Default Can you name this movie?

I've been trying to remember what film this is. Basically it's about a guy who comes from an alien world I believe, in human form, and one of the first things he learned as a human was the middle finger, so throughout the movie he flips people off as to say hello or thank you.

It was probably made in the late 70's or early 80's. From what I remember, it sorta reminds me of a Cocoon type story mixed with a Close Encounters vibe. It's one of my first memories as kid watching a film. Could have been the first film I ever watched actually. I'm dying to know the name of it if any of you find this character familiar.

Starman (1984) with Jeff Bridges (I think!).

Wow, that's it!!! So I guess that is my first movie experience. Although, I believe it was on TV when I watched it, so probably a few years after 84'. If I ever make it one day, I should remake this. Great premise.

Thanks!
