User Reviews

One of the best cheesy movies of all time!!!
17 November 2006 | by dhiguera_bcnSee all my reviews

Alien private eye is so hilarious you will not believe your eyes and ears. This movie is a perfect 80's time capsule,it has everything,from bad clothes to hideous decoration. The plot(if it has one) is simple:a guy who looks like a pimp but it's a p.i from another planet (with pointed ears and stuff) helps a girl who has to find a disk that contains a powerful drug ???? The rest is simply amazing:kung fu fights,macho showing off,soft core,"noir" style scenes,posing,some special effects and surrealistically bad dialog.That's it! It is strongly recommended to MST3K fans and fans of bad cinema in particular.It is so charming that you will love every minute of it.That's its only redeeming point:it is a entertaining movie, always moving on. And that's a thing you can't say of the last Spielberg movies,by the way...
