THE ASTRONAUT’S WIFE (1999) * ½

Johnny Depp plays an astronaut that returns home from space to his wife (Charlize Theron). He begins exhibiting strange behavior, like listening to static on the radio, and after a night of passion, she becomes pregnant with alien twins.  Joe (Terminator 2) Morton is the ex-NASA official who convinces her something’s wrong.  “He’s not you husband anymore!”  A rather dull, joyless and plodding variation on Rosemary’s Baby, I Married a Monster From Outer Space and Species 2 (all better movies than this).  Theron played almost the same role in The Devil’s Advocate and believe it or not, this is one of Depp’s most “normal” roles in a while.  Best part:  Sid Vicious’ version of “My Way” is heard at a party.  Co-starring Clea (Girl Interrupted) DuVall.
