Come to the Valley in the late 1980s for a trippy campy sci-fi musical that gives us the one of the funniest and kookiest looks at So-Cal culture back in the day. Pastels, big hair, surfer dudes, and pink cars are the norm in this wild and crazy…. chick flick? Even the opening credits are filled with graphics of spaceships and aliens from the 1930s-50s. Valerie (Geena Davis) is a nail technician engaged to a doctor, Ted, (Clearles Rocket) whom happens to be looking for his last fling before their wedding. After not giving into Valerie’s desires for two weeks, Valerie is troubled, and tells her best friend and co-worker, Candy (Julie Brown) about it, and the whole of the beauty shoppe, Curl Up & Dye, give her a blonde makeover to help her get a new perspective and to get Ted interest in her back. The plan backfires when Ted brings home a nurse from work, and the two women find out what he’s up to. Valerie kicks Ted out of the house, but on this same night, Earth is being watched by two furry, horny aliens Zeebo (Damon Wayans) and Wiploc (Jim Carrey) who are in the need of some female release. They pickup a signal from a TV station broadcasting an advertisment for an aerobics class in Hollywood, and find the hairless females of earth to be very exotic and pleasing. They lose the signal, and come closer to Hollywood. The next morning they are hovering over Valerie’s backyard watching her as she’s tanning. They fight over the scope, and cause their little spaceship to crash in the pool, which wakes up the ship’s captain, Mac (Jeff Goldblum). Valerie thinks she’s hallucinating, and tries to swim through the spaceship, and there begins the real story when Mac rescues her after hitting her head on the spaceship.
