Movie Summary

Doug Miles
Don't Ask, Don't Tell is a 2001 science-fiction spoof directed by Doug Miles. The film is the 1954 Killers from Space movie which has been redubbed with new dialogue and had new scenes added to create a different story. In the film, Dr. Fartin (Erik Frandsen) is part of a military operation that is trying to rid the world of homosexuals. The plan is to lure all gay people to one location and then drop a bomb on them in hopes of erasing homosexuality. The plan is foiled when aliens force the plane to crash. The aliens are from the planet Uranus, an all gay planet, and they brainwash Dr. Fartin in order to obtain classified military information. When the doctor returns to the military base, he has no memory of the incident with the aliens or how he survived the crash. However, when he arrives his co-workers, friends and his wife are stunned at his change in personality. What do the aliens want to do with the classified information and what has happened to Dr. Fartin's personality?moreless
