Production was halted during a scene where a woman backs into a cactus, because the director didn't think the cactus needles were reading on film. The needles were ultimately coated with clear nail polish. See more »

Jim Carrey was certainly showing his comic chops early on
20 May 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Everyone loves a good (or bad) alien movie, and "Earth Girls Are Easy" doesn't disappoint. Valerie (Geena Davis) is an every-woman in southern California whose life is turned upside down when three aliens, Mac (Jeff Goldblum), Wiploc (Jim Carrey) and Zeebo (Damon Wayans), land in her swimming pool. She quickly gets them made up to look human, but they continue acting like non-humans. She has to explain sex to Mac, while Wiploc and Zeebo are still wacky.

In a way, the whole movie is an excuse to be silly. But believe you me, they come up with some really funny stuff (Jim Carrey does a great James Dean impression). You'll wish that some aliens could land in your swimming pool, or wherever near your house.
