Editor's Note
The comic story of an alien, H-1449-6 (Shandling, THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW), sent to Earth to impregnate a human woman as part of a fiendish plot to conquer the Universe. Assuming the identity of Harold Anderson, he attempts to blend into human society (Phoenix, AZ to be exact) and begin his search for a mate. However, coming from a planet with no women and armed with a handful of inept pick-up lines and an automated reproductive unit (which emits a loud hum at the slightest titillation), he's rather ill equipped for the task at hand. But with the assistance of a philandering co-worker (Kinnear, AS GOOD AS IT GETS), Harold sets his sights on the beautiful, slightly flaky real-estate agent Susan Hart (Bening, AMERICAN BEAUTY), and sparks begin to fly in this hilarious battle of the sexes from the director of THE GRADUATE.

Entertainment Weekly
"...[Shandling] keeps the tone light and wry....[Bening is] lovable..." -- Rating:B 03/10/2000 p.47

"...Quite funny..." -- 3 out of 5 stars - A Satisfying Rental 08/01/2000 p.87

USA Today
"...[The] droll humor is easy to take....Nichols, as always, attracted a lot of talent..." 07/21/2000 p.7E

Sight and Sound
"...Shandling himself delivers an astute line in whimsy as the perennially befuddled alien..." 03/01/2001 p.66

Boxoffice Magazine 6 of 10
...What Planet Are You From? is consistently, if not ingeniously, funny in pointing out how "alien" men and women appear to each other, regardless of the galaxy of origin... Shandling and Annette Bening as Harold's incubator-turned-love interest are likable as two people (human or not) striving for happiness without having any idea as to how to go about achieving it, on this world or the next. - Christine James
