Intended by director Julian Temple and his screenwriters to affectionately skewer Tinseltown lifestyles.

This is deliberately, gleefully vacuous entertainment, and any satirical edge is blunted by the film's obvious affection for its subject.

It is a joyfully chaotic and wildly uneven work that shows Mr. Temple's roots in music videos.

The movie equivalent of cheap champagne -- even though it's lousy, it still gives you tickles up the nose.

A hilarious, off-beat slice of 80s cheese.

Kooky and colorful little cult flick. If you're a fan of anyone in the cast, consider it a curiosity rental.

f there is an idea to this sci-fi (in the worst sense) film, Temple has made clear that it is an unwelcome guest and has sentenced it to solitary confinement.

Only the most strident of advocates for political correctness will take offence at the harmless fun.

All this could be frothy fun or irritating, depending on your taste or mood.

Even running out of steam as it eventually does, there is zany goofball fun for the undiscriminating moviegoer.

Terrible silly. But unforgettable.

An out-of-this-world, down-to-earth comedy adventure.

Good classic movie. An early work from the great Jim Carrey and he was as wacky as he is now. The story was so-so nothing big, it's meant to be funny and entertain and to me it did it's job. Nice ending.

Love amongst the stars is every 'valley' girls dream.... and for Valerie (Geena Davis - The Fly) it's a dream come true when love literally crash lands into her life in the form of intergalactic hardware plunging into her pool. For the three amorous aliens at the helm (Jeff Goldblum - The Fly)(Jim Carrey - Ace Ventura)(Damon Wayans - Blank Man) the sight of an 'earth girl' in the shapely form of Valerie had proved too arousing, letting controls get out of hand!

Life in San Fernando Valley for these three hirsute aliens goes to full thrust when a short back and all over reveals three gorgeous hunks who become the ultimate accessory for every valley girl. But an interplanetary love affair presents Valerie with a dilemma your average valley girl doesn't have to face - love amongst the stars or down in the dumps in L.A!

What a stupid movie! This movie has an excellent cast, but a horrible script. One of the worst movies of the 80s.

An 80's classic! Highlights include; The 'cause I'm a blonde' song, the decade itself and 'He ate my blue finned dork' - 'You just watch your mouth!'
