Classic!!!
24 October 2004 | by HwrightcaSee all my reviews

This movie is on the top of my list for must get a copy of!! My TV tape is long since been worn out. I would love to find a good copy on DVD.

Many people mentioned the stereotypes and how offensive it is...geez...its kinda the point with this movie. I mean when the alien chick pulls the "kiss? What's kiss?" line, you gotta know they were going for parody city here!

My favorite thing is the long pauses between dialoge with Philbert and the poor mic treatment. It sounds like they had only one boom for a huge room so everyones voices are picked up at different levels...pretty funny.

I give this one two snaps in Z formation. It is that good!
