Amanda and the Alien (or Alien Love in the UK) is a 1995 made-for-cable science-fiction comedy movie directed by Jon Kroll and starring Nicole Eggert as Amanda Patterson. It premiered on Showtime on August 20, 1995.
Amanda, an employee at an upscale clothing store, is leading a relatively lonely and unremarkable life. All this changes when an alien that's been held at a secret military installation escapes by taking over the body of one of the base employees. Amanda finds the fugitive alien and decides to help it hide from the government agents chasing it, a seemingly easy task, as the alien must change host bodies every few days.
It is based upon the short story of the same name written by Robert Silverberg.

The New York Daily News criticized Eggert's acting and wrote that the film "wastes so much time deciding whether it wants to steal from 'Life-force,' 'Starman,' 'Species' or 'Earth Girls Are Easy' that it goes nowhere fast."
