Storyline

Song writer Mark Devereaux accidentally calls millions of green Martians to invade Earth. No they aren't dangerous, just wise-cracking, intrusive, pain in neck, annoyances. No one can escape their distracting influence. It's up to Mark to figure out how they got here, and most importantly, how to get rid of them before they drive everyone crazy!

So unfunny it's...unfunny.
25 December 2010 | by (Mars) – See all my reviews

Not the worst movie I have ever seen, but close (that dubious honour is split between Cheerleader Ninjas and Space Thing). Martians come to town and annoy the f*** out of humans. That's it for the idea. Apparently the book is much, MUCH better.

The good things I have to say are few, but I need this bit for you to be able to read this: the director knows how to point a camera, get a scene edited to his liking, and at least not rely on ridiculous amounts of fart jokes and dildoes (both Cheerleader Ninjas references).

And to the person that was suggesting that we were wrong to call this movie bad Sci-fi: You're very wrong. We acknowledge that this movie is not particularly scientific. The problem is that it's bad COMEDY.
