Action movie where villain gets in woman’s face

As a kid, I saw the end of a movie on TV back in the early to mid 2000s. The movie itself was probably from the ’90s or early ’00s. I believe it was an action movie where a man was trying to save a little kid from something (not sure of the situation or the kid’s gender, may have been a girl). The kid’s mother was upset and crying about how her kid was in danger. A villainous character was really close to her face, speaking softly to her like he was trying to “comfort” her. He seemed to have romantic/sexual interest in her and I remember thinking they were going to kiss. The villain’s voice was kind of high-pitched and he came across as effeminate even though he was into the woman. I think he did actually try to kiss her at one point but she stopped him. I also remember a scene where the hero saves the kid from a helicopter and the kid is crying.

There is a similar scene like this in the movie Virtuosity (1995) but that is not the movie I’m thinking of. This movie was not sci-fi or fantasy, it was a pretty typical action flick. All of the characters involved (hero, woman, child, villains) were white.

Alien comedy seen on TV

When I was a kid, I once saw my parents watching a movie on TV where a group of aliens were sitting on the ground, in a circle. They might have been sitting around a fire. The setting looked like a desert or something similar. The aliens were speaking English in regular voices; some voices may have been higher pitched or made to sound more “funny”. I believe they had American accents. It was definitely a comedy. The aliens looked similar to the ones in Mars Attacks, but I know that wasn’t the movie I saw. The alien costumes looked like old-fashioned rubber suits, but the mouths moved when they spoke. I saw the clip in the early 2000s, but the movie itself looked like it was probably from the ’80s or ’90s. Does anyone know what this might be? It’s been bothering me for years.
