Dating habits of the earthbound

Rated 4.36/5 based on 567 customer reviews

The relationship "footage" is played straight, while the voice-over (with its most often wildly inaccurate theories) and elaborate visual metaphors add comedy.Among other themes the film explores the possibility that, whenever describing their interpretations of other species' acts and feelings, humans may get everything wrong.window.sbbop Loaded){ var sbbop_modal = create Modal(modal); if (sbbop_modal !A Mockumentary on the subject of late 90s dating, from the perspective of an alien observer, complete with Wildlife Commentary Spoof style narration.The Narrator begins by informing us that humans have a strange and complex mating ritual, and it is a wonder that they have not yet gone extinct.So to aliens, the club where Billy and Jenni meets becomes a hunting ground, and the bouncer is the warrior who is appeased by their offerings of pieces of tree bark (cover charge).“They do not like the look of the child, so they beat it.” A film released in 1999, written and directed by Jeff Abugov that playfully pokes fun of dating rituals in American society.

When Jenny gives Billy her phone number the narrator states, “ She draws symbols on a smooth piece of tree bark in hopes that he will like them.” This movie is playful and very tongue in cheek, and reminds me of such films as The gods must be crazy and Monty Python’s Search for the Holy Grail.The two spend the rest of evening searching, but not finding anyone interesting.Shortly before leaving the bar, they meet near the bathroom, and this time Billy gets it right.Billy, a shy young man looking for a date, meets the beautiful Jenny Smith at a nightclub.They enter a relationship where Billy is bashful to tell Jenny that he loves her due to fear of being "trapped", and both paramours receive advice from their respective friends.
