The movie also delivers some B-movie elements, like its last 15 minutes, which just screamed THE BLOB and films of that sort. A little blue-screen action was also a little obvious. It's the kind of movie that you will most likely enjoy while watching and then completely forget about an hour after you leave the theater. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just an observation. It will definitely not crack the pop-culture barometer as GHOSTBUSTERS did all those years ago, but you can certainly do worse with other films playing out there right now (now is that a solid recommendation or what?!? :) The film's also got some pretty neat "boo" scare moments and even a shot of Duchovny's ass (God knows that I've been waiting years for that!). In the end, I guess that I was expecting a "meatier" script with bigger laughs, more action and more moments of suspense, but ended up with something a little less ambitious. This is a simple movie, with sci-fi and comedic elements mixed within a little story and great performances. Not the best movie that you'll see this year, but certainly not the worst. Wow...I'm really "selling" this one, eh? Sheesh...what can I say, the film was somewhat entertaining while I was there, but not all that memorable looking back. In others words, it's a toss-up boys and girls...!
