A 1990 comedy film in which the idiotic crew of a small Martian spaceship overhear a Halloween re-broadcast of OrsonWelles' seminal ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' radio-play, leading them to "invade" the small Midwestern town of Big Bean. All [[HamAndCheese very cheesy]].

* HeyItsThatGuy: Old Man Wrenchmuller is played by veteran character actor Royal Dano, perhaps most famous for playing Elijah the Prophet in the 1950s adaptation of ''Film/MobyDick'', and Grandpa Jesse in ''Film/HouseIITheSecondStory''.

* CoolShades: Blaznee rocks them 95% of the time. Dr. Ziplock is just [[MakingASpectacleOfYourself making a spectacle of himself]].

* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyselfFantasticFruitsAndVegetables: Wrenchmuller's farm is full of giant crops after the EmergencyCargoDump ExcrementStatement.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The opening credits theme is a (pretty subpar) riff on ''[[Music/GustavHolst Mars: The Bringer of War]]''. Which is strange, as ''The Planets'' are public domain.
