A man needs a hobby, and Dan Aykroyd proves a persuasively articulate advocate for his in “Unplugged on UFOs.” While the notion of the sometime Mr. Conehead expounding on possible E.T. visitations might suggest an April Fool’s joke, the star is duly serious and well-educated on subject. His earnest musings are used by helmer, interviewer and self-defined “Ufologist” David B. Sereda to rehash material already familiar to enthusiasts, from Roswell to Area 51 and beyond. Serviceable item’s tabloid-TV style won’t tempt theatrical exposure, but it should appeal to the curious and already-converted as a rental and possible cable pickup.

Commencing with the statement that “Millions of people around the world have claimed to see UFOs,” Aykroyd among them, Sereda lets his celebrity ally summarize evidence and theories re: UFO sightings (apparently on the rise lately), abductions, technology and their likely U.S. governmental cover-up. Also interviewed are former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer, retired NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper and others who argue the issue’s validity is by now not in question. Vid footage, photos and artists’ renderings are offered — many arguably hoaxes or capturing weather-induced phenomena, but their accumulated weight is thought-provoking.
