Movie Summary

Donald Petrie
Released:
1999
Rating:
PG
Disney's hilarious My Favorite Martian is an intergalactic comedy that crash-lands the classic television series into the nineties! This hilarious adventure begins when an ambitious TV reporter, Tim O'Hara (Jeff Daniels), stumbles upon a Martian (Christopher Lloyd) who has just crashed on Earth! Thinking this is the story of the Millennium, Tim schemes to expose the Martian - who has taken human form as "Uncle Martin." When Tim's efforts are constantly foiled by Uncle Martin's crazy antics, he decides to help the resourceful alien return home. With the government hot on their trail and a spaceship in pieces, can they blast Uncle Martin off in time? Wild special effects create outrageous laughs, including aliens morphing, cars shrinking, objects floating, and Martin's rowdy spacesuit, Zoot. Also starring Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers), Daryl Hannah (Splash), and Ray Walston (from the original "My Favorite Martian" television series), My Favorite Martian will keep kids and parents alike delightfully entertained with its fast-paced action and nonstop laughs!moreless
