Movie Info

The 1987 portmanteau comedy feature Amazon Women on the Moon lampoons several film genres in general and the 1954 sci-fi cheapie Cat Women of the Moon in particular. Other sketches in Amazon Women include an opening bit with Arsenio Hall; a vignette titled "Son of the Invisible Man" wherein a naked Ed Begley Jr. runs around in full view of the nonplussed supporting cast; the It's Alive parody "Hospital", which offers the spectacle of Michelle Pfeiffer giving birth to Mr. Potato Head; and a

Amazon Women on the Moon is irreverent, vulgar and silly and has some hilarious moments and some real groaners too.

Slim pickings.

An anarchic, often hilarious adventure in dial-spinning, a collection of brief skits and wacko parodies that are sometimes quite clever, though they're just as often happily sophomoric, too.

Satirists are in trouble when their subjects are funnier than they are.

More hits then misses in this collection of skits. To my knowledge, the Loch Ness Monster is still on the loose.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

The material is uneven; some of it is very funny while other skits fall flat.

Anthology comedy that is not without its charms

A guilty pleasure!

Not many funny skits in this anthology.

Like Kentucky Fried Movie, the premise ... is a series of comedy vignettes ... nowhere near as clever or funny, although it certainly has some laudable moments.

Like an R-rated episode of "Saturday Night Live," some of the bits are drop-dead hilarious. Others are pin-drop pathetic.

Audience Reviews for Amazon Women on the Moon

Sometimes very silly and not so funny, but with a interesting entertaining, just like the cast, Amazon Women on the Moon, have a kind of charm bring a few comic actings, just like the sketch of Arsenio Hall. Fresh.

As much as I like Joe Dante, I can only like a few of the jokes in his sketches; the work of the other guys is even worse. Landis' sketch with Arsenio seems to want to take black upward mobility down a notch with a couple old stereotypes. Ed Begley, Rosanna Arquette, Carrie Fisher and Andrew Dice Clay don't come off bad.

If you liked The Kentucky Fried Movie, you'll love Amazon Women on the Moon! This spoof movie is hilarious, outrageous, timely, and full of interesting film people to look for too. I love this movie, it's one of my favourite spoof films, and I highly recommend it.

A wacky late-night television film festival which has a hilarious main feature "Amazon Women on the Moon" and flips around to other channels and shows on the cable dial. Many of the jokes are hit or miss, but I was quite entertained. An SCTV fan like me really liked it.
