This is the perfect movie to show to your children. My 3rd grade teacher brought this movie to school and let the class watch it at the end of the school year. This movie was funny and full of Love. It may be old but it will still teach young eyes a great lesson.

I must have seen this movie a million times. When I first saw it was back in the 8o's, and then I had the chance of seeing its second part "Why did you Pick On Me?". That one was hilarious too, and involved a group of aliens who were trying to kidnap the "satellite kid". I wonder why they did not reissue that movie too.

I remember this movie from when I was a small child, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was great to watch it again as an adult, and even though it is quite clearly dubbed, as the original was in Italian, its still entertaining, and a great kids film. Was lovely to watch it again after all these years.

Format: DVD
This movie was filmed outside of Atlanta Georgia - partially at the Six Flags and partially at Stone Mountain. Filmed in English with a number of Italian actors including the lead - Bud. The film probably had the voices looped in English after the fact. Although everyone appears to be speaking English.

It's written and filmed by an Italian crew and has a lower production level then the lower budget films Disney made in the 70s. But it's a much more enjoyable and then imaginative then those films - as the story and character parts are written, with so many funny moments, good natured jokes, family friendly feel, unpretentious, and with two very charismatic and likable leads - that you just can't help but love the little film for what it is.

The simple story is about the relationship between a big burley understated Georgian Sheriff and a tiny, temperamental, humanish but well meaning Extraterrestrial. Combine ET with Smokey And The Bandit.

It appears that the two leads hit it off off-screen because there is no way to fake the chemistry that comes through between the two on-screen.

This film shows what can be done with little money if you have a film making crew that really cares. The only complaint is - as usual for these low budget commercial films - the print and sound is not pristine. I'm giving the film four stars because the film makers did what they set out to do - they produced a family friendly, funny, unpretentious little film - for very little money. Id give it an extra star for a perfect print and sound.

The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid is a little commercial film - but it still a lost gem and deserves to be seen more widely.
