Elevator Pitch A couple of geeks are on a trip round the “alien sites” in America in an RV after going to Comicon, when they come across a real alien. They are persuaded to help him in his efforts to leave earth and, chased by federal agents, lurch from crisis to crisis across the empty heartland of the USA.
Content A real lot of swearing in a fun way, lots of visual jokes, some car crashes and one very big explosion. The imdb content advisory says that some Christians may find the film offensive.
A View This was Simon Pegg’s first venture into big money movies and he and Frost make a good job of it. It is lighthearted fun and worth your time.
