Movie Reviews

An Entertaining Musical Sci-fi Comedy!
M. Hart | USA | 08/12/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Earth Girls Are Easy" is a musical sci-fi comedy about valley-girl Valerie (played by Geena Davis) living in 1980's Los Angeles, and who is engaged to a cheating, boyfriend doctor named Ted (played by Charles Rocket). Catching her boyfriend at home playing with a nurse, the disgruntled Valerie gets the surprise of her life when a spaceship crash lands in her swimming pool. The spaceship's crew (played by Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans), haven't had any "shore leave" in a long time. Not wanting to cause too much of a stir, Valerie takes the alien trio to her best friend Candy (played by Julie Brown) who owns a beauty salon. After Candy transforms the furry trio into believable human males, Valerie finds their captain, Mac (Jeff Goldblum), very attractive. Wild things happen when the alien trio are taken to a dance club and letting them drive in California traffic!The fact that this film is also a musical only adds to the humor as there are several original songs by Julie Brown!If you enjoy remembering the excesses of the 1980's and New Wave music, you will probably enjoy this film!"
"I like 'em big...and stupid!"
Sean E. Mcgrath | Austin, TX USA | 09/23/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you like 'em that way too, then this is the movie for you!Four very strong leads - Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum and then unknown Jim Carrey and Damon Williams - backed up by Julie Brown deliver a paper-thin story with humor, bright colors and an ineffable sexiness. I think this was an attempt to revive musical-comedy cinema in the late '80s; the previous shining example being "Xanadu". The songs are original, funny and have enjoyed cult status ever since.This is one of the first movies to show that inter-planetary romances don't have to end with an ova-depositor rammed down your throat.I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys turing their minds off for an hour and a half of fun."
California Crayola

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is crayon colorful in its outlook and its sophistication. Stars Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum are joined by relative unknowns Jim Carrey and Daymon Wayans in a romp through Southern California. Puns, silliness, sex jokes (it's PG so they're not lewd), satire, and some of Julie Brown's funniest songs are highlights.

Mac (Goldblum) is captain of an alien space ship that crash lands in Valerie's (Davis) pool because of the antics of his sexually deprived side kicks Wiploc (Carrey) and Zeebo (Wayans). The three hairy spacemen cheerfully turn Valerie's life from a disaster to. . . absolute chaos.

Julie Brown (Candy) and Michael McKean (Woody) steal the show with wonderful bits. When Candy wins "this month's Miss August" and sings "I'm a Blonde" listen and rewind to hear it again. It's a hoot! You won't recognize McKeen, from "Laverne and Shirley", "This is Spinal Tap" or, more recently, "A Mighty Wind." He makes a delightful Woody: the pool man with a surfing obsession and the IQ of a carrot. This DVD would be a good first step toward your own Michael McKean movie collection.

I originally saw this movie in 1989 as part of a Women's Movie Festival, Brown shares author credits. "Earth Girls are Easy" is based on her song of the same name. This is the movie I watch when I want a cheer-me-up."
Have some 80's nostalgia
Elizabeth Darcy | Murray, UT USA | 04/08/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"In spite of this film being slightly annoying (partly for Geena Davis's character, partly for the tacked-on music), it has redeeming values that make it worth at least a watch, and a trip back into 80's Space. The best parts are the hilarious Julie Brown songs, 'I Like 'Em Big and Stupid', and 'Cuz I'm a Blonde'. If the rest of the movie gets on your last nerve, just skip to the Julie Brown songs, and it will be worth the price you paid! It's too bad much of the editing that took place for the movie took out Julie stuff, which is why you should get the DVD, to have access to the deleted scenes.Other highlights are a delicious and silent Jeff Goldblum, and Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans, when you knew them when. Also check out the always-appealing Michael McKean as a pool-cleaning Surf Bum. Combine all that with lots of 80's color and glam, and you've got a fun little trip on their alien ship."
