The camera used to take the photo of the aliens' transformation is a Nishika N8000. It is a special 4-lensed camera designed to produce lenticular 3-D photos after special processing. See more »
When Valerie, Candy and the aliens stop at the club, there is bag of fast-food on the dashboard that wasn't there before. (A deleted scene explains it. In it, Mac extends his arm by feet to pick up the bag; Val asks if he can do that with any part of his body.) See more »

Jim Carrey was certainly showing his comic chops early on
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.
