|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Morons from Outer Space|
|MORONS FROM OUTER SPACE is a movie directed by Mike Hodges in 1985.
Four aliens, looking exactly like humans, accidentally land on earth. Three of them in England, the last one in Arizona. While a journalist is taking care of the first ones by turning them into rock stars, Bernard, the last one, must cross the U.S.A. in order to rejoin his partners. Certain parts of the movie are really hilarious and one can find in it good parodies of sci-fi pictures of the time and an alien/satyrical point of view of numerous failings of our modern societies.
