The Mating Habits Of The Earthbound Human (1999)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
An anthropologist from an alien planet provides voice-over commentary for a documentary look at human courtship, mating, and reproduction: "complex, perverse, tragically beautiful: the earthbound human." The commentary gets some of the details comically wrong (explaining the slap on a newborn's back: "they don't like the looks of the child so they beat it"), but gets right the overall idea. We follow Billy and Jenny from their meeting at a club, initial misunderstandings, his losing her phone number, finally connecting, walks on the beach, soulful talks, meeting each other's parents, friends' advice, and the gradual taking of the relationship to new levels.

- Narrator: The males, too, have a discussion: The Male's Friend: Fucked her? The Male: Fucked her. The Male's Friend: Cool.
Narrator: The female pulls a bone out of her head...
The Male: She always had this mother smell. You know, chicken soup and... floor wax.
Narrator: They force him to consume large amounts of fermented grain in an attempt to kill him. Unwilling to mate, he is no longer of any use to their species.
Narrator: The male tries to validate his existence and prove he doesn't need a female to mate. He attempts to devolve into a hermaphrodite and give birth to offspring on his own. [male character vomits] Narrator: For the male, this will prove ultimately unfulfilling. Although genetically equipped to deliver the placenta... [more vomiting] Narrator: he is unable to produce the infant itself.
