Tries to capture that 'Ghostbusters' vibe and succeeds in mixing comedy with special effects, but it just could've been funnier.

There are some interesting creature effects here, but the plot is weak and the comedy is over-played. Not many laughs, but some watchable visuals.

Some decent alien designs, but the casting wasn't that good, the story wasn't that good and the comedy wasn't that good either. I would only recommend this if you're a big Duchovny fan or if it's really late and there's nothing else on.

Ghostbusters if done by Farrelly Brothers.

Ivan Reitman makes a desperate attempt to catch lightning in a bottle a second time around in this mediocre sci-fi-comedy which is trying very hard to be Ghostbusters, but with aliens. Yeah, Men in Black already beat you to it and it was far funnier.
The alien creatures all look bizarre and appropriately extraterrestrial. The cgi is cartoonishly dated but maybe, given that this is a comedy, that was the idea. It's too bad that after a few cool scenes with some weird monsters, by the end the final 'boss' alien is an unimaginative blob which I kid you not is defeated by a deadly enema.
The human characters all seem game for the goofiness but instead of the naturalistic feel that again, Ghostbusters and to a lesser extent Men in Black had, it comes across as too hammy and mugging for the ...

"Evolution" by Yojimbo

A meteorite crashes in the Arizona desert where two high school science teachers find an alien life form that is reproducing and evolving at an exponential rate. With Ivan Reitman at the helm and a familiar recipe of comedy and special effects, Evolution is clearly an attempt to be "Alienbusters". This is an idea that clearly has potential but the script which is full of throwaway jokes that often come across as sexist, juvenile or just inane is the main culprit as to why it fails to hit the mark. David Duchovny is easily the best thing about Evolution and his easygoing charisma carries the entire film, but Julianne Moore struggles as the condescendingly underwritten love interest and Seann William Scott is as irritating as always; in fact his presence is an indication as to jus...
