    Extraterrestrial can be forgiven the tangents into melodrama due to Vigalondo's seamless ability to navigate those soapy waters.

    In almost every respect, Extraterrestrial is an exceptional and traditional romantic comedy. It just happens to be set during an alien invasion.

    Extraterrestrial is a comedy dropped agreeably into an alien invasion - well, maybe not invasion. The spaceship just sits there.

    Results are offbeat and amusing, but also a bit thin as the whole essentially amounts to one long shaggy-dog joke.

    On the whole, Extraterrestrial is slight, filled with lots of bark but little bite.

    There's a solid framework in place here for a fun, original twist on a conventional science-fiction premise, but aside from the occasional quirky touch - Vigalondo fails to fill that frame with a picture worthy of it.

    Alien invasion is just an excuse for romantic farce in Extraterrestrial, a tiresome roundelay of lies, lust and leaping paranoia.
