    Quirky, but infinitely more interesting than big-budget Hollywood cousins. show more

    In almost every respect, Extraterrestrial is an exceptional and traditional romantic comedy. It just happens to be set during an alien invasion. show more

    On the whole, Extraterrestrial is slight, filled with lots of bark but little bite. show more

    Extraterrestrial can be forgiven the tangents into melodrama due to Vigalondo's seamless ability to navigate those soapy waters. show more

    Extraterrestrial is a comedy dropped agreeably into an alien invasion - well, maybe not invasion. The spaceship just sits there. show more

    Dennis Harvey Variety

    Results are offbeat and amusing, but also a bit thin as the whole essentially amounts to one long shaggy-dog joke. show more
