This late-'80s comedy-musical from video director Julien Temple (Absolute Beginners) has an infectiously buoyant if dumb charm and plays like a cross between Little Shop of Horrors and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. If you loved either of those movies, you'll have a fondness for this one, otherwise you'll be irritated beyond belief. Geena Davis stars as a San Fernando Valley manicurist who finds herself in charge of three aliens after they crash-land their spaceship in her pool. With said transport broken down, Davis offers them head-to-toe makeovers (it's the least she can do), turns the fuzzy aliens into a trio of attractive guys, and lets them loose on the dating scene. She promptly falls in love with the leader (Davis's then-husband Jeff Goldblum); of course, it helps that her slimy fiancé (Charles Rocket) is cheating on her left and right. Aside from its sunny California charm, the only other thing this film has to offer is a bouncy musical score, in particular two show-stopping numbers performed by costar (and the film's cowriter) Julie Brown: "Brand New Girl," in which Davis gets the requisite makeover ("If you want to be a femme fatale / You can't rest on your L'Oreals!"), and the entirely irrelevant but absolutely hilarious cult hit "'Cause I'm a Blonde." Davis does her standard airhead thing (still a novelty in 1989) and Goldblum is a studly if silent lead. Make sure you pay close attention to Goldblum's alien sidekicks, two then-unknown actors named Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans, both of whom manage to steal scenes with surprisingly understated charm. --Mark Englehart

This movie is crayon colorful in its outlook and its sophistication. Stars Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum are joined by relative unknowns Jim Carrey and Daymon Wayans in a romp through Southern California. Puns, silliness, sex jokes (it's PG so they're not lewd), satire, and some of Julie Brown's funniest songs are highlights.

Mac (Goldblum) is captain of an alien space ship that crash lands in Valerie's (Davis) pool because of the antics of his sexually deprived side kicks Wiploc (Carrey) and Zeebo (Wayans). The three hairy spacemen cheerfully turn Valerie's life from a disaster to. . . absolute chaos.

Julie Brown (Candy) and Michael McKean (Woody) steal the show with wonderful bits. When Candy wins "this month's Miss August" and sings "I'm a Blonde" listen and rewind to hear it again. It's a hoot! You won't recognize McKeen, from "Laverne and Shirley", "This is Spinal Tap" or, more recently, "A Mighty Wind." He makes a delightful Woody: the pool man with a surfing obsession and the IQ of a carrot. This DVD would be a good first step toward your own Michael McKean movie collection.

I originally saw this movie in 1989 as part of a Women's Movie Festival, Brown shares author credits. "Earth Girls are Easy" is based on her song of the same name. This is the movie I watch when I want a cheer-me-up.

"Earth Girls Are Easy" is a musical sci-fi comedy about valley-girl Valerie (played by Geena Davis) living in 1980's Los Angeles, and who is engaged to a cheating, boyfriend doctor named Ted (played by Charles Rocket). Catching her boyfriend at home playing with a nurse, the disgruntled Valerie gets the surprise of her life when a spaceship crash lands in her swimming pool. The spaceship's crew (played by Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans), haven't had any "shore leave" in a long time. Not wanting to cause too much of a stir, Valerie takes the alien trio to her best friend Candy (played by Julie Brown) who owns a beauty salon. After Candy transforms the furry trio into believable human males, Valerie finds their captain, Mac (Jeff Goldblum), very attractive. Wild things happen when the alien trio are taken to a dance club and letting them drive in California traffic!
The fact that this film is also a musical only adds to the humor as there are several original songs by Julie Brown!
If you enjoy remembering the excesses of the 1980's and New Wave music, you will probably enjoy this film!

If you like 'em that way too, then this is the movie for you!
Four very strong leads - Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum and then unknown Jim Carrey and Damon Williams - backed up by Julie Brown deliver a paper-thin story with humor, bright colors and an ineffable sexiness. I think this was an attempt to revive musical-comedy cinema in the late '80s; the previous shining example being "Xanadu". The songs are original, funny and have enjoyed cult status ever since.
This is one of the first movies to show that inter-planetary romances don't have to end with an ova-depositor rammed down your throat.
I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys turing their minds off for an hour and a half of fun.

As I sat down to be exposed to Earth Girls are Easy for the first time, I prepared myself for some of the most painful cinematography known to man. Little did I know, I was about to be exposed to one of the most delightfully entertaining and funny movies I have ever seen.
Geena Davis, Jim Carey, Jeff Goldblum and Damon Wayans took a script destined for disaster and somehow created a masterpiece in its own right. The aliens, the musicals, the outlandish props and stupid plot all combined to create one amazingly entertaining movie. It is amazing to see the actors that I mentioned when they were much younger and barely known in the industry, and to see them take such a weird movie to such a high level really displays their raw talent and shows why they eventually make it so big in the industry.
I would highly recommend this movie to anyone wanting to see or show something different, bizarre and totally fun. It certainly is not an ordinary or normal movie, but then again, it was the 80s.

A comedy with Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblom, Jim Carey, Damon Wayans...COME ON!! It is hilarious!! It is so American! Its so stupid its funny!! Julie Brown's song, "Cuz I'm a Blonde" is so laughable. If you are in the mood to just laugh & not have to think about it, "Earth Girls Are Easy" is the best movie!! It is a definate, best kept secret, cult classic!!

This is a quite funny movie which strangely many people are not familiar with. Jim Carrey has a small role as well, and you see hints as to why he became such a big star in "physical comedies." Geena Davis plays a 20 something "Valley Girl", living with her boyfriend, when a spaceship crashes into her backyard swimming pool. She and her best friend befriend "eventually" human looking three men, who have various adventures in the Valley. Geena Davis spends quite a bit of the movie in a bikini which is not hard on the eyes either. Really, a very funny movie.
