Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
A cinematic trifle of science fiction and romantic comedy, Earth Girls Are Easy is a harmless delight with bold production design and a likeable star. British director Julien Temple, who helmed the Sex Pistols documentaries The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle and The Filth and the Fury, is at his best when directing the musical numbers. Featuring bright colors and exuberant set decor, these music video-style segments are good trashy fun, co-written by and starring the self-parodying Julie Brown. The narrative is a lightheartedly satiric view of the disposable life in the valley, made endurable with the good-natured and quirky main character, Valerie (Geena Davis), who carries the movie through some rough spots with her naïve charm. Having the captain of the alien ship played by Davis' real-life husband at the time, Jeff Goldblum, brings some genuine warmth to what is otherwise just a silly love story. As the other two aliens, Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans (stars of the early-'90s Fox TV series In Living Color) get some predictable laughs in their misappropriations of pop culture, warping of TV commercials, and alien-ized valley slang. Their behavior doesn't matter, however, in the madcap throwaway logic of this movie, as long as they look hot and datable. Featuring a late-'80s pop soundtrack including Brown's hit "'Cause I'm a Blonde," Earth Girls Are Easy is enjoyably entertaining fluff.

I really enjoyed this movie! I could not quit laughing at Julie Brown, especially when she sings '''Cause I'm A Blonde'' in the middle of the movie. I wish that life was as simple as things were at the time that this movie came out, because this movie reminds me of a time when people weren't so hung up on special effects and just did some fun effects.

This movie was really good for something out of the 80s haha. The overall plot is a bunch of aliens land in this woman's pool and she helps them, they are transformed into total hotties, go out partying, and they fix their spaceship while they are staying with her but she slowly falls in love with Mac. Mac makes for one of the sexiest aliens because he's the leader of the 3, he's Jeff Goldblum enuf said, and aliens learn rather quickly and he uses that talent to woo the beautiful earth woman talking sweetly, playing the piano, etc. But she doesn't want him to get the wrong idea that earth girls are easy. Thus the title! yay! it was a really good laugh, Jim Carrey is the comedy in the movie.
