It Came From the Sky, also known as Visiteurs impromptus, Les (Canada: French title) was a 1999 made-for-TV movie which was a comedy drama that starred Yasmine Bleeth, John Ritter, Christopher Lloyd and JoBeth Williams.


Donald Bridges (John Ritter) and his wife Alice (JoBeth Williams) have a young son, Andy, (Kevin Zegers) who is emotionally disturbed due to a near drowning accident. The parents frequently argue with each other about how to raise their son until they have uninvited houseguests when a plane carrying Jarvis Moody (Christopher Lloyd) and Pepper Upper (Yasmine Bleeth) falls from the sky and crashes right onto their roof.

Jarvis and Pepper are a pair of wealthy eccentrics who give Donald and Alice a lesson in how to enjoy life. The stranded couple force the stressed parents to cope with each other and with their son. Then Andy asks through his artwork to be taken to a special school for children with his type of disorder. All of their lives are changed forever in this warm, offbeat fairytale.
