PG-13 | | Adventure, Comedy, Mystery
A police officer joins a secret organization that polices and monitors extraterrestrial interactions on Earth.
When K reveals there are about 1,500 aliens on Earth, and most of them are in Manhattan just trying to make a living, James asks "Cab drivers?". This is a reference to writer Douglas Adams's 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' novels, particularly the fourth novel 'So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish', where archivist Ford Prefect's entry in the Guide hints that driving a cab is a good way to make a living for aliens visiting New York City.
Nick the Van Driver:
K & J stop an alien in a car (the alien with the pregnant wife) because the alien is fleeing Manhattan, the area to which his visa restricts him. The alien's car is pointed toward Manhattan.
In the opening credits, a dragonfly flies around the countryside.
The version that is seen on 7mate in Australia is completely uncut and PG. Some Blu-Rays rule the film PG. There is including something interesting that the GO! version when they still owned it to play on mainstream Australian television is rated M for "some violence"
