This weeks movie magic was provided again by a Saturday Night Live spinoff called Coneheads, featuring Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin. They play a couple of aliens who crash near Manhattan and decide to settle down and live in America. Although they have large conically shaped heads and speak in a very eccentric way they are able to raise a child in the suburbs. It is a simple comedy and although quite childish it does have its charm. The acting is good in parts although the script can be a little silly at times. I think the actors did a reasonable job and although being described as “dismal, dreary and fairly desperate” I found it reasonably entertaining.
Not in the same league as Wayne`s World, but if you feel like a simple no-brainer comedy this could fit the bill.
Review score: 6/10
