Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This light comedy finds an inept reporter keeping his job only because his uncle owns the paper he works for. He is assigned to cover the story of a woman giving birth to sextuplets on a small island off the coast of France. The gullible reporter is given a false story, by a social worker, that Martians have landed on the island. When he prints the story, the island is besieged with visitors and curiosity seekers. Among the visitors are two beings from another planet who really believe their interplanetary brethren have arrived. The sextuplets are born, but the reporter is fired. He missed two really big scoops that have the newborns taken away in a spaceship by their father, a real alien. A giant dinosaur-like creature emerges from the watery depths of the ocean to see what all the fuss is about. The reporter and babies are long gone and the disinterested monster gives the island one last look before going home.
