Starman Review

Jeff Bridges plays a language-challenged alien who crash lands on earth in one of John Carpenter's best films -- not that that's saying much. While he drags Karen Allen (whose dead husband he has taken the form of) along on his quest to get back into space (because he can't drive, he needs the girl) while the feds try to hunt him down. What follows is one wacky road trip... but will he make it? In my book, you never bet against the alien (unless, of course, he's a bad alien).
