Product Overview

"Chaos reigns supreme in this inventive, hilarious comedy" (Leonard Maltin) about a quartet of oddball aliens who take a wrong turn and crash-land their glorified RV spaceship on a freeway on Earth! "The gags are flung at you like darts" (The Washington Post) in this "bracingly impolite, parodistic comedy" (L.A. Herald-Examiner) that proves--hilariously--that the mind is a terrible thing in space. When four extra-terrestrials--without on iota of extra-intelligence--accidentally maroon themselves on Earth, the authorities want them exterminated. But with the help of a shrewd news reporter, they instead become media darlings...and parlay their fame into out-of-this-world rock'n'roll stardom! Playing to sold-out arenas of adoring fans, the IQ-challenged ETs try to make the party last all night long...or at least until their annoyed mother ship arrives to whisk them back into space for good!

Editors Note
Note A pair of extraordinarily boring and untalented aliens crash-land on earth, and become overnight pop superstars. A tongue-in-cheek look at earthlings' fascination with things alien.
