...............this is simply put, the worst movie, I have ever seen.
October 30, 2007
If the movie still manages to be funny in moments, it's totally due to the colorful gallery of performers. The problem with Coneheads is that it's basically a one-joke movie stretched to the limit with numerous mutations and reverberations. Coneheads falls flat about as often as it turns funny, and displays more amiability than style. The movie is a nutball jamboree of sight gags, verbal gags, and pure helium daffiness. The story is without purpose; there's nothing for us to care about, even in a comedic way. All very odd, and well-acted, as Aykroyd and Curtin talk like voice synthesizers and walk like robots. Not all sketches are destined for feature length; "Coneheads" has essentially taken nine minutes of material and multiplied the running time by 10 while adding nothing to the inspiration. The movie starts out okay, but it's hard to keep a story this thin going for long, and by the half-hour point (around the time that Connie Conehead is born), it becomes obvious that the decision to create a full-length feature out of this subject material was a colossal mistake.
VERDICT: "Not So Hot" - [Negative Reaction] These films are truly terrible films. They are not the worst things ever made, but they are definitely awful and should not be seen by anyone. (Films that are rated 1.5 or 2 stars)

"Coneheads" is exactly what you expect it to be. While it isn't the highest quality film, it is perfect for a few braindead Sunday afternoon laughs. The best part of the film is the endless string of comedian cameos: David Spade, Chris Farley, Sinbad, Michael Richards, Adam Sandler, Jason Alexander, Drew Carey, Ellen, Dave Thomas, John Lovitz, and more! Even the fact that nobody ever questions the shape of these aliens' heads is a hilarious social commentary on how political correctness has taken over the world. While it is good for a few laughs, "Coneheads" is still dumb. The acting is about as good as you would expect from robotic-speaking aliens and there isn't really any character development. The story takes an interesting turn as we actually get to see the planet of Remulak, but it's all very predictable. I probably wouldn't watch "Coneheads" again, but it was worth seeing once.

Coneheads is yet another nostalgic childhood film of mine which for the most part still holds up. Brimming with an all-star cast of comedic celebrities, Coneheads is a purposely ridiculous, often hilarious but occasionally flawed comedy. At times the humor is a little too ridiculous and fails to land, but thankfully in return this gripe is compensated with genuinely hilarious moments as well. Boasting memorable parts like the Subway sandwich scene and more, Coneheads is a unique and thoroughly entertaining watch.

One of the greatest things to come from SNL.

A clever concept and it has its funny moments, but generally a little too silly to be taken seriously.

The worst,most ridiculous movie ever made. Dan aykroyd have several good comedies but he crossed the line with this trash of cinema,

Couldn't even watch a half hour of this trash. SNL's great, but this was so stupid and dumb, I couldn't stand it.
Basically the plot's centering on an alien family with cone shaped heads based on an old SNL sketch who pose as an all-American family, despite their odd cravings and behavior.
This may or may not be an unfair review, I got as far as the daughter, Connie, doing teen stuff and hanging around with Chris Farley, but the characters' annoying alien monotone voices are incredibly unbearable and it's odd and completely unfunny to watch. I can't name one part I laughed at. Awful movie.

"Coneheads" is the best of what I call the stretch-a-sketch ideas that somehow dredged up sufficient material for a movie. More than a few funny moments disguise what's pretty much too much of a good thing. Most of what pretends to be funny is sophomoric at best, so be forewarned. Worth a look for SNL fans old and new, but definitely proof you can't go home again and again and again and again.

Gets really annoying half through which makes it hard to actually pay attention to the movie as a whole.

Very underrated SNL Comedy. Its inventive, its silly, its unpractical. What more could you really need?

There are some funny moments, but this movie also kind of disturbs me. (First and only full viewing - Late teen years)

Based off the SNL sketch, "Coneheads" is a fair comedy film. The acting & character development lacked at times (not constantly, just scarcely), but I found this film quite funny; at first, I was not really appeased (but that was 7-8 years ago). "Coneheads" can be quite enjoyable to some; it was pretty good & funny.

Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin are aliens who come to earth in preparation for an earth takeover, however, things do not go as they planned and they have to adapt to their surrounds. Sounds like a good idea, but the jokes are few and far between, and the script isn't that great either. It feels very random. There are a lot of cameos though Waste of a good idea.

An underrated classic (and a clever if unintended commentary on immigration, assimilation, the American dream, and so on; having the daughter born here I feel is a great touch and an improvement compared to the TV sketches). Is my family the only family that likes this?
