About the Movie
Pete (Mike Myers) is a streetwise ex-junkie running from the mob. After his two best friends die, he feels obligated to help raise their three kids who now live with their grandmother (Brenda Fricker). When a meteorite crashes into the kids’ backyard, they believe that it was sent by their parents and go to dangerous lengths to recover it from the wealthy scientist who carted it away. Their lives converge in this funny, thrilling and bittersweet film which teaches us that sometimes the most precious things in life can be found in your own backyard.
I'll understand for others that it ought to be strange so see Mike Myers in a dramatic film but that's what caught my attention of this movie. The plot was very understandable, though a few actors had a few quircks, but overall, it was a good movie.
