This quirky science fiction comedy is a characteristic feature by iconoclastic director Tim Burton. The storyline affectionately harkens back to the deadpan sincerity of ‘50s and ’60s sci-fi films. Flyin saucers have been reliably seen over the capitals of the world, and people all over the globe await with bated breath to see what will transpire. Among those waiting is the President of the United States (Jack Nicholson), who is assured by his science advisor (Pierce Brosnan) that the coming aliens are utterly peaceful. This advice is hotly contested by the military (led by Rod Steiger), who advises the President to annihilate them. When the aliens land, they are seen to be green, garish and very cheerful. But appearance prove deceiving when the “friendly aliens abruptly disintegrate the entire U.S. Congress. Hollywood notables appear in vast quantities, roles, and sub plots of all sizes in this zany feature.
