YMMV / Coneheads

  • Awesome Music: Morten Harket's cover of "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," heard in the final scene and closing credits.
  • Cult Classic: While it doesn't have the same reputation as The Blues Brothers or Wayne's World, Coneheads has a very dedicated fanbase who enjoy its quirky humor, onslaught of cameos and '90s nostalgia.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Not So Crazy Anymore: Seedling's suggestion to build an electrical fence along the Mexican border to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country was utterly ludicrous at the time the movie was made (as shown by his superiors' reactions). Enter the '00s, when that exact same plan (minus the explodey collars) was seriously proposed several times.note 
  • Vindicated by Cable/So Okay, It's Average: Didn't do much in theaters, but became a pleasant little gem among channel surfers in the coming decades and is now considered one of the "better" SNL-based movies.
