Audience Reviews for Martians Go Home

Martians Go Home.

This is another of those 80's era movies that Critics hate because it does not take itself seriously.

It is a parody of 50's sci-fi Xenophobia that uses second tier comedians to display a picture of a Martian culture that serves only to annoy others when given the chance. The movie gets blasted for using such "talent", but those cast truly do fit the bill to a T. Besides, did the critics really want to see Eddie Murphy or George Carlin toss out obnoxious one lines meant more to irritate than elicit laughter?

It does have kind of a "wizard of Oz" vibe going thought it. Surreal until you want to cry out for home.

If you are into bad cinema such as "The Big Bus" or "Americathon" I highly suggest you give this a spin.

Remember back in college when you'd get drunk or high and everything anyone said or did was funny? This whole movie is like that. It's a low budget piece of shit that I just love.
The scene where the martian pops in on the newscaster saying nuckular cracks me up. I want that to happen to George Bush and everyone else who can't say it right.

Warning: Do not watch this movie without chemical enhancements. Popcorn and Pepsi won't cut it.
