Coneheads

Critics Consensus

Listless, crude, and overall uninspired, Coneheads offers further evidence that stretching an SNL sketch to feature length can be tougher than narfling a garthok.

Movie Info

Cone-headed extraterrestrials Beldar (Dan Aykroyd) and Prymaat (Jane Curtin) find themselves in New Jersey after a recon mission for their home planet of Remulak goes awry. Stranded, they are forced to live as typical suburban humans. Beldar gets a job, and daughter Connie (Michelle Burke) grows up to be a typical, if oddly shaped, teenager. When INS agents start investigating the family and Beldar receives sinister orders from Remulak, the Coneheads must decide where their allegiance lies.

    There's something funny and original here, but the set piece story beats are over the top and too much. Film is incoherent at times and is easily identifiable as a SNL skit transitioned to film. This is best enjoyed as a guilty pleasure and not critiquing it. It has a lot of strong comedians in the cast, essentially paving the way for their future. I suspect this will have gained some sort of cult gatherers since it's timely flop at the box office. Funny film that passes the time, but just not solid enough or quirky enough to be called a genuine cult gem. 23/12/2019

    Coneheads is mildly amusing here and there, unfortunately the script suffers from a good, engaging plot; therefore the film ends up being a mediocre comedy with unsatisfying results. Coneheads has a few laughs here and there, but for the most part, the result is uneven comedy that has many jokes that simply fall flat. Coneheads could have been a good comedy, but because of an awful script, the film doesn't cut it. I think it's a shame because there's a good comedic cast that director Steve Barron has at hand here, but they don't seem to go nowhere. The film is a mess, and a waste of time. I think it's too bad because this film had the potential of being a good, fun comedy. Not even the good cast of comedians can save this film that is sloppily written. Coneheads is a missed opportunity and even though there are some funny cast members here, they are wasted on-screen and can't save this film. Though mildly amusing at times, the jokes found in Coneheads fall flat and are unfunny. This had the potential of being a funny comedy; unfortunately it ends up being a mediocre film with barely any laughs. The cast like I said, is wasted on such poorly written material, it's a great shame. Coneheads could have been a good comedy, but the script had barely any potential for making this film work. Coneheads is a disappointing, mediocre film that could have been far better than this.

    SNL madness but oh what glorious madness this is with an epic cast of comedy greats and character actors...,Aykroyd, Spade, Farley, Lovitz, Hartman, Sandler, Griffin, Sinbad, Drew Carey, Tom Arnold, Whip Hubley, Posey, DeGeneres and Jane Curtain, quite the list there. The film itself is virtually B-movie in essence and doesn't hide the fact with crazy over the top acting and cheesy looking effects which at the same time do still kinda hold up today. The sequences where Aykroyd gets his teeth capped and the fight against the 'Rancor' type monster in the finale are fantastic examples of bad/good effects. The whole film is that classic wacky genius you expect with Aykroyd and his unique thinking along with his amazing ability to reel off large segments of dialog without pause or fault. Other stars have a good time here too, especially Farley who strangely enough is the main love interest in the film and great little cameos from Sandler and Lovitz, nothing that hilarious but its funny. Its such a silly, basic, childish plot and idea but its been so well directed and lovingly created with that good old fashioned SNL 80's originated comedy that it just can't fail to win.
