Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind
Joshua Butler directs this US teen comedy starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Having failed to make it in L.A. as a TV weatherman, Tim Maroon (Gosselaar) returns to his dead-end hometown of Eureka and hooks up with his old friends Rut (Nick von Esmarch) and Neal (J.P. Manoux). The three head for a camping trip which predictably involves a lot of drinking but, less predictably, an encounter with an alien. Sensing a chance to make their fortune, the three misfits attempt to capture the alien in the belief that they could sell it to the highest bidder. But will getting the better of an alien prove straightforward?
