K-PAX (2001) Prot (Kevin Spacey) is patient at a mental hospital. Prot claims that he is from a faraway planet called K-PAX. As his psychiatrist (Jeff Bridges) tries to help him, the mystery of Prot grows deeper, and the psychiatrist begins thinking that just maybe his patient might not be crazy. While the cast in this film is excellent, it’s Kevin Spacey who makes this film so gripping to watch. He makes you hope and possibly believe that Prot is from another planet. This is a fascinating film with an ending that will have you thinking about this movie for days.

The writers somehow managed to cram every "alien in human form" cliche' in the book, and I really don't think that there are too many movies on that subject. When Kevin Spacey says "You humans" it's very irritating. However, if I have to say one good thing about this movie, the twist at the end wasn't half bad.

This is a pretty standard doctor-patient story, which has been done much better in other films. However, the strong acting from Spacey and Bridges at least anchors the film and makes it entertaining and, at times, touching.
