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 »
When Valerie picks up Ted's LPs, the cover of one of his speakers is missing, but in the shot where Valerie is lying on the couch tossing them into the fire, both speakers have covers. See more »
Okay you guys, what's the plan for tonight?
Whoa, Candy, reality check. We can't go out with these guys, they're aliens!
So? They can still be dates!

There is something about the standard eighties film that is quite unique, they seem more light and fluffy than the films released these days. Even better, they seemed to attract fairly big name stars of that time...This is not a great film, but it is what it is. It's light hearted, funny, has some interesting musical interludes and outrageous costumes and is one of Jim carrey's earlier films. There is not much of a story but the slight premise it is based on is still entertaining. Would recommend to any child of the eighties!
