I'll give the movie a little credit for being smart enough to put Richard Ayoade in it (Ben Stiller helped his film "Submarine" get stateside release) although he was severely underused, in my opinion.

I knew about the alien invasion aspect of it... but they didn't really do anything interesting with it.  At least *I* don't remember that.  This movie's actually become a bit of a calling card for me in terms of stuff I hate: blatant product placement in the center of the movie (f'ing Costco, this isn't Career Opportunities, people!), lazy writing (just cast those guys and they can do their schtick) and ESPECIALLY their poor taste in music.  There's one scene in particular that keeps screaming at my mind, when they take photos with the "dead" alien and "Centerfold" keeps playing, it just struck me as the most derivative thing in the world to me.  It's what drove me to put song titles in my stripper script even though you're totally not supposed to do that.  And maybe it's a confirmation bias or something but I've noticed movie music sucking consistency since seeing this POS flick.
