A heads up if you order a DVD and then don't preview it right away: I first ordered a copy of this DVD over a year ago. Then I finally viewed it, and it was damaged. Since it was such a long time ago, I had to order a second copy, and it arrived undamaged. Lesson: put newly arrived DVDs in your DVD player right away.
For ESL use, "Enemy Mine" is delightful. Not only do two beings have to learn each other's languages, there is also a depiction of becoming appreciative of another culture. For some it will be too sappy, but I like the stongly-felt emotions in the movie.
Excellent movies on how people with differences can overcome anything together despite preconceived notions. And live through something extraordinary to not just work - but be at peace together. Only Sci-Fi, or is it??? Superbly acted, written and directed. Yet genius simple. Anyways, I liked them Very Much and recommend to anyone whose ever stayed up too late at night over a problem, or had their own hate walls tumble around them to discover a true friend. (I know - a little sappy but I couldn't wait for these to come to DVD). Two Good Movies. Five Stars. ;)
"Alien Nation" at least had an interesting plot [shamelessly copied by "District 9"]. The acting in "Enemy Mine" is so bad as to be painful to watch. The wretched high schoolish writing and direction really kill this stinker.
