Movie Reviews

Hilarious
12/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this film.
I actually saw it by accident because the video carried on recording all night after I recorded something else and I thought I might as well watch it, after all, the title was pretty amusing. It turns out that so is the rest of the film.
I can't remember a single minute where I was bored, it had me laughing all the way through, especially the moron's reactions when the door falls off their spaceship. Desmond's line then had me giggling all night. It's hilarious when they 'play' chess too.
It's probably not the sort of thing that appeals to everyone, but if you like crazy comedies about beer guzzling morons from another planet then this is the film for you. It's definitely British comedy though, which is different to American comedy and I think funnier, but in a different way.
I'd recommend this to anyone who's looking for a good night in with a few mates and a lot of laughs, but it you're after something in any way serious and thought provoking, look somewhere else. On course if that's what your looking for you wouldn't even be reading up op a film with that title, I hope."
One of the funniest movies- ever!

"Bizarre, highly entertaining, always hilarious humor in this British comedy, very much a cross between Airplane and Monty Python type humor. Funny all the way to the end!"
Not for everyone

"If you liked 'transylvania 6-5000', and enjoy british comedy, i.e. bean, monty python, black adder, then this might be for you. I laughed throughout the movie, rent it and see what you think! i hope you enjoy it. lars"
Was that Morons or Macaroons?
Heather L. Parisi | St. Augustine, FL USA | 05/28/2001

"Very original and a "reel" pleasant surprise. Most movies of this type are awful in poor taste and boring but this one rates right up there with the "Green Slime" and "The Monster that Challenged the World," as camp "B" movie hits go. Imagine what they might do in a sequel---perhaps "Macaroons From Outer Space"?

HOW DOES THIS FILM TURN OUT TO BE SOMEWHAT WORTHWHILE?

Basically, it's Mike Hodges, Director, who also brought "Flash Gordon" and "The Terminal Man" to the big screen. Hodges' style permeates this entire film, and makes it into a sort of epic comic book fantasy, harmless-nightmare, sort of surreal something. Basically a grand much-ado-about-nothing.
