Eric McCormick wielded sarcasm better than anybody on primetime television in 30 years on "Will & Grace". Robert Patrick is, well....Robert Patrick.

Take these two, throw them into an homage to late 50's and early 60's sci-fi, and it can't turn out bad. "Alien Trespass" earned a B+ from the notoriously stingy Entertainment Weekly, kudos for them.

Knowing, witty, self-aware "throwback" movies like "Matinee" and "Ed Wood" are too rare to pass by, so do like my kid and I plan to do this weekend, and head out and give some support to this effort that appears to be pretty unique, especially in today's film climate.
