Overview

Mike Nichols' comedic sci-fi battle of the sexes comes to DVD with two different transfers. The widescreen anamorphic 1.85:1 image is preferable to the standard full-frame 1.33:1 image. English soundtracks are available in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles may also be accessed. Extra features include a "making of" featurette, theatrical trailers, cast and crew bios, production notes, and an isolated track for the music score. A bit of a disappointment at the box office, the film's subtle charms come across better on the small screen.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The vagaries of human courtship and heterosexual relationships are deftly spoofed in What Planet Are You From? -- a wryly amusing vehicle for standup comic and TV star Garry Shandling. He's whimsically cast as the last hope of a male-dominated alien civilization, dispatched to Earth for mating with a compatible human female, thus propagating his dying species. Despite his supposedly exhaustive indoctrination on dating rituals, Garry strikes out repeatedly before meeting eccentric Annette Bening, who just might be the perfect woman. Or not. Shandling's script relies heavily on shopworn fish-out-of-water gags and comic misinterpretation of slang expressions. And his amorous alien displays the same seeming lack of emotion and general cluelessness that women often attribute to men -- which, of course, is how his otherworldly origin escapes detection. But under the skilled direction of Mike Nichols (Primary Colors), Shandling and his talented supporting cast bring a feather-light touch to this delightful comedy of manners.
