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! Written by

[after discovering that the Martians read minds and then blab your innermost secrets to your friends and neighbors]
It was like being invaded by people in your fourth-grade ethics textbook.

I liked the book, and thought that the movie was one of the very rare instances in which the movie made parts of it better (the choice of final annoying song and dance number, turning the Martians from all looking alike into a troupe of mostly talented stand-up comedians, the method of sending them home).
Still, the fact that a sci-fi comedy book from over 50 years ago could be made into an even remotely entertaining and relevant movie says a lot about the quality of the novel.
It's not Spaceballs, Hitchhiker's Guide, or Galaxy Quest, but it's still mostly funny.
Plus, I always love Gerrit Graham.
