Meet Dave - Wikipedia
It is revealed to be a spaceship which resembles a human Eddie Murphycontrolled by tiny humanoid aliens. Its Captain also played by Murphy pilots the spaceship from the command deck located in its head, with the help of his second-in-command Number 2 Ed Helmsand researcher Number 3 Gabrielle Union. The spaceship looks very human, and displays numerous superpowers, but the aliens don't know how to make the "ship" act like a human.
A superstitious cop named Dooley Scott Caan desperately searches for the alien. The aliens need to save their planet, Nil, from an energy crisis. They need salt, which they plan to take by draining the Earth's oceans using the metal ball, so they have to recover the ball.
He tells them his name is Dave Ming Chang, based on a quick scan of common Earth names. At Gina's home the crew see their missing ball in a photograph taken at the science presentation. After having breakfast with Gina, "Dave" goes to Josh's school where he pretends to be a substitute teacher and eventually is able to talk to Josh alone.
Josh tells him that the ball was taken from him by a bully Nicholas Berman. With Josh's help, Dave takes the metal ball back from the bully.
The Captain via Dave spends some time with Josh and Gina and realizes that humans are more advanced than they originally thought.
The crew observes humans displaying feelings and love, such as witnessing Gina's painting or a homeless man offering to share his blanket with Dave when he sleeps in a doorway.
The Captain decides to cancel the plan to drain the oceans because it would destroy life on Earth. The police track Dave down using the impression of his face found in the dirt at the crash site and they arrest him.
After spending so much time on Earth, most of the crew begin to exhibit new "feelings", adopting Earth's culture, mannerisms and general laid-back attitude. Number 2 decides that the Captain and the rest of the crew's changing behavior is unacceptable and takes command of the "ship", imprisoning the Captain. Under Number 2's command, Dave breaks out of the police station and another attempt is made to arrest him.
Number 3, who has become infatuated with the Captain, becomes jealous of Gina.Meet Dave ending to film
She first cooperates in the command change but later agrees with the Captain's view on humans. Both are caught by Number 2 and they are expelled from the spaceship.
In the meantime, Number 17 Kevin Harta young, fun-loving alien, jumps out of the "ship" while drunk from the alcohol Dave has imbibed. Horatia Harrod Puffball 18 Veteran Brit director Nicolas Roeg wove so much cinematic magic early in his career - from 's psychological thriller Don't Look Now, to very nearly coaxing a decent actor's performance out of David Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth - that he can be forgiven the patchiness of his more recent films.
But surely not this one.
Based on a Fay Weldon novel, it tells the bizarre, supernatural tale of a pregnant young architect Kelly Reilly who retreats to rural Ireland to renovate a derelict cottage, only to invoke the jealousy of a barren, local farmer's wife Miranda Richardson and her mad old bat of a mother. The latter proves handy at concocting love potions that transfer one woman's pregnancy to another, and lo and behold, before you can say 'pagan fertility mumbo-jumbo', a form of gynaecological guerrilla warfare breaks out between the female leads.
Roeg calls on no end of moon, forest and rock symbolism to try and summon up a mystical, ur-Irish atmosphere, yet it feels contrived rather than compelling.
Film reviews: Meet Dave, Puffball and more
Worst of all, the director who gave us the most affecting sex scene in movie history - between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie in Don't Look Now - has here produced two of the most laughable, in close-up shots that are a lot more intimate than is strictly necessary.
Alastair Smart City of Men 15 City of GodFernando Meirelles' blistering, favela-set gangster movie about gun-toting adolescents, reminded us there's rather more to Rio de Janeiro than samba, bikinis and that cliff-top statue of Christ. This follow-up feature revisits the slums and tells the tale of two new characters - best friends Ace and Wallace, who are caught up on opposing sides in a gang war.
Meirelles is this time just a producer and has handed over the directorial reins to fellow Brazilian Paolo Morelli, who - notwithstanding the scene of a mass gunfight across a football pitch - adopts a less electric, more humane approach.
Ace has a toddler son, whom he's reluctant to raise, while Wallace is desperately searching for the father that he never knew, and the film functions chiefly as a musing on paternity. What value a father in a society where allegiance is primarily to one's gang, rather than one's family, and where you're lucky to survive long enough to see your little cherub fire his first AK?
