Nukie (1988)

Nukie is an awful science fiction movie that must be watched. It is directed by Sias Odendal and Michael Pakleppa. It concerns two alien brothers crash their ship in the U.S. They get separated, and one searches the country for the other one. The film blatantly cashes in on E.T. and Mac and Me!

In the movie we meet Nukie (David Fox/Bewan Windell) and his brother Meeko (Sara Braunstein) – two weird little aliens with big heads and runny noses who fly through space using some sort of personal energy rather than ships. They are tempted by the beauty of the earth but fly too close, and crash. Nukie lands in Africa and is relatively unharmed but Meeko lands in the United States and is immediately picked up by NASA (via stock footage) referred to in film as the Space Foundation.

While Meeko suffers in America, Nukie meets the quirky inhabitants of a small village in Africa. He befriends twin boys named Tookie and Tiko, and a chimp named Charlie. Nukie and the boys search for `America’, which they think is the name of the evil-doer who is holding Meeko.

It all ends happily, of course, because this is a kids’ movie. Nukie and Meeko fly into space amidst stock footage of fireworks, and they bring along one of their new friends from Earth. Who is the friend? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out!
