Pea-brained would-be sci-fi comedy.
7 June 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Even at age 10 I felt like the Mayor of Moronville for actually staying up late and sitting through this gonzo flick. Something of a sci-fi genre parody, it has the usual bumbling male leads falling all over themselves trying to gain the adoration of some comely moon-cuties. On the prowl in this schlock are a couple of lumbering fellows in Danskin tights with potato sacks on their heads(the so-called "Star Creatures" of the title)

For even aspiring to be as little as lowbrow camp, this is actually a pretty rough ride. If I had seen this at a drive-in in 1963, I surely would have driven my vehicle full-speed through the movie screen in a fit of consternation(or at least demanded my eighty cents back). Perhaps today, as an adult, I'd have a better time with "Invasion of the Star Creatures"(Bacardi 151 in hand, of course...)

**UPDATE, May 2010** I did indeed revisit this sub-B movie, and as I suspected, it actually IS a more worthy watch today as a cultural artifact. One particular line of dialog is exemplary of this -

"...wow...that's the first time a salad's ever tossed *ME*!".

That one probably brought forth a few weak chuckles in '63...presently, some folks might fall on the floor in hysterics...

3.5/10
