Trivia

The film was originally slated to be released by Warner Bros. in 1986, but the studio turned it down after Julian Temple's previous film Absolute Beginners (1986) proved less than stellar at the box office. De Laurentiis Entertainment Group (DEG) eventually agreed to distribute it, but the film would eventually be acquired by Vestron Pictures after DEG filed for bankruptcy after filming was complete. Prior to Vestron picking up the film for distribution, other studios including New World Pictures, Nelson Entertainment, MGM, and 20th Century Fox expressed interest in acquiring the film.

Quotes

Valerie: [Frantically to Candy] A UFO landed in my pool and they captured me but we made friends and I fed them Pop-Tarts and, um, they're here now, but Ted's coming home tonight so you've got to cut their hair.
Owner of Beauty Shop: What did you say?
Valerie: Oh, nothing. I'm on drugs.
[Turns back to Candy]
Valerie: Candy, you've got to help them out.

A joyous romp - fluff, but Really Good Fluff!
6 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sadly a few jaded commentators (including the late redoubtable Halliwell) seen to have taken this movie far too seriously...pay no attention! This movie mas made as a zany fluffy comedy, and it succeeds admirably at it. With talents like Gina Davis, Geoff Goldblum, the young Jim Carrey and the multi-talented Julie Brown amongst others how could it fail? Memorable moments include the aliens' learning isolated English phrases from commercials and old movies - "limp and hard to manage" has become a family in-joke; the like,-totally-cool-to-whatever-outrageous-happens surfer Woody (Michael McKean); the makeover; and Julie Brown's song, now a classic on Dr Demento, "Because I'm Blonde".

For anyone who complains the special effects are cheesy - they're _meant_ to be! This is in part a spoof of the 1950's aliens-come-to-earth B movies, so watch closely when the space ship arrives, hovers over the trees, and does its forced landing in Davis' pool: it is a triumph of reproducing the authentic 1950's effect, not a poor attempt at 80's FX tech! All in all the production values, cinematography and direction are excellent throughout and support the fine cast and writers to produce one of the most delightful light comedies of the 80's.

Don't miss this charmer. See it when it comes around on TV. Rent it, or buy it and show all your friends. Just be sure you're in the mood for comic nonsense, not Dostoyevsky!
