Trio of fuzzy (and funny) aliens crash land in Valerie's pool-- putting a decided damper on her future wedding plans to cheating Dr. Ted Gallagher. Action interrupted by musical numbers--an MTV musical comedy. Written by

Much of the language that the aliens speak is actually just the dialogue being read backwards (this is particularly obvious with Jim Carrey (Wiploc) during his conversations with Zeebo). For example, 'from' becomes 'morf' and 'females' becomes 'sel-a-mef'. See more »
When Woody, Wiploc and Zeebo pull up to the gas station a little boy is seen standing far off to the distance at his mother's car. In the next shot he's at the Woody's car with his toy gun pointed at Zeebo and says, " Bang! Bang!" (widescreen version only) See more »

This is one of the fluff movies which one doesn't need to be ashamed of admitting to enjoyment in. No, there's nothing plausible about 90% of the plot, but nor is there any pretense of such, so it's not something worth angsting over. Three fuzzy, colorful aliens crash their little yellow ship into the pool of a young, somewhat vapid Geena Davis, who has recently discovered that her MD. fiance is cheating on her. A quick shave and styling at her friend's beauty parlor transforms the three into less hirsute versions of Goldblum, Carrey and Wayans. Having assimilated at least the appearance of human beings, the aliens enter the world of 80s California, and wackiness, along with the necessary romance, ensues.
As 80s flicks go, this is better than, say, Weird Science or Back to School, though not up to par with things like Caddyshack or A Fish Called Wanda. Nothing essential to go out of your way to see, but certainly worth catching sometime
