It's the first comet to buzz our planet Earth in 65 million years, and everyone seems to be celebrating its imminent arrival. Everyone except Regina Belmont, and her younger sister Samantha, two Valley Girls who care more about fashion trends than celestial phenomena. But upon daybreak, when the girls discover that they are the only residents of Los Angeles whom the comet hasn't vaporized or turned into a zombie, they would do what all Valley Girls do - they go shopping. However, with the help of a friendly truck driver, the girls save Earth and escape from flesh-eating zombies and blood-seeking scientists in hot pursuit. Written by

Doris, Reggie's on the phone.
She's not having car trouble?
She's going to be out all night with her science class at the observatory. I know all about it.
Yeah. Hi, Doris.
What's this about a science class, Regina?
Well, you want me to do better in science don't you?
I want you home in 5 minutes after you finish work. If you want to watch the comet, you can do it here.
Look, Doris. Like, I'm 18 okay? And I can watch the comet where ever I want to watch the comet.

I originally saw this movie in the theater, and I LOVED it! I had often fantasized about the end of the world where only myself a few others had survived.
Well, I'm 16 years older now, and not quite as misanthropic, but I still got a kick out of watching this again the other night. Sure, the soundtrack was atrocious, and some of the acting was sub-par, but the sheer aplomb that "Samantha" has carries the film, I thought.
Plus, it was fun to see Robert Beltran (ST: Voyager's second in command), so much younger!
Quite a few laughs, and a pretty good plot twist or two to keep you guessing makes this an easy movie to enjoy.
My rating: 7
