    Two strange looking aliens are sent on a mission to Hollywood to procreate with earth girls to maintain their species since their planet will be destroyed in 500 years. Crude dialogue and tedious plot.

    Interesting in a daft sense, any excuse for nudity!

    Movies don't get much worse than this. Plenty of laughs throughout. I enjoyed it.

    How do you even assess this movie? It's softcore seventies porno of the cheapest, cheesiest variety. Aliens come to Earth to impregnate random women in the middle of coitus with very seventies-looking men via their nose penises. It's very strange, it's very stupid, and yet I couldn't stop laughing. It really is like porno that was made by characters from a Jared Hess movie, the dialogue insanely awkward in its delivery, and the things that the aliens say are beyond strange, it's as though the sex dialogue was written by a ten-year-old boy who just discovered lewd language and the concept of fornicating. There is a scene where the aliens wander the streets of L.A. that my roommate turned to me and said that it looked like the best example of no-budget, no-permit guerrilla filmmaking he'd seen, and I think that's true. Everyone that walks by the aliens reacts the way a person would react if they saw a couple of morons dressed like aliens wandering down the sidewalk, these aren't real extras, they're people going about their daily lives, and that sequence highlights the joy of watching low-budget movies from this time frame. Don't get me wrong, WHAM BAM THANK YOU SPACEMAN has no value what-so-ever, but I was giggling like an idiot the entire time because what I was witnessing was bad taste at its nadir, which is probably a compliment.

    Not sexy enough, not weird enough, not funny enough. Goodbye, seventies.

    Really really funny, but things just got old in the end. It was almost like someone interspersed an soft core porn version of it's a small world after all with alien scenes in a space ship. If there had been more alien/human interaction and less prolonged foreplay shots, it would have been a four star-er.

    Trust me it's terrible, but it's a fun and entertaining watch. I mean the names of the aliens are worth alone veiwing this film for.
