The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe (1991) is the filmed version of the one-woman stage show written by Jane Wagner and starring Lily Tomlin,[1] which won the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience.

Directed by John Bailey and edited by Sally Menke, the film stays true to the original stage performance, earning it the Golden Space Needle Award at the Seattle International Film Festival. For her efforts on film and stage, Tomlin received a Tony Award, and Funniest Actress in a Motion Picture in the American Comedy Awards, amongst other notable accolades.

Because of an intentional misspelling in the movie the film is also known as The Search for Signs of Inteligent Life in the Universe.
