I judge a movie largely by the quality of the story, and if we leave out the chick-flickiness aspect of this film, what we are left with is a highly original plot. Yes, it’s sort of Invasion of the Body-Snatchers, but played out to the Nth degree where some of the aliens switch sides. I also appreciate that the conceptual framework is well-realised. The fact that my mother enjoyed the movie immensely is possibly an even better indication of its worthiness.
At the very least, this is possibly one of those useful films that male-nerds can take their non-nerd female partners to see.
Nice one Meyer.
