To save his planet of men, an alien (Garry Shandling) is sent to earth to procreate with a woman. But he's worlds away from understanding the opposite sex. Once on earth, he assumes his human identity as Harold, armed with dating lessons from his home planet, but the only thing he's courting is disaster. As he hits on every female in sight, he runs into one technical difficulty...his "member" buzzes when he's aroused. On top of that, his pick-up lines are bad, his social skills are worse and his mating chances are slim to none. Mix in a suspicious FAA official (John Goodman) who's on his heels, and an underhanded co-worker (Greg Kinnear) who's on his back, Harold's mission seems next to impossible. Until he meets Ms. Right (Annette Bening). Now, an extraterrestrial and a human tie the knot, and unravel the universe. Through it all, Harold's dating game adventures are geared toward one intergalactic goal: scoring.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This movie wants to be sweet and dark at the same time, but it is as distant as a planet's satellite.
Fresh: Bening, even in a formula role like this one, is so lovable she actually makes you believe that she'd melt the resolve of a technocratic space visitor.
Rotten: Thirteen year-old boys would love the film if they could get into this R-rated picture.
Over looked and under rated
This is a good movie with slightly dry over the top and sexual/crude humor. It has a great cast and characters are really funny and well written. There is an actual story that has some depth to it, although not very realistic, it is definitely entertaining and fun to watch the characters interact with each other. If this movies comes out for $5 I would highly recommend it if this movie looks interesting to you..
I love this movie
