Storyline

Three furry (and funny) aliens travel around the universe in a spaceship and receive a broadcast showing human females. They are fascinated by these shapely creatures and discover that the broadcast came from Southern California on Earth. Meanwhile, Valley girl Valerie Gail feels her cold fiancé Dr. Ted Gallagher is slipping away and decides to seduce him. Instead, she catches him cheating on her with a nurse, throws him out, smashes his things and refuses to see him again. The aliens' spaceship crash lands in Valerie's swimming pool - putting a decided damper on her future wedding plans in Las Vegas. She brings them into her home; and the aliens prove to be quick learners and absorb American popular culture and language through television. Written by Mark Harding <mah@imdb.com>

Enormous fun!
26 May 1999 | by TuckMNSee all my reviews

One of the films that fits into the category of Just Fun.

While you could never call this a musical there are definitely lots of great musical numbers in it.

Geena Davis has a star turn as the vapid Valley Girl Valerie. I laughed at the fact she spent most of the movie wearing the tiniest bikini imaginable. But BOY can she pull it off.

Julie Brown as Candy the proprietor of the Curl Up and Dye beauty salon was a treasure. She always makes me laugh and I always want to see more of her.

Micheal McKean as Woody once again shows his amazing versatility. Just compare him in this movie to his role in "Airheads" and you will see just how wildly divergent he can be.

Frankly, I didn't recognize him.

This film is high camp and pulls it off well because it never takes itself seriously.

Not being a big Jim Carrey fan when Valerie tells Wiploc that she will miss him least of all I always want to cheer.

See this and have a good time.
