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!!

Ok, Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum and practically an all star cast make this movie... Not film, movie. This is a fun, feel good, movie. Aliens meet Valley Girls (gag me with a spoon) and run amok in this 1980s classic comedy. Well, comedy just doesn't cut it! Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, Julie Brown (who also co-wrote it) are ALL in it. Why, we don't know. But the worst to come is you'll suffer 80's flashbacks for a while. The basics are three (80's colored) furry aliens stumble to Earth when two of them are horsing around. Much needed repairs must happen before they can leave and much needed shore leave, or so to speak, must give them... uh, a much needed, release? Must have been the 80's where these guys come from too. Julie is the salon matron and maven of blonde who is recruited to make the aliens a little less, uh, well, alien. She Nair's 'em silly and stiles their hair so any 80's dude would have serious issues with envy and finds these guys are killer! The kick is Julie's 80s smash (or crash?) hit, "'Cause I'm A Blonde" is headlined too. in the film Fun, fun, fun flick!
