“Waste your brain; wax your board; pray for waves.” Woody said.
This 80’s comedy is an unknown gem to alot of people. It has went under the radar of many movie watchers. Comedy, science fiction, romance and a musical all rolled into one movie.
Here is the basic plot of the film…In this musical comedy, Valerie (Geena Davis) is dealing with her philandering fiancé, Ted (Charles Rocket), when she finds that a trio of aliens (Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans) have crashed their spaceship into her swimming pool. Once the furry beings are shaved at her girlfriend’s salon, the women discover three handsome men underneath. After absorbing the native culture via television, the spacemen are ready to hit the dating scene in 1980s Los Angeles.
The film was directed by Julien Temple and the soundtrack is composed by different artists of the 1980’s.
I really enjoy this film and I feel that everyone should watch it just to see a young Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, and Damon Wayans. Also Geena Davis is great in this film!
You can find the soundtrack on Amazon.
You can also find the soundtrack on ITunes.
