A Pleasant Surprise
Brian A. Wolters | Cabot, Arkansas | 02/17/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Coneheads is one of the best "Saturday Night Live" movies. I was expecting a light comedy but what I got was a whole lot more.Following a similar plot to the skit, Coneheads is the story about the Beldar Conehead family who crash on earth during a scouting mission for planet conquest. While here, they dodge the INS, have a child and discover that life on Earth is quite good. This is where the movie shows its heart. It could have been a movie of comedy bits but by the end, it is about happiness in a stable family, which is quite refreshing in these days of depressing movies about divorces and unmarried couples. It is nice to see Beldar be a father figure to his daughter rather than the "Let Your Kids Be Who They Are" mentality of these days. The direction of the film in excellent, setting up many nice visual gags and shots that are very impressive for a comedy film. And at times, the film feels "epic" as you see the family on the run from the INS, to moving to the suburbs to returning to their planet. There are great performances throughout the film and the many cameos are perfect. Look for funny scenes from Jan Hooks, Adam Sandler, Michael Richards, and Garrett Morris. Michelle Burke makes a nice debut as Connie Conehead and I expect to see more of her in the future. On the surface, this seems like a dumb movie and it has received many poor reviews. But if you sit back and let it take you on an adventure (and if you can keep up with the way the Coneheads use different words for common items) you will be pleasantly surprised."

"I suppose I will like any movie that Dan Aykroyd plays in, that's how good I think he is as an actor. Belder Conehead and his wife crash on planet earth while on a mission of conquest.
While waiting to be rescued they begin to adapt to our lifestyle and have a child. Unfortunately they are being chased by the government who knows something is not quite right with this family.
After they are rescued and taken back to their planet, Belder is told to come back and destroy planet earth. Now he has a choice and this is where the heart of the movie is. I think this movie was good. I didn't like the part where they mocked the Bible and really didn't think they had to put that in, but besides that it was entertaining and Dan Aykroyd stole the show as usual."
Rock on Coneheads!

"This movie was so great! I loved it so much! I love the acts on SNL that they do so I knew I had to rent the movie. I loved this movie so much that I think I'm going to have to buy it! The songs they used on the movie were very good. The Coneheads is a non stop laughing movie. It is great for all ages! I love it!"
