One-line Reviews (25)

This film as a whole is boring and immediately forgettable.

The overall mess of confusion of this movie is what makes it interesting- it's a big jumble of glitter, fur, and music.

Now I think Ted was a jerk and a tad annoying, but other then that I think EARTH GIRLS make a fun movie worth watching over and over again.

This movie's goofy, but often hilarious and always fun & entertaining.

Julien Temple's second film isn't as good as his first ("Absolute Beginners"), but it's enjoyable.

An Entertaining Musical Sci-fi Comedy.

Campy, brainless comedy with music about a beautician--on the mend after kicking out her cheating fiancé--who gets an unexpected visit from three furry aliens and their spaceship, which lands in her swimming pool.

But a significant proportion of these same moviegoers would rate it as an enjoyable film that they would be prepared to watch again.

As was noted in another comment, this is one of those movies where you just sit back for a somewhat enjoyable ride.

The movie is a screamingly funny trip (and one of the most beautifully color-styled films of the increasingly drab, post-studio era).

Their adventures into the world of Southern California provide for a couple of uncertain and unconvincing laughs, yet mostly serve to bore and annoy.

This is very much a film of its time but it is still enjoyable and still makes me laugh more than I expected it to.

But i wouldnt waste my time, unless you are just really into the Davis-Goldblum thing, which i never quite understood.

There's nothing particularly great here, but many scenes are fun, there are some good musical numbers, and there are enough likable characters to make you still "care" when the predictable ending takes place.

The film is slow and stiff with long embarrassing moments of nothing.

Okay, dude, it starts off as literally one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Most Boring Film Ever.

Some of the jokes are groaners, there's a total lack of story and an overabundance of visual eye candy and weird characters do wear you down after a while.

The film is very boring and the songs are just plain silly (not in a good way)I advise you to watch this film only if you are very stupid.

A Musy see if your into an "a" fun film disguised as a "B" film, I always find new stuff every time I watch it, during the make-over for instance, when Julie is reciting the top brand such as Loreal, Revlon, and she says Rubber Made and there is a lady in a red rubber suit, just those little touches keeps it entertaining and interesting a doable watch over and over again film!

I've viewed this film over 50 times and it just keeps getting more enjoyable.

Yes the film is basic in plot and absolutely could've used more material and feels thin at about the 2/3 of it, but the ending is genuinely cute however predictable and the gags really are very, very funny at times.

Anyways, while it gets a few laughs and you have some fun with it, it just gets a little stupid and cliché.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
