Earth Girls Are Easy ★★½ 1989 (PG)

Valley girl Valerie is having a bad week: first she catches her fiancee with another woman, then she breaks a nail, then furry aliens land in her swimming pool. What more could go wrong? When the aliens are temporarily stranded, she decides to make amends by giving them a head-to-toe makeover. Devoid of their excessive hairiness, the handsome trio of fun-loving extraterrestrials set out to experience the Southern California lifestyle. Sometimes hilarious scifi/musical, featuring bouncy shtick and a gleeful dismantling of modern culture. 100m/C VHS, DVD .
