The novel special effects are the point of this energetic but barely funny comedy based on the 60s TV series. Jeff Daniels plays host to Christopher Lloyd, a visitor from another planet who's trying to pass for human so he can avoid becoming the subject of an autopsy and get back home. As Daniels helps his “Uncle Martin” conceal and attempt to repair his spaceship, the martian shows him what lovably pathetic creatures humans are, in part by becoming addicted to sugar. Donald Petrie directed Sherri Stoner and Deanna Oliver's screenplay; with Daryl Hannah, Elizabeth Hurley, and Wallace Shawn.
