Caught this one on cable. Sometimes you start watching these movies you've never heard of and you cross your fingers and hope for the best. More often that not, you're let down. This one starts slow, is a mishmash of genres, but if you stick to it you'll realize that the film makers made this one with tongue firmly in cheek, and it's hilarious. Julie Brown and George Wendt give charming, scenery chewing performances as vigilante aliens who become sheriffs of a small western town. It's not too often you can see a German foreign exchange student getting his rocks off while spying on a black guy having sex with an alien in the same movie where a hillbilly is torn limb from limb between two cop cars as punishment for driving drunk. There's a sense of playfulness and over the top twisted humor that's been absent from feature films since the heyday of Monty Python.
