What Planet Are You From? (2000)

Film details


Comedy. An alien from another planet, more advanced than Earth, is ordered to impregnate a human being with the intention that his planet will eventually take over our own. With this in mind, he takes the name of Harold Anderson, begins a job at a bank and does his best to impress any woman he meets, but has no luck due to his overly forceful attitude and lack of restraint. When he is taken by a work colleague to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in search of the opposite sex, he meets Susan, a lonely woman of around forty, and the couple eventually marry in Las Vegas. Susan becomes pregnant, and 'Harold' finds his feelings have changed towards the human race - to the annoyance of his alien commander.
