Storyline

Some aliens, who travel from planet to planet to see what kind of species inhabit them, come to Earth. And if humans are, according to their standards, decent, they are welcomed to be their friend. And if not the planet is destroyed. To find out, they choose one inhabitant and give that person the power to do whatever he/she wants. And they choose Neil Clarke, a teacher who teaches the special kids. He is constantly being berated by the headmaster and is attracted to his neighbor, Catherine, but doesn't have the guts to approach her. But now he can do anything he wants but has to be careful.

Trivia

In the last scene of the film, Grant, having been turned into a Corgi, says to Dennis the dog (who is showing romantic interest in him), "I'm a man!", to which Dennis replies, "Nobody's perfect". This alludes to the final scene of the 1959 classic, "Some Like It Hot", in which Jack Lemmon and Joe E. Brown speak the exact same lines. See more »

Goofs

The human skeleton that lands at the feet of the headmaster after coming to life and jumping through the window is obviously not the same one that was used in the classroom scene. When the headmaster holds it the joints are obviously molded, and it appears to have no weight. It is obviously a lightweight plastic model. See more »

A simple, silly, but funny and enjoyable family movie.
4 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

What should I start with ? Oh, yes, I don't really get the mediocre score and reviews for this movie. Yeah, it's not another Holymollywood show (thank heavens!), it's not amazing in any way, but it does great at being a simple, enjoyable and funny movie to watch with your family. Both Simon Pegg and Kate are lovely to watch here.

You can just sit, relax and have a fun time. It clearly doesn't try to be smart or serious, people should understand this. There's also a tiny but nice message in it, that once understood, makes a better image of it all. If you enjoyed "Hector and the search for happiness", you should give this one a try. We need more movies like this!
