This Sundance indie romantic comedy hit and sci-fi B-movie spoof follows the adventures and misadventures of three lesbian space aliens sent to Earth on a mission to save their planet by visiting New York's gay dating scene. Two of the aliens unwittingly fall in love with each other, but the third meets a mild-mannered Earthling while two government agents closely track their romance.
The Special Edition DVD comes packed with extras, including a Behind the Scenes at Sundance webcast, Cast and Crew Commentary, writer/director Madeleine Olnek's short films Hold Up (Official Sundance Selection 2006) and Countertransference (Official Sundance Selection 2009), and more. Also includes closed captions for the hearing impaired.
A hilarious date movie for couples of all orientations. Tongue firmly in cheek, Madeleine Olnek's lesbian sci-fi comedy lovingly spoofs the black-and-white B-movies of yesteryear. Sure to become a staple of festival midnight-movie programs --Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter
In 'Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same,' Madeleine Olnek's witty ode to urban love and shoestring sci-fi, a lonely Manhattanite and an exiled extraterrestrial find inter-species contentment...this enormously likable movie keeps sexual politics on the back burner and the universal search for connection front and center...A clever subplot involving the odd-couple relationship of two government agents - as well as actual news footage of a 2010 UFO scare in Chelsea - cements the lighthearted tone. Ed Wood would have been proud. --Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times
Sweet, funny, clever comedy...'Codependent' could pass as a family film, given the right family. The pic's seat-of-the-pants aesthetic recalls 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' and the interplanetary paranoia of its genre; the odd-couple romance (and a scene near the Queensboro Bridge) suggests Woody Allen's 'Manhattan'; the parallel storyline of two governments agents is a little bit 'X-Files.' But Olnek's sensibility is singular, and the work of the cast -- notably the sweet-faced Haas and the hilariously robotic Ziegler -- make for a movie that seeks, and earns, affection. --John Anderson, Variety
This movie was amazingly imaginative. It fondly spoofed the B movie science fiction movies of the 50s. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Brian Heike
