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.

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
