Film: Earth Girls Are Easy

A 1988 science fiction musical romantic comedy based on a novelty song by Julie Brown and starring Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum, as well as Damon Wayans and Jim Carrey before they were famous. Set in an improbably colorful version of the San Fernando Valley wherein bright orange-and-red spacecraft crash-landing in backyard pools and spontaneous musical numbers aren't much cause for comment.

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.
