|Everyone's favorite, furry, cat-eating, alien puppet stars in his own made-for-TV film, PROJECT: ALF. Picking up where the final episode of the 1980s sitcom left off, ALF (voiced by series creator Paul Fusco) has left the Tanner household and is on his way to his home planet when he is intercepted by the government's Alien Task Force and imprisoned in an underground Air Force base. With his fate at the mercy of military officer Colonel Milfoil (Martin Sheen), who wants to exterminate the alien, and doctors Mullican (William O'Leary) and Hill (Jensen Daggett), who want to save him, ALF stages a comedic breakout and embarks on a madcap cross-country odyssey to finally get back home. Miguel Ferrer, Ray Walston, and Ed Begley Jr. costar in this zany conclusion to the 1980s pop-culture phenomenon.|

I loved ALF and I was really disappointed that it ended on a cliffhanger. I wanted to see Project: ALF when it came out, but I was out of the country at the time so I missed it. That being said, I'm glad I was finally able to see Project: ALF and it does give closure, but it was nowhere near as good as the series. ALF (actual character’s name was Gordon Shumway) was at his best when he was being totally self-absorbed, rude, inconsiderate, politically incorrect for the time, and throwing out one-liners. There are a few moments in Project: ALF where he does this again, but most of the 90 or so minutes show other non-original cast members and it really slows down during these periods. The original family is also nowhere to be seen. On the other hand, the scenes of ALF on the centrifuge were original and very funny. If you were an ALF fan like me and you were left on the series ending cliffhanger, then you should see this movie and you'll mostly enjoy it; but be forewarned, it just doesn't have the show's original magic. And if you were never a fan of the show or you hadn't seen it at all, then you should take a pass on seeing it.
Finally closure on Alf...sort of.
The final episode ("Consider Me Gone") was intended as a cliffhanger. At the time it was filmed, NBC was still undecided as to whether or not the show would be picked up for another season. The cliffhanger format was intended to help persuade NBC to give the show one more chance, if only to resolve the "To Be Continued" ending. Six years later, the TV movie Project: ALF (1996) (TV) finally brought closure. Unfortunately the lack of the original human cast, and poor writing, cause many fans to reject Project: ALF as part of the show's canon. It didn't capture the same spirit and charm of the original show. Without Willie and Kate (especially) and the original gang to play off of, Alf didn't have the same charm or wit.
PROJECT ALF DVD IS A MUST FOR ALF FANS!
This was the long awaited sequel for the Alf series, which ended in 90, and ran for 4 seasons. (86-90) I find it to be entertaining for adult fans, and still mostly kid friendly in content. I do know everyone has different opinions about the movie, but I feel it does give some follow up closure to the series, which ended in 90, and this did not air until 2002 If I remember correctly on television first, and DVD became on sale in 2005. I have the complete 4 season collectors set, plus this now completes to date, for myself, all the funny memories of the ole ALFSTER!!
