Riko (Jimi Jackson), a country bumpkin with nothing on his mind but having a good time, gets rather fed up with his aunt (Veronica Edwards) he lives with for warning him about an alien invasion pretty much all the time, even when he's in bed with a girl - but one day, while he's under the shower, he suddenly gets the feeling he's being watched ... and when he turns around, it's two blue-faced aliens (Steven Samuel Johnston, Mel Price). Of course Riko totally freaks out, and when he quiets down and wants to show them to others, they're gone. But he notices a pipe leading from Riko's basement straight into the woods that wasn't there the night before, so he follows it ... and stumbles upon a UFO. He enters the thing and finds the two blue-faced aliens - and after a bit more freaking out, they start to talk, thanks to the aliens' universal translator. Riko finds out that the aliens are only travelling around the universe to have a good time, and they've found the perfect drug to do that on earth - and it just turns out to be human shit ... yup, as in feces. So the three of them decide to hit the town for some serious partying, and get some feces on the side - and the night goes surprisingly smoothly, with the worst thing that happens being Riko landing in bad with overweight food vendor Jacinta (JoJo Waaka), someone who he wouldn't give a second look if not drunk and stoned out of his mind. The problem is, the aliens enjoy her shit the most, and now persuade him to go on a date with her, where he tries to get out of having sex by giving her laxatives.

Now all of this would be nothing but fun and games if it wasn't for alienist Peter (Thomas Sainsbury) and his sidekick Saleem (Ayham Ghalayini) who are pretty much the only ones who have actually witnessed the aliens landing on earth and now try to track them down, and after much to and fro that also involves them confusing Riko and Jacinta for aliens, they actually manage to capture the actual aliens and want to make a fortune by exhibiting them. It's now up to Riko and his best friend Rabbit (Harry Summerfield) to save them - and to bad they haven't got the first idea how to do that ...

 

Now there's one thing that Alien Addiction is definitely not, and that's subtle - rather the contrary, the comedy here is rather on the blunt side, over-flowing with toilet humour, so that might not be to everybody's liking. But one has to hand it to the movie that despite all the feces jokes, the film refrains from just trying to gross out its audience for a quick laugh, and instead actually shows much more heart that one would expect from a comedy about aliens smoking actual shit. It of course helps here that Jimi Jackson gives a very relatable performance here that goes over-the-top only occasionally, and of course, the slightly grotesque old school alien designs and the design on the UFO will strike a chord with vintage sci-fi fans like myself. Of course, if you're looking for actual depth, look somewhere else, but if you're up for a party movie, than this might just be your thing.
