Storyline Heading
Sent to Earth on a mission to impregnate a woman and have a child, he quickly learns that traveling halfway across the universe was the easy part. As Harold tries his inept hand at dating, he falls victim to the courting and mating anxieties that plague all earthlings. It soon becomes clear in this bawdy comedy of errors that no matter what race, religion, or planet of origin, men will always be men.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - What Planet Are You From? is a broad, satirical comedy about gender roles, sexuality and alien invasion. Fans of Garry Shandling may be particularly interested in the humor of the film. Some viewers may find the sexually-based humor too crude; others could find the story too busy with extra sub-plots. The comedy is most likely to appeal to adult viewers who find humor in male/female relationship dynamics combined with high-concept comedy.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
I started to get a sense for how good What Planet Are You From? could be at around the fifth or sixth iteration of The Gag. It's also a gimmick that could have grown really old really fast, turning What Planet Are You From? into a one-joke movie without much to laugh at. The reason the joke works for so long and with so many variations is that Shandling (who also co-wrote) and company realize that you can still write a smart comic script that happens to include some lowbrow subjects. What Planet Are You From? may be messy, but it sure is plenty entertaining.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The year is 2,999. Four solar systems and three generations away from Earth lies a highly evolved world populated by what appears to be male life forms. When one of them, Harold, is sent to Earth on a mission to impregnate a woman and have a child, he quickly learns that traveling halfway across the universe was the easy part.

Upon his arrival to Earth, Harold befriends Perry Gordon (Greg Kinnear), a horny, morally challenged specimen of the human male, and together they scope Phoenix for women. To Harold, however, female Earthlings prove to be an immensely diverse and complicated species. On the prowl for the ideal woman with whom he can mate, the alien encounters a wide spectrum of potential candidates: a charming, almost frigid stewardess (Judy Greer), a topless waitress (Anastasia Sakelaris), Perry's sexually aggressive wife, Helen (Linda Fiorentino), and finally, Susan (Oscar nominee Annette Bening), a recovering alcoholic who's about to embark on a new life.
  

As Harold tries his inept hand at dating, he falls victim to the courting and mating anxieties that plague all Earthlings. Neither the leader of his planet nor an Earth simulator could have prepared him for the challenges he would face in his pursuit of a consenting female human, especially Roland Jones (John Goodman), a high-strung FAA agent who's hot on Harold's tail.
