'We come in peace' is not what those green men from Mars mean when they invade our planet, armed with irresistible weapons and a cruel sense of humor. This star studded cast must play victim to the alien’s fun and games in this comedy homage to science fiction films of the '50s and '60s.

Richard Schickel Perhaps they don't create quite enough deeply funny earthlings to go around, but a thoroughly meanspirited big-budget movie is always a treasurable rarity.
Todd McCarthy oaded with wit, nifty little ideas and an extraordinary sense of design, but its allure is of quite a particular nature, much closer to that of Ed Wood than of Burton's earlier, and far more commercially successful, works.
Derek Adams Unfortunately, it's not very good.
Janet Maslin Just a parade of scattershot gags, more often weird than funny and most often just flat.
Desson Thomson Only moderately amusing.
Rita Kempley Sadly empty exercise.
Scott Rosenberg A throwaway piece of pop ephemera, like a '90s Casino Royale, momentarily arresting and soon forgotten.
