Reviews

Rubbish, despite a pretty good cast. 'My Favorite Martian' is an unfunny, wide of the mark 1999 release from Disney. None of the humour got laughs, or mild amusement, out from me - except one scene involving a toilet, which is marginally amusing. It also tries to join the comedy up with heart, especially between Martin and Tim, but it simply doesn't hit. There are moments where I could tell the film wanted me to care for the character(s) but I never did. It's also a surprisingly horny film, with iffy innuendo and even some inappropriate touching in there. If this was an 'American Pie' type of film then it might fit, but it feels very out of place here. Zoot (Wayne Knight) confirms those words, his dumb character is obnoxious. Knight, who is oddly uncredited, is joined by Christopher Lloyd (Martin) and Jeff Daniels (Tim). That should be a great match, but they never really click together in my opinion - a missed opportunity, for sure. Elizabeth Hurley (Brace) and Daryl Hannah (Lizzie) are also involved, though the female characters are pretty pointless - Hurley has a small part in the main plot at one point, at least. It's a no from me. Straight into the bottom ten of Disney live-action, of the ones I've seen up until '99. Perhaps fans of the original television series will enjoy this, but I didn't.
