At the age of 10, Australian-born Andi Gibson had what she describes as a close encounter with a flying saucer. 17 years later, when an airborne extra-terrestrial armada launches a nation-wide assault on Andi s home country and for unspecified reasons, also kidnaps her mother. To add to the debacle, it seems the other nations of the world are far too insulted by their exclusion from the attack to come to Australia s aid. Now it s up to Andi, her hypochondriac brother Elliot, retired boxer cousin Keith and documentary filmmaker friend Cam to stop the attack and rescue Andi s mum. Bloody hell, this is gonna be a long night.
...a fabulous sci-fi comedy that pummels the viewer with an outrageous lunacy and eye-popping digital creations, and a definite cult status. It's a hell of a lot of fun... --fakeshemp.net
Refreshingly funny Australiens shows that it is possible to make a funny cult spoof film even on a low budget. This movie is enough to show that Joe Bauer and Rita Artmann are a creative team to watch in the future. --thebookthefilmthetshirt.co.uk

It bears a 2nd viewing even. Maybe. If I do watch it again, I hope I give it enough time to have gotten out of "recent memory." Say, several months at least, and then it could be 90% of tonight's delights, because this thing's jammed packed with details -- like the necessity of coconut sprinkles to trigger the healing power of "spreadable goodness" for gaping, raw, puked-on, bite wounds.
And by almost every film-critic metric -- this thing's not even a C flick, but this whole crew probably could care less about the viewers' takes on it, and it's that that gives this film its innocence -- they're not embarrassed to be doing the roles, because everyone was carrying a lot of the film and delivered -- the thing drips with sincerity and honesty about what's afoot.
It's this: if this film was a school play, it would be talked about until every person involved or who had been in the audience was long gone. That's the value of this -- it convinces you to forgive all its fakery, because that's exactly what you'd do for your own family if they had, indeed, pulled off this production's 30,000 details. It's just amazing how much "product" they shamelessly offered. Like children trying to pay for something with Monopoly money. It endears.
2nd viewing was wonderful. My review above stands.
7-31-17 3rd viewing delivered it all again. Same review as above. This thing never quits....even the last of the credits.
Keep in mind that this is an alien invasion movie, so there are some mildly icky parts with the occasional exploding alien guts splattering our heroes - but it's in good fun and I think this movie would be fine for pre-teens. This is slumber-party gold guaranteed to bring out plenty of shrieks and yucks, And even the adults will enjoy it.
I honestly cannot understand the people who panned this movie - it's hilarious fun.
I would definitely re-watch and recommend.
