Having crashed to Earth, an extraterrestrial space traveller must assume a human identity lest he be captured by the authorities. The alien (Jeff Bridges) chooses the likeness of the recently deceased husband of Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen). At first dumbstruck, Jenny becomes both hostile toward and frightened of her guest. He gradually wins her confidence, learning a few vital English-language phrases so that he can explain his presence. The "starman" has come to Earth with a message of peace, in response to the similar message sent out on Voyager One. He asks for Jenny's help in transporting him to the Nevada desert, where his fellow aliens are to pick him up and take him to his home planet. Soon he and Jenny form a united front against a mean-spirited National Security Council agent (Richard Jaeckel), who intends to seize the starman and turn him over for scientific scrutiny (and possible extermination). While en route to Nevada, Jenny grows closer to the gentle-natured Starman, eventually making love with him. By the time he is poised to leave, she is carrying his child, leaving the field wide open for a sequel--which was never produced, though a weekly TV version surfaced in 1986.

This is a delightful tail. Both touching, and romantic, with a little fear thrown in for good measure. In some respects it is like the 'TERMINATOR'. It contains one shot that some might find a bit shocking, but it is done in good taste. Though I must admit it threw might for a loop. If you're a Jeff Bridges fan this is a must see, and if you're not a fan, this is still an excellent movie worth viewing.

Now, I don't know what kind of person would actually waste their time watching this movie either on tv or heaven forbid, buy the dvd... underacted, overacted... terrible script, ugly C list actors and actresses... these actors need to do what they do best... stay out of the limelight. I'm sure we'll see these "actors" on celebrity rehab, or driving around with Britney Spears... this was the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. My sister loves this movie, and for the life of me I don't know why... the deer scene??? what was that??? And that little twitch he had... I felt like giving him a twitch of my own! If you decide to watch or buy this dvd,... I wish you the best. If I'm ever caught watching this movie, rest assured that I am in a hospital, in a coma, and the nurse left it on that movie... other than that, this movie will leave you in a coma!
