The mini-planet Zots is in great danger: Something is eating up its ozone layer, and it's suspected that strong feelings, predominantly love, are responsible - especially since the people from Zots are usually used to bottling up their feelings to the point of self-denial. But there is a solution: Send all those who love to earth where they can get their hearts broken, then they will bottle up their feelings as a natural reaction ...

New York City, earth: Timid stationary shop employee Jane (Lisa Haas), not exactly the most attractive woman around, has the habit of escaping into fantasy worlds since she's often not good at coping with the real world. She sees a therapist (Rae C.Wright) about this, but somehow it seems that Jane is happier in that other world of hers. Then Jane meets Zoinx (Susan Ziegler), one of the aliens from Zots, who seems to be ill-prepared for life on earth, and whose outfit and bald head, manner and monotonous speaking patterns make her stick out (not that anybody would notice much in NYC though). Somehow Jane and Zoinx take an instant liking in each other, since in their way they are both outcasts, and they eventually become a couple, but without Zoinx telling Jane she is an alien of course.

Jane and Zoinx are observed by two gouvernment agents (Dennis Davis, Alex Karpovsky), who go about their job with such inefficiency though that it is no wonder that in the end one of them (Karpovsky) is revealed to be an alien, looking after the exiled.

Zylar (Jackie Monaham) and Barr (Cynthia Kaplan) meanwhile go about getting their heart broken in a more pro-active way that also includes heavy partying, living a promiscuous lifestyle and whatnot - only to eventually realize it's actually each other they love.

Eventually, a big discovery is made on planet Zots: It's not feelings that kill the ozone layer but all those bald heads that reflect the rays of the sun back into the stratosphere much too strongly. So hats are now mandatory, but all those exiled to earth are ordered to return. The fact that Zoinx, who only now admits to being an alien (as if Jane wouldn't have noticed), has to leave breaks both her and Jane's heart. But ultimately, Jane sneaks into Zoinx' UFO, just to be with the love of her life. Sure, she will be a misfit on Zots, but hey, she has been one on earth as well ...

 

The title of this film alone, Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, is next to ingenious, and the concept the film is based on - a (lesbian) romantic comedy with a strong sci fi theme to it - sounds interesting and original to say the least ... and you know what, for a change the film mostly delivers: It's genuinely funny, features hilarious dialogue, has its science fiction references in all the right places, and it never loses sight of its story in favour of a few sight gags. On top of that, it paints a beautiful picture of New York City without becoming swentimental. And that the film is not half as provocative as its title is not necessarily a bad thing.

There are however a few things that keep this movie from being great: The monotonous voices of the aliens really get on one's nerve before too long, and even though the voices are a narrative device, it's a bit overdone, the special effects, while intentionally cheap and bottom-of-the-barrel, are just too much and too obviously so, and could have done with a bit of polishing (not much though), and the ending is a bit too cheesy and tried-and-true.

Still, above all of this, this is a fun film.
