Valerie (Davis) is a nail technician whose relationshp with her boyfriend Doctor Ted (Charles Rocket) is going through a rough patch. Valerie's friend at the Salon (Julie Brown) suggests "vixenizing" to get his attention. The rough patch is made rougher when Valerie discovers Ted is a cheat, and a spaceship containing three furry aliens (Goldblum, Wayans and Carrey) lands in Ted's swimming pool. Valerie, being a sweet sort, wants to help the aliens out so takes them to her friend's salon so they can pass for human until the pool is drained, the ship is dried out and capable of taking off. Ted discovers the boys aren't what they seem, but one philandering doctor is no match for a genius alien in love.

* InformedAttractiveness / HilariousInHindsight: The aliens are talked about as being really hot - who are comprised of Damon Wayans, Jim Carrey and, [[SarcasmMode the hottest of them all]], Jeff Goldblum. Even in 1989 that wasn't true, though Carrey really is cute in the film, in his off-beat way.
