Reviews

The New York Times - Janet Maslin
Starman provides him with a role that, played by anyone else, might seem preposterous. In Mr. Bridges' hands it becomes the occasion for a sweetly affecting characterization - a fine showcase for the actor's blend of grace, precision and seemingly offhanded charm.
75
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Starman contains the potential to be a very silly movie, but the two actors have so much sympathy for their characters that the movie, advertised as space fiction, turns into one of 1984's more touching love stories.

TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Starman is a wonderful film that combines science fiction, road movies, and romance into an engaging, very entertaining whole.

Variety - Unnamed
There is little that is original in Starman, but at least it has chosen good models.
63
Christian Science Monitor - David Sterritt
The gentlest of his movies, it shows a new maturity in Mr. Carpenter's outlook, emphasizing close human relations rather than shocks and outlandish effects. Although it never quite comes together, it shows a shift of focus and interest that bodes well for his work to come. [31 Dec 1984, p.18]
