Storyline

An alien couple known as Beldar and Prymatt with cone-shaped heads from the planet called Remulak is mistakenly ditched on earth, during a scouting mission for planet conquest. While here, they dodge the INS, have a child and discover that life on Earth is quite good. But unfortunately they are being chased by the government who knows something is not quite right with the Conehead family. After they are rescued and taken back to their planet, Beldar vows to return to earth and conquer it. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Did You Know?

Trivia

When Beldar asks in the motel office, "Where can I obtain a helium grafting device operable at eight fathoms?," it is a reference to Prymat's frequent discouragements that he crashed their spaceship below water in the Jersey sound and is repairing the ship. See more »

Goofs

In the scene at the swim meet, you can clearly see that Connie does not have the Gorelks at the small of her back, which all Coneheads have. These are two handle-like growths, which can be seen on Beldar in his shower scene at the golf club. See more »

Return of "SNL" classic characters!
25 October 2008 | by GOWBTWSee all my reviews

Remember the "Coneheads" on SNL(Saturday Night Live)? Well, they are back! This time on the big screen. Beldar(Dan Ackroyd) and Prymatt(Jane Curtain) are on Earth planning to commit world conquest. But, when they settle on the planet they decided to live their lives there instead. They have such strange diets, and they claim themselves they are from "France". The government however don't think so. They later give birth to a daughter named Connie(Michelle Burke). She has a little trouble fitting in, until she meets Ronnie(Chris Farley, 1964-97). I liked the Subway scene where Connie puts away a sub which made Ronnie's mother look like an amateur. Looks like he found his dream girl there. When they go back to there planet, Beldar used his talents from Earth to stop a monster, while singing Soft Cell's "Tained Love". Great cast, silly plot, this movie is good for all SNL fans. Some say it was rather late, I would say, "Who Cares?" 2.5 out of 5 Stars!
