Three furry (and funny) aliens travel around the universe in a spaceship and receive a broadcast showing human females. They are fascinated by these shapely creatures and discover that the broadcast came from Southern California on Earth. Meanwhile, Valley girl Valerie Gail feels her cold fiancé Dr. Ted Gallagher is slipping away and decides to seduce him. Instead, she catches him cheating on her with a nurse, throws him out, smashes his things and refuses to see him again. The aliens' spaceship crash lands in Valerie's swimming pool - putting a decided damper on her future wedding plans in Las Vegas. She brings them into her home; and the aliens prove to be quick learners and absorb American popular culture and language through television. Written by

When Candy and Valerie cruised down the boulevard with the aliens, Candy performed the song "I Like 'em Big and Stupid" in the back of the convertible. The sequence was cut (but later unearthed as a DVD extra) and a different recording of the song was dubbed into the sound mix for the club scene. This deleted scene formed the basis of the Britney Spears music video "Pretty Girls," which was acknowledged as "inspired by" the film. See more »

In the close-up shot Candy's reply she is holding a pink mirror and a hairspray bottle. See more »
It's cute.... it's bouncy.... it's fluff.... but it's mindless entertainment for a few hours.... See it!
Geena Davis is perfect as the quirky female lead.... Just enough of a ditz to be believable.... and yet strong enough, too...
Jeff Goldblum - well, he's kind of typical in this role... Like W. Shatner, Jeff has a particular way of speaking.... and this film shows it... But his acting was good and he was semi believable as a lovable alien... And, he was kind of hunky in that scene....
Jim Carrey & Damon Wayons - these 2 guys are 90% funny 90% of the time... they were classic on 'IN LIVING COLOR' and both have gone on to have decent careers in the years since.... The woodie on the freeway is hilarious!
Julie Brown - no other big-boobed-blonde could have EVER pulled this off! And, her songs from the film - 'Cuz I'm a Blonde, I Like 'em Big and Stupid
are just the best ... I don't have to work I just have to jiggle.....
While the story line may be cheesey and seem like a leftover that sat a bit too long, it's cute fluff and worth a view...
