There should be no realism argument since this movie is about an alien that looks like a human that is flying around. It's not trying to be realistic in the first place.
So nothing from 21st Century society at all?
When did I say that? I only said people shouldn't use the realism argument.

Product placement is only bad if it is really in your face.
Why not? Realism has different levels. Obviously the human looking aliens who fly would be out of the question in a film with total realism. Sears and IHOP showing up in a film about human looking aliens who fly lend just the right amount of realism to keep the film grounded.
