What Planet Are You From? [DVD] [English] [2000]

Mike Nichols' comedic sci-fi battle of the sexes comes to DVD with two different transfers. The widescreen anamorphic 1.85:1 image is preferable to the standard full-frame 1.33:1 image. English soundtracks are available in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles may also be accessed. Extra features include a "making of" featurette, theatrical trailers, cast and crew bios, production notes, and an isolated track for the music score. A bit of a disappointment at the box office, the film's subtle charms come across better on the small screen.

What Planet Are You From?
Garry Shandling makes his big-screen debut as a leading man in this sci-fi romantic comedy. Harold (Shandling) is an alien from another galaxy sent to Earth on a vital mission: in order to ensure that his civilization will prevail, Harold must impregnate an Earth woman. But he discovers that this is more easily said than done, as he quickly gets a crash course in the arcane rituals of the human courtship process. What's worse, just when Harold thinks he's making progress in Earthbound seduction, he discovers that the males of his planet don't physically interface properly with women on Earth, so he is issued a variety of bizarre gadgets to complete his assignment. Mike Nichols directed What Planet Are You From?, which also features a top-notch supporting cast, including Annette Bening, John Goodman, Ben Kingsley, and Camryn Manheim. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
