This retread of the semi-successful '60s TV sitcom adds to the growing pile of evidence that the words "original" and "thought" are not used in the same sentence in Hollywood anymore. Tim (Daniels) is a TV producer cajoled into hiding his "Uncle Martin." Martin (Lloyd) is actually an alien whose spaceship has crashed, and he's on the run from a government agency and the prying press. Tim must throw racy reporter Hurley off the trail as well, although he has a crush on her. Numerous animated and computer morphed sight gags, including a horny wisecracking spacesuit named Zoot (who brings new meaning to the term "skirt chasing"), take the place of a plot. Sets new standards for mediocrity, but the kiddies might enjoy it.
