Low budget Sci-Fi sex spoof
16 December 1998 | by SMK-4See all my reviews

Apparently made on a shoe-string budget (we are in Ed Wood territory here) this is an insignificant little sex comedy about three nerds who are trying to get their astronomy teacher (Maria Baxa) into bed by pretending to be aliens. Their alien outfit has to be seen to be believed (especially the phallic headgear), the story is extremely implausible, we have to endure the antics of Jimmy the Phenomenon, but in a strange way the film is rather pleasant to watch. It's very camp, of course, but it also has more heart than you'd expect from an exploitation film.
