These dates are out of this world! 1980s SoCal gets spoofed in this aliens-meet-humans campy affair starring Jeff Goldblum. Bright and colorful, Earth Girls Are Easy plays on the shallowness of Los Angeles (I mean, like, the aliens land in the Valley of all places) as the three stranded furry extraterrestrials navigate this strange new land after landing in a backyard pool. Of course there’s also a love story that centers around Goldblum’s alien and engaged manicurist Valerie (played by Geena Davis) who, after shaving him discovers a real hunk. Duh.
Earth Girls Are Easy is a veritable “before they were stars” film: Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, Geena Davis, Julie Brown and, of course, Jeff Goldblum!
