No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Can you inflate a gimmick-driven comedy skit into a full-fledged feature film? Up to a point.
Coneheads falls flat about as often as it turns funny, and displays more amiability than style.
A respectably funny -- but small -- effort, a reunion party best watched in your living room, while you consume mass quantities of pizza with extra molten lactate extract of hooved mammals.
I expected stupid humor, silly humor, or bizarre humor, but not no humor.
Whether on Earth or in space, the jokes are either flat or hopelessly crude.
Its transition to the big screen suggests an idea that was plotted on the back of a beer mat when the creators were too pickled to stand up straight. One wishes they had passed out before they were so inspired.
This film went so wrong somewhere, the
Better-than-average SNL spin-off, and unfortunately the best thing Aykroyd's done sice Ghostbusters.
It should have remained a skit on SNL
The film itself is like the cinematic equivalent of a clothesline, with a steady stream of skits and gags hung out to dry.
A new spin on the original skit with some fresh stars like Sinbad and McKean plus a generous special effects budget fill in the gaps when the movie flags.
