"What Planet Are You From?" is a 2000 comedy film starring Garry Shandling and Annette Bening. It was directed by Mike Nichols.


A denizen (Garry Shandling) of a faraway planet occupied only by highly evolved males is ordered to find a female human, impregnate her and bring the baby back to the planet. The visitor to Earth assumes the name Harold Anderson and eventually meets Susan (Annette Bening), a recovering alcoholic. He must marry her before he can try to mate.

Greg Kinnear plays Harold's sleazy, conniving co-worker at the bank, and John Goodman co-stars as an FAA worker obsessed with finding the alien.
