The plot isn't memorable. Don't think it was supposed to be. The outtakes are funny. She had good timing. And she knew how to play to the camera. The truth is, when she was on the screen, you have problems remembering anyone else is in the shot. If you like Anna, go for it. If she isn't your cup of tea, don't bother. You won't find much in it as far as plot. But it's Anna.
My expectations were not high but I thought it might be some silly b-movie fun, with some satire as a bonus.
Turns out it's just a painfully poor attempt at the above mentioned.
In this case the problem is the writing.
All the low-budget elements (including the acting) could have served as elements of satire, but without competent writing, it all just comes together poorly.
I you want to be purposely stupid, a degree of cleverness is required.
"Illegal Aliens" ends up having all the panache of a porno trying to be funny - without the sex or nudity.
As I said in the review title - no entertainment value.
This was Anna Nicole Smith's last film, and it is sad that its posthumous release is part of her legacy. At the outset I should say that while I like comedy and I like campy B-movies, this film is not so bad it's good; it's so bad it's...well, really, really bad.

Chyna makes William Shatner look like Sir John Gielgud in comparison. Rex covets a "Mega-Gravitron" with which she wants to draw the moon into the earth, causing a collision. There are many spoofs of other films and television shows (please note especially the homage to James Doohan, "Star Trek's" Scotty in the "Jeffries Tube" scene) as well as occasionally amusing original ideas ("The old fork in the microwave trick. I should have known.")
Unfortunately, the film features enormous quantities of flatulence and bathroom jokes (in the commentary the director and crew are very pleased with Anna Nicole's extended bathroom break, the bleakest scene in this sulfurous wilderness). I was not fond of the "behind the scenes" bits in which the director and crew were revealed a couple of times. I likewise never needed to hear David Giancola say "Get those cheeks tight....Read more ›

Kind of mockumentary with a lot of silly lines. Without doubt, this is the skinniest Anna Nicole Smith that I have ever seen.Published 4 months ago by richardbalmaceda
Well yeah, it was supposed to be bad, and it succeeded. I watched another Anna Nicole documentary that led me to make the major investment of $.01 plus $3.99 S&H. Read morePublished 6 months ago by R. Duval
Real camp humor. I just wanted to see Joanie Laurer but she plays a ridiculous part even considering it is a third rate comedy.Published 18 months ago by David S
