Earth Girls Are Easy

“Cuz I’m a blonde,
B-L-O-N-D.
Cuz I’m a blonde,
Don’t you wish you were me?”

In this out-of-this-world 80’s musical comedy adventure that revels in its own 80’s-era So-Cal chic, Geena Davis plays Valerie, a manicurist living in the valley with her cold fiancé, Dr. Ted Gallagher. At the Curl Up and Dye beauty salon where she works, Valerie enlists the help of her boss, Candy Pink, for some style advice to try and win back Ted’s affections. After undergoing a brand-new hairstyle, Valerie learns that Ted is having an affair and she kicks him out of the house. Soon, while lounging around in her bikini, a spaceship from the planet Jhazzalan crash-lands in her swimming pool. Curious, Valerie befriends the ship’s inhabitants — three horny aliens covered in fur named Mac, Whiploc, and Zeebo. Introducing her new friends to Candy, the aliens get a shave and a total makeover transformation into hot, available dates. They all go out dancing at L.A. nightclubs and party. With Jeff Goldblum, Julie Brown, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, and Charles Rocket.

“This is deliberately, gleefully vacuous entertainment, and any satirical edge is blunted by the film’s obvious affection for its subject.” (Time Out)
