Performance

This movie really sucked. I mean it sucked on so many levels; the acting, the directing, the effects. If you watch the deleted scenes on this movie you will notice that their deleted scenes are refered to by scenes that were left in the movie. That earns this movie a big fat D-. I would give it an F but I have to admit that I did enjoy the scene where they stick the guy up the aliens butt to shoot Head and Shoulders.

-Ace Reviewer quote

I guess the other reviewers are disappointed by extra goodies that were, or were not, included on the DVD. This is not an expensive disk so I would not expect much, and for that matter, what else could there be? This isn't Lawrence of Arabia! It IS a funny movie with a lot of wit and charm. I think Duchovny is making a statement simply by accepting a role in a movie that takes a silly approach to the notion of an alien species coming to earth, after having taken it all so darn seriously for years in the X files. He's saying: Lighten up! And if you approach this movie with that in mind, you'll have a gas. The rest of the casting is creative and effective, with Orlando Jones working well in comic/dramatic tandem with Duchovny, and the wonderful Julianne Moore taking a comic turn as a klutzy but brainy (and of course, beautiful) scientist. The movie pokes gentle fun at the educational establishment, at the military, at politicians, and just about everybody in between, while keeping viewers involved in a storyline that has enough surprises in it to sustain interest -- even among those who somehow miss the humor and overlook the romantic subplot. If you're expecting Close Encounters of the Third Kind, this is NOT it. If you just want to sit back with a goofy, fun movie that happens to have a strong science-fiction element, and have a bunch of laughs along the way, this is it.

Review for Evolution the DVD

by Prog on 2/13/2002

I felt this was a great parody of The Xfiles. Many people may not like this movie, that is if they don't like Ghostbusters/Stripes and so on. If you ever sit down and listen to the documentary it may bother you (I know it does me) that they keep talking about the outakes which are on the DVD. I have yet to find these outakes. Oh and no trailers, other than those missing its filled with all the basic stuff most dvds today include. I believe if you plan on rating a movie you may want to add a few of the selections you own in that genre. I have Meet the Parents, Ghostbusters and Rush Hour I&II.
