Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Benjamin
Released:
1988
Rating:
PG-13

My Stepmother is an Alien is a cult comedy favorite held in high regard by children of the 80s as a fun Saturday afternoon memory. Astronomer Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters, Nothing But Trouble, Spies Like Us, Evolution, Trading Places, Bustin' Loose, Armed and Dangerous) unwittingly puts a planet in danger and they send down one of their own (in the form of Kim Basinger, Batman, Blind Date, Nine and a Half Weeks, LA Confidential). Naturally, the typical fish-out-of-water story starts with Basinger finding she has a thing with sex and of course Aykroyd tries to accommodate her desires. Aykroyd's daughter (a very young Alyson Hannigan, American Pie) is immediately suspicious, as is Aykroyd's brother (Jon Lovitz, The Critic, High School High). But a bond starts between Basinger and Hannigan while Lovitz develops a serious crush on her as well. Will Basinger stay a human and live on Earth or go back to her native planet?
