focused on trying to get her home, and also staying true to Susan.
It is a comedy, with really two moving parts. Susan is with her girlfriends on a bachelorette night out, and Joe is trying to get Blair (alien) home.
Low budget, simple camera work, and really a minimalist plot and they get quite a bit out of it. Joe’s friends seem genuine, and Susan’s seems to be taken along by Susan, even if they don’t agree.
