      A boy and his grandfather are struggling to keep their hotel in business. When a UFO passes over the town and crashes nearby, the pair decide to stay home while the rest of the townspeople go investigate. Shortly afterwards, an alien family staggers out of the woods asking for protection from both the mob of civillians and the government agents searching for them. Granddad and grandson agree, disguising the aliens as humans and teaching them how to blend in on Earth.

I can remember going to the theater to see this as a little girl and thought it was the best movie ever! To this day I remember bits and pieces about the spaceship underwater and the aliens having the ability to disappear! I remember the family trying to hide the aliens in a camper. I remember sitting in the theater and not wanting the movie to end! I would love for my kids to be able to see this too! It would be great to see this one again!! Help me find it please. I have looked online at numerous places but I can not find where I can buy this movie. Unfortunately I can't find this movie anywhere! If anyone knows where to buy or even rent it, please post it and let me know! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE....I have to find this one!
