In 1995, a mysterious piece of top secret black and white footage, supposedly filmed during the Roswell incident of 1947, was broadcast around the World to an expectant TV audience, It showed the autopsy of an Alien life form. Two men were responsible for the discovery of the footage, best friends Ray (Declan Donnelly) and Gary (Ant McPartlin). The discovery of the film throws them into the centre of a media frenzy and catapults them into the limelight. However, the two have an even bigger secret and if the truth got out what would happen to them? Based on true events, Alien Autopsy is the story of two unlikely lads from London who became icons in UFOlogy.
Ant and Dec are surprisingly good in Alien Autopsy. Given that they are known as presenters, you forget that they can actually act, too. The film is a humerous account of the faking of the autopy of an alien body, and it's great because there's an element of truth to the story, and also because you sympathise with the characters.
