  • Cast
Ingeniously disguised as a human, an alien vessel and its crew of miniature extraterrestrials (led by Eddie Murphy, playing dual roles as the ship's commander and the spacecraft) lands on Earth looking for a way to save their planet from destruction. New problems arise, however, when the aliens' ship-in-human-form falls for a pretty earthling (Elizabeth Banks) who has no idea who she's dealing with.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this Eddie Murphy comedy is mostly inoffensive, the alien characters display some off-putting stereotypes about gay men, women, and African Americans. The jokes aren't crass -- they're just cliched and stupid (for example, liking showtunes means you're flamboyantly homosexual, being black means you love rap, etc.). Otherwise, there's some scatological humor, a couple scenes of mild violence, some mild drinking and language, and a whole lot of product placements.

Sexual Content

Mild flirting, hugging, and one kiss. An alien remarks on a woman's behind.

Violence

"Dave" gets struck by a car, and his "ankle" looks broken. There's an armed takeover of the Dave spaceship and a shootout between Dave and the NYPD. An alien tries to destroy earth, but it's more comical than scary.

Language

Mild: "damn it," "ass," etc.

Social Behavior

On the one hand, aliens realize that Earthlings aren't all evil and worth destroying, and a timid boy acts courageously. But on the other hand, there are several off-putting sterotypes: After hearing a showtune, one alien exhibits flamboyant homosexual stereotypes; a female alien starts trashtalking about other women's weight; a black alien starts listening to rap, commenting on women's behinds, etc.

Consumerism

One scene is practically an Old Navy commercial; another takes place in an Apple store. There are several references to Internet companies like Google, Yahoo!, MySpace, etc. Other product placements include Heinz ketchup and the Broadway musical A Chorus Line.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults have mojitos at a restaurant; aliens consume the alcohol that "Dave" drinks.
