""Wham-Bam-Thank You, Spaceman" was a major disappointment in every respect, except that most of the women in it are really good looking. It must have come out near the end of the nudie-cutie movie craze, because the language and actions are much more graphic than earlier Harry Novak productions. Virtually every other word uttered by the aliens is an expletive. After a while the effect of that is neither funny or shocking but boring. The absolute low point of the movie comes when the aliens watch a woman being attacked. Their idea of helping her is waiting until AFTER she's raped, beaming her on board their spaceship and having sex with her. Then they return her to her attacker and she turns the tables on him by raping him. And this is supposed to be a comedy! In addition to the film, the DVD includes a couple of theatrical shorts. "The Peeper" is fairly tame, but "Daughters Of Darkness" involves a satanic cult of devil worshippers. Unbelievable!"
So-so film, GREAT DVD!

"I am not sure exactly what is expected from people that gave this film a poor review. It is 70's standard sexploitation schlock. No story, no acting, no dialogue. I would tend to think it rare to find ANY soft core 70's film to be much different. Still, the DVD is LOADED with great bonuses. If nothing else, consider it archival footage of the "late night after 11pm on a Friday night at Cinemax" film clip festival. There are some 6 trailers, all replete with nudity, as well as dozens of posters/ephemera of these and many other Harry Novak films that play on the screen while accompanied with audio tracks. The tracks are radio spots for these films, and I would dare anyone to find this stuff anywhere else. Best of all, there are two short films, one of which is VERY racy.The goofy film gets 3 stars of 5 for the type of film it is. Let's not confuse it with Casablanca or Star Wars or something it should not be stacked against. The DVD itself gets 5 stars+ out of 5. A wonderful surprise to see a DVD so loaded with great stuff since the title itself is so poor."
What a hoot!

"A cross between comedy and softcore porn it's a great movie just to watch and enjoy. Not much thinking went into production and it shows > lots of skin as the "aliens" have things backwards but this B movie has witty alien dialog and attractive women. If you want to turn off your mind and float downstream this is the movie for you!"
For Ed Wood Completists Only...

"Like many of the films from Something Weird Video, this one is a real train wreck. There's more than a little misogyny in the script, and the acting is nonexistent. The costumes and sets are deliberately cheesy, which will be a plus for fans of bad films.
The real draw, however, is the presence of Valda (Night of the Ghouls) Hansen, one of Ed Wood's hangers-on. The movie was also part of Something Weird's Sexy Space Box Set, which included Space Thing (Special Edition) and Doris Wishman's Nude on the Moon.
If you're into the Something Weird phenomenon, you might enjoy this film. And that's a big "if.""
