4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise February 17, 2003
Format:DVD
Coneheads is one of the best "Saturday Night Live" movies. I was expecting a light comedy but what I got was a whole lot more.
Following a similar plot to the skit, Coneheads is the story about the Beldar Conehead family who crash 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.
This is where the movie shows its heart. It could have been a movie of comedy bits but by the end, it is about happiness in a stable family, which is quite refreshing in these days of depressing movies about divorces and unmarried couples. It is nice to see Beldar be a father figure to his daughter rather than the "Let Your Kids Be Who They Are" mentality of these days. The direction of the film in excellent, setting up many nice visual gags and shots that are very impressive for a comedy film. And at times, the film feels "epic" as you see the family on the run from the INS, to moving to the suburbs to returning to their planet.
There are great performances throughout the film and the many cameos are perfect. Look for funny scenes from Jan Hooks, Adam Sandler, Michael Richards, and Garrett Morris. Michelle Burke makes a nice debut as Connie Conehead and I expect to see more of her in the future.
On the surface, this seems like a dumb movie and it has received many poor reviews. But if you sit back and let it take you on an adventure (and if you can keep up with the way the Coneheads use different words for common items) you will be pleasantly surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock on Coneheads! July 20, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This movie was so great! I loved it so much! I love the acts on SNL that they do so I knew I had to rent the movie. I loved this movie so much that I think I'm going to have to buy it! The songs they used on the movie were very good. The Coneheads is a non stop laughing movie. It is great for all ages! I love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars underrated September 20, 2004
Format:DVD
despite the negative reviews, I laughed out loud alot during Coneheads. And the movie is a fairy tale of sorts...despite their VERY obvious differences in appearance & mannerisms, the Coneheads were still treated as equals by their neighbors & friends, and they were able to live in (relative) harmony & mingle amongst the rest of society. Only in the movies! But, it did give the movie a warmer feeling than your typical screwball comedy IMO. Dan Ackroyd is hilarious, and Chris Farley's role makes me miss him even more (not to mention the legendary Phil Hartman, too). I think Coneheads is worth watching...it's nothing heavy, just a breezy but very humorous movie...

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd best SNL film! March 5, 2001
Format:DVD
For those who say SNL has never made a good movie, you're wrong. Coneheads is one of my all time favorites(along with Stuart Smalley Saves his Family and Wayne's World). Dan Ackroyd and all of the supporting cast are excellent. The direction and script are all top-notch and very fitting for the material. You know it's good when you can quote it constantly! So pick it up today, it's just a shame Paramount can't make a decent DVD release. Trailers are cool, but the public needs much more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome with one disappointment! November 25, 1999
By Nel
Format:VHS Tape
I could watch this movie over and over. It has the humor most movies don't have today. There was only one problem. There are parts in the original movie theatre version that are not on the tape. But I do highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Coneheads exactly what it should be. June 5, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The movie incarnation of the Coneheads is perfect. The characters are infused with personality that was not displayed in the original sketches I watched as a teenager. I really enjoyed sharing this movie with my own teenagers. Funny, touching, true to SNL roots but better. I'll be watching this for years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic comedy May 9, 2001
Format:DVD
An exceptionally funny movie. Aykroyd is truely a genius. The script is excellent, taking a series of comedy skits from SNL and turing them into a coherent, well paced film. There are bit parts with great actors, Aykroyd must have tossed bones to all of his friends. What I really like about this film is that it's more than a comedy. The relationship between Akyroyd and his daughter is exceptionally sweet. As an obstetrician the birthing scene kills me. "Beldar, I am with cone", what a riot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic February 17, 2009
Format:DVD
When this film was released in 1993 I was only 7 years old and I can't count the amount of times I have watched this movie since then. Every time it just gives me a nice warm chuckle, yet presents a very good message for the wider movie go'er demographic. Featuring some of the biggest names in American comedy, including the legendary Dan Aykroyd as the main man of the movie, there was no doubting this would be comic gold.

The story focuses around Beldar & Prymatt Conehead who are aliens from another world. Whilst on a scouting mission for planet conquest, they are inadvertently left behind. Whilst waiting to be rescued they decide to adapt to life on Earth and become illegal citizens of America. During that time they have a daughter, are constantly on the run from the INS and try to live a normal American sub-urban life.

Going from the story you are forgiven for thinking that it just sounds like a stupid comedy movie, but the involvement of the great comedy minds are what make this movie work. The adaptation of the aliens into American suburbia is the obvious standout feature of the picture. Beldar (Aykroyd) and Prymatt (Curtin) present a relatively creepy persona of the Conehead aliens, yet what they actually do is present a very accurate idea of illegal immigrants trying to integrate into this suburban lifestyle.

The film is very metaphorical in that respect, as the mixture of the Coneheads culture and ideas with that of Americans is in a sense "Alien" and represents that idea we have of immigrants moving to a strange land. Upon the birth of their daughter Connie (Burke) that American culture becomes even more Alien as their daughter is one of them, but not only that, she's a teenager.
