First review, three stars.

....when that turns out to involve The Hangover’s Ken Jeong as the beerily-named Bud Miller and his pop-culture obsessed alien buddy Steve (voiced by Harry Potter’s Jason Isaacs), all pretence at seriousness is banished, and it’s time to put your feet up on the seat in front of you and try not to spill your popcorn.
It opens in Australia tomorrow.

Enter: the comedy relief!

Alas. He will be unrecognizable as an alien.

Well it does not sound like he is playing the alien (as in Jason in alien makeup) - but doing the voice work interesting

I stand corrected. He voices the alien.

After watching Mary Chiefo being turned into L’Rel - I can’t imagine Jason putting up with several hours in the make up chair! But I could be wrong. I will have to ask him - if they ever have Sci-Fi conventions again!

Not with his voice! (I’m pretty sure I heard it twice in this trailer....)

Unless . . .someone else will sit in the makeup chair for 4 hours, and Jason will voice it. :razz
