Earth Girls Are Easy (1988)

Leave a comment

egaeValerie (Geena Davis) is  a young beautician about to marry a doctor. His attention toward her has been waning and in an attempt to spice things up, Valerie gets a complete makeover and plans to surprise him. Instead of renewed romance she catchers her fiancé cheating! Distraught, she kicks him out of their shared home and promptly and comically destroys everything of importance in their home. Valerie is tanning and relaxing, like you do, the next day when suddenly Mac, Wiploc, and Zeebo (Goldblum, Carrey, and Wayans) crash land their alien spaceship right into her pool.  Next step? Curl up and Dye salon to wax the aliens and find them some hip threads. The three men(?) are of course hunky and Valerie and her friend go clubbing to celebrate their job well done.

I refuse to give you the ending or spoil anything else. I discovered this 1988 gem while attending a Jeff Goldblum movie marathon hosted by a friend just this year.  Every second is filled with eighties nostalgia (and tackiness). I think I must have yelled that this was my new favorite movie ten times before it was over.  Check this title out immediately if you missed it. You will not be disappointed.

Check the PPLC Catalog for Earth Girls Are Easy.
