I watched you very carefully. Red light stop, green light go, yellow light go very fast. (Starman to Jenny Heyden while he was driving)

Starman: "I do know the rules. I watched you very carefully. Red light, Stop. Green light, Go. Yellow light, go very fast."

Jenny Hayden: Love is, um, it's when you care more for someone else than you do yourself.

George Fox: Do you seriously expect me to tell the President that an alien has landed, assumed the identity of a dead housepainter from Madison, Wisconsin and is presently out tooling around the countryside in a hopped up orange and black 1977 Mustang?

I saw this when it first came out and enjoyed it as then as I do now. This movie has a very good script, and is well acted. I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.

Jeff Bridges is gorgeous and perfect as the alien. My only problem with the movie is that it stereotypes everybody else but the heroine. People--mostly police, the military and the government--are insensitive, ignorant idiots, who can't see pass their noses. All the years I lived in the US has proven me Americans are a great people. But, well, what can one expect of Hollywood?

This is a fun movie. It's a love story that communicates what the really great things about being human are.
