Dr. Steve Mills (Dan Aykroyd), a widowed astronomer, transmits a radar signal that attracts the attention of aliens who send Celeste (Kim Basinger) to the Earth to learn the composition of the radar beam. A standard formula comedy, MY STEPMOTHER IS AN ALIEN tries to emulate popular

alien-on-Earth films like STARMAN. Had it actually been told from the perspective of the scientist's daughter, as the title suggests, it might have been more appealing, but instead a predictable, amateurish script shifts the focus elsewhere. The script also contains a number of logical

inconsistencies and suffers from too many stock characters: the innocently inquisitive alien, the befuddled scientist, his lecherous brother, and his self-serving boss, none of whom develops during the course of the story.
