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.
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!
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.
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.

Such a great flashback to the 80's. Young Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum was real eye candy. Add a quirky plot, and it makes for a fun evening.Published 11 days ago by I. Pritsak
