The aliens prefer the USA
There's something in this movie I don't like: The aliens have an american style of life and they even look like american people! Well, almost all of them live in L.A., that's a fact in the movie, but that's not enough.As we know, american people look like american people, english people look like english people, french people look like french people... and aliens should look like aliens, not like american people. When somebody from Japan comes to the USA, he/she can adopt the american style of life, but will still look like a japanese, even if he/she stays in the USA for the rest of his/her life.I accept that in other films, i.e. where the screenplay centers on the police of New York, The FBI, etc., but not in a Sci-Fi movie!. To have a better idea of what it seems to me, imagine the film was made in Spain. Well, now imagine the aliens living in Spain, eating paella, as spanish gendarmery agents, some of them as bullfighters, and acting just like spanish people do in the spanish films... what would you think about the film...? Sincerely, I think it's not serious, and only american people can really enjoy this film.
