THE PLOT:

Valerie is a beautiful girl who just caught her jerk of a finance cheating on her in their own bed. So she throws them both out and after a touching song goes on with her life. Not realizing that not that far away an alien space craft with three aliens are about to change her life forever.

Maclar, Whiploc and Zeebo are three aliens on a very long space voyage. But Whiploc and Zeebo are a slight case of "cabin fever" and seeing Valerie sunbathing drives them over the edge to do something stupid which results in a crash landing in Valerie's swimming pool.

Now while repairs of underway, Valerie and her friend Candy try to entertain the strange visitors from another world. But Ted the jerk could complicate things when he returns to try to regain her affections.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

We all know musicals and comedies work, we also know that science fiction and comedies work. But who knew combining all three genres would work so well. EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY may be a strange title, but it is a great movie. I never thought I'd be saying that when I first saw the trailer when back when but I am hooked on this movie. The cast does a great job, the alien forms are cool. The music is great and the story works. The acting is wonderful and the humor is very funny. The WEST SIDE STORY of Sci-Fi. Now I think Ted was a jerk and a tad annoying, but other then that I think EARTH GIRLS make a fun movie worth watching over and over again. Don't be surprised if you see EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY as a BURIED TREASURE next JULY. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I am also in agreement with EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY. I'm not the biggest fan of the musical. Except for SINGIN' IN THE RAIN. But I got to admit I was impressed, who knew Geena Davis could sing? If that was her voice, but I can't say for certain. Anyway, I love this movie and don't care if it was her or not. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The whole cast does a great job.)
+ STORY (The story works very well.)
+ ALIEN FORM (I love the hairy aliens.)
+ GOOD ALIENS (It's always good to see a visitor from space that doesn't want us dead or enslaved.)
+ MUSIC (The music is wonderful.)
+ ACTING (The acting is perfect.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- TED (I know Ted was the villain and you weren't suppose to like him but he still was annoying at times.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (Some people may not like the unique blend of music, sci-fi and comedy elements.)
