Storyline

Song writer Mark Devereaux accidentally calls millions of green Martians to invade Earth. No they aren't dangerous, just wise-cracking, intrusive, pain in neck, annoyances. No one can escape their distracting influence. It's up to Mark to figure out how they got here, and most importantly, how to get rid of them before they drive everyone crazy!

and take this movie with you
18 December 1999 | by pandrSee all my reviews

A classic, if light, SF comedy novel becomes a tired and dragging mess. Some writers and directors have the talent and ability to overcome the limitations of a low budget, to show what they are capable of - but in this film there is nothing to suggest they could ever raise themselves above straight to video and 3am showings.
