Commentary by director Jonny Campbell
Top Customer Reviews
The film's popularity in the UK was based on its lead actors, Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly. Critics wondered whether audiences would be able to see the actors as Gary and Ray, rather than their cheeky TV personality selves. Skepticism was also given to whether Ant and Dec had lost their punitive talent for acting, having not played characters other than themselves since the early nineties on a BBC children's drama.
Thankfully, the criticism was proven to be unfounded as Ant and Dec performed spectacularly and believably in their first feature film. Their real life friendship and two decades of working side by side provided the required chemistry between the lead characters, who are best friends in real life.
American audiences unfamiliar with Ant and Dec will not have to worry about conflating their perception of Gary and Ray with knowledge of the actors and will simply be able to enjoy a well-done movie about Ray Santilli and the Roswell UFO footage.
A keen viewer will notice plot holes here and there (most of which are filled in by viewing the deleted scenes... not that that excuses them), but the breaks in plot are not enough to break the tone of the film, which is an oddly suspenseful and frothy ride.
The lighting, coloring and cinematography is reminiscent of Edgar Wright's films as is the dry humor and classic British wit. American audiences will feel at home with the California settings and actors such as Bill Pullman and Harry Dean Stanton.

ALIEN AUTOPSY stars British television's Ant and Dec (Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly) as the eccentric team behind the hoax who hire on a documentary filmmaker to help them retell their amazing tale. Bill Pullman joins them as the doubtful man behind the camera that is slowly drawn into their story along with the disbelieving audience. The only thing that is more incredible than the alien footage, itself, is the duo's crazy journey around the world promoting their 'restored' version of the film, while making hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process. Ant and Dec pull off the roles splendidly by playing it straight and allowing the absurdity of the true events to bring out the humor naturally.Read more ›
ALIEN AUTOPSY is a wild and quirky retelling of the "true facts" regarding the origin of this amazing footage.
When London hustlers and pals Ray (Declan Donnelly) and Gary (Ant McPartlin) discover the footage, they are suddenly thrown into intense media scrutiny and realize they have an even bigger problem on their hands.
Allegedly based on true events, here is the bizarre and frequently hilarious story of the two unlikely lads from London who become icons in UFOism with a discovery of evidence of extraterrestrial life.
Bill Pullman and Harry Dean Stanton join a cast of strange characters in this comic mystery thriller that's out of this world in more ways than one. This is one of best little films I've seen in a long, long time.
The storyline was hilarious. Very well thought-out, and just the sort of thing you'd expect from Ant & Dec. I do wish that the deleted scenes had made it into the film - they made the story make more sense, and they added a different point of view to the story. I'm very excited to watch the film for a third time.
