Twisted enough to be fun (5 out of 10)
26 February 2004 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

Three gorgeous female aliens accidentally crash land their spaceship on earth, then try to hide their presence by kidnapping 3 men and a woman whom witnessed the crash, planning to hold them until they can make repairs and leave. But of course this being a comedy/borderline soft core porn the aliens come from a world where there are no men and find themselves totally fascinated by the strange anatomy of their male guests, whom are none too reluctant to demonstrate to them what its all about.

Yes it's cheap, juvenile and crude, but it has sort of an oddball charm and good nature making it enjoyable, well at least to undemanding numbskulls like myself. There was a lot of lost potential for big laughs but its not without its share of moments, in particular a scene where the aliens are arguing over exactly what the humans in the photos of a porn magazine are doing, and one character's HUGE mistake when choosing a place to sit.

The cast is likable, in particular Tony Maiden who's funny as the nerd suddenly turned space stud, and Bob Saget whom does the voice of a drugged out jukebox/advice machine, who's only words of advice are more drugs. The female cast is quite attractive and manage to play out their roles with straight faces, with cute but aggressive Kate Ferguson looking like her character should be a member of a British punk rock band. And yes you do eventually get see them all naked, but by today's standards this movie is actually pretty tame.

5 out of 10, it could have been a lot better but its good for some laughs if you're in the right mood.
