So silly, so fluffy, so utterly ridiculous. And yet I absolutely love it. It always makes me laugh when I see reviews of this film that say things like “what the hell is this ridiculous thing??” because they’ve missed the entire point of the film. It’s SUPPOSED to be ridiculous. That was the point. It’s obvious while watching it (to anyone with half a brain, anyways) that this film isn’t meant to be taken seriously. It’s a musical about horny, furry aliens who crash land in a ditzy valley-girl’s pool, and she shows them around town and stuff. Just hearing that synopsis should be enough to tell you that it’s not a serious film. But it’s great fun. Not all the songs are good (I always skip “Cause I’m a Blonde“), but there aren’t that many, most of the dialogue is spoken, so I guess it’s not a true musical, hehe. Best part of the film? When Jeff Goldblum steps out of the machine at the hair salon (after having a full body shave). Hubba hubba… Great fun, it gets a solid 8/10.
This film is currently streaming on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it and are looking for a good laugh, I reccomend it 🙂
