| An excellent treatment of a familiar story
Of course the story told by this film (aliens land in small Mid-West town and start taking over the humans) is very familiar but it is still a great story and this film tells it as well as any of the others (and better than most). There is a lot of humour, many very good action scenes, and some really nail-biting suspense. But what really makes this film special are the main characters: a delightful group of funny and interesting students, who have to cope with the trials of high-school life as well as the demands of defending the Earth against an insidious alien invasion.

If you know the other films of Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn) you will find another film which displays the same wit and assured lightness of touch that makes this director's work such a pleasure.

Great Stuff!

Trivia

(at around 36 mins) After Christopher McDonald's character (Mr. Connor) wishes Robert Patrick's (Coach Willis) good luck with the football game, Patrick shoots at McDonald with his hand. This is an homage to McDonald's famous "Shooter" McGavin character from the film Happy Gilmore (1996).


Quotes

Goofs
