I really liked this movie. Jeff Bridges portrays the alien really extremely well, and I totally bought that his character was from a different world. As the movie progressed, I grew to care more and more for the two main leads. The movie tells a compelling story, whilst also incorporating some funny fish out of water scenes too. The only problem I had was that the government subplot was kinda forgettable, but that did not affect the movie as a whole.

Mistakes

When Jenny Hayden and Starman accidentally overshoot their destination and arrive in Las Vegas, Jenny discovers that her wallet is missing. She has no cash, no credit cards, and no identification whatsoever. The only money she has is a single quarter. Starman uses the quarter to hit the jackpot on a 25-cent slot machine, then uses the prize money to play the Horseshoe $500,000 slot machine, which he also wins. They then use the giant jackpot money to purchase a brand new Cadillac and drive it off the lot. Huge problem: In 1984 (and today), you could never collect a giant Las Vegas jackpot without several pieces of personal identification, for tax purposes. Likewise, you could never purchase and drive a brand new Cadillac off the lot without multiple pieces of identification and a financial disclosure statement (if paying cash).
