Can you inflate a gimmick-driven comedy skit into a full-fledged feature film? Up to a point.

A sweet, funny anarchic pastiche that should find broad based popularity.

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.

This is a dismal, dreary and fairly desperate movie, in which the actors try very hard but are unable to overcome an uninspired screenplay.

I expected stupid humor, silly humor, or bizarre humor, but not no humor.

Curtin and Aykroyd rely on old standbys... When that doesn't work, which mostly it doesn't, they try grossing us out with a series of revolting Remulakian childbirth jokes.
