A trio of aliens crash their spaceship into a valley girl's swimming pool and she falls in love with one of the extra-terrestrial beings.
A campy cult hit which I just didn't 'get'.
Is it supposed to be a satire of how superficial hollywood is? All I seemed to witness was 90 odd minutes of Geena Davis swanning around in tight swimsuits, Jeff Goldblum pouting a lot and Jim Carrey & Damon Wayans being generally annoying. There's a load of terrible 80's songs too. I just don't get the appeal of it at all.
