This unevenly paced comedy is an amusing parody of monster movies from "Them!" to "Alien."

Visually witty and even marvelous when it comes to depicting the spectacular creatures evolving at a speed previously known only in the Bible.

It's not good, but it's nowhere near as bad as most recent comedies; it has real laughs, but it misses real opportunities.

Instead of scoring belly laughs, there's a run on randy guy banter between Duchovny and Jones.

Evolution devolves to the sight of a colossal alien expelling flatus over Arizona. So that's why this movie stinks. Play that flatulent music, white boy.
