Product Description

Amazon.ca

Contrary to popular rumor, this 1987 collection of comedy skits is not about a group of female employees from Amazon.com on a mission to the lunar surface. It's a series of unrelated spoofs and sketches designed to resemble an aimless night of TV channel-surfing, and the satirical targets include grade-Z science fiction films of the 1950s, sex films of the 1930s, hospital soap operas, and Playboy video centerfolds. There's a charity drive in which legendary bluesman B.B. King pleas for donations to help "Blacks Without Soul," and Ed Begley Jr. thinks he's the son of the Invisible Man, which would be fine if he weren't as visible as everyone else. The various sketches feature an all-star cast including Rosanna Arquette, Griffin Dunne, Carrie Fisher, Michelle Pfeiffer, the late Phil Hartman in an early role, and many others. It's strictly hit-or-miss, and many of the sketches fall flat, especially since the subjects being spoofed (the title sketch is a send-up of the actual 1954 movie Cat Women on the Moon) are funny enough without being satirized. Even though Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide describes most of the sketches as "astonishingly unfunny," this can be a very amusing movie if you're in the mood for a no-brainer with a lot of familiar Hollywood faces. Now a modest little cult film, it's the kind of disposable entertainment that maintains its appeal almost in spite of itself. --Jeff Shannon

Format: DVD
In 1987, a group of five directors (Joe Dante, Carl Gottlieb, Peter Horton, John Landis and Robert Weiss) worked together to create a silly spoof of 1950's sci-fi films called "Amazon Women on the Moon". Each director focused on specific segments of the film to create the illusion that the audience is watching the fictitious film "Amazon Women on the Moon" from the 1950's interspersed with television commercials and other segments. Some of the main segments in the film include the following:
1. "Amazon Women on the Moon" with Capt. Nelson (Steve Forrest), Blackie (Robert Colbert), Butch (Joey Travolta), Queen Lara (Sybil Danning) and Alpha Beta (Lana Clarkson). This segment follows the astronauts traveling to the moon and finding a group of beautiful women living there.
2. "Murray in Videoland" with Murray (Lou Jacobi) and Selma (Erica Yohn). Murray gets more than he expected after purchasing a new TV.
3. "Mondo Condo" with an apartment victim played by Arsenio Hall. Arsenio gets a few surprises in his apartment.
4. "Hospital" with Brenda (Michelle Pfeiffer), Harry (Peter Horton), Doctor (Griffin Dunne) and the nurse (Brian Ann Zoccola). Not a hospital you would want to be in.
5. "Blacks Without Soul" with Don 'No Soul' Simmons (David Alan Grier) and B.B. King as himself. Funny spoofs of songs.
6. "Roast Your Loved One" with Harvey Pitnik (Archie Hahn), Bernice Pitnik (Belinda Balaski), Rick Raddnitz (Robert Picardo), Rip Taylor as himself, Slappy White as himself, Jackie Vernon as himself, Henny Youngman as himself, Charlie Callas as himself and Steve Allan as himself. Some silly jokes, but no great acting.
With such a huge cast, it's no wonder that the beginning credits only say "A lot of actors" instead of listing each one by name.

What words can describe greatness such as this? Genious. Ageless. Priceless. This movie has everything and anything you could possibly imagine, from Andrew Dice Clay in a video nightmare rental or Arsenio Hall being killed by a VCR. This is not viewing for the average individual. No no. This film is made for the extraoridinary people of the world who would watch anything at 4:35 AM. If only channel surfing really was this fun.

This film is generally described as John Landis' attempt to recreate the experience of watching TV late at night while flipping channels. That's certainly the intent of at least part of the movie, but the pacing and structure is so uneven it's hard to tell exactly what Landis was trying to do. Compared even to crude films like "Kentucky Fried Movie" and "Tunnelvision", "Amazon WOmen..." misses the mark.
What we get is bits of an imaginary 1950s sci-fi movie (done exceptionally well, I have to say) interspersed with a series of comedy skits of varying quality. It doesn't like an evening of flipping channels so much as a crabbed together film made to salvage a number of half baked projects.
Some of the skits are pretty funny, though none are really side splittingly so. David Allen Grier's spoof featuring "Don 'No Soul' Simmons'" is pretty funny- the first time, at least. Most of the skits are pretty sophmoric and none is terribly witty.
Save your money and rent it.

Okay, first time reviewer here, but I had to share this bit. First, I give the movie itself 5 stars - it is one of my favorites. About this DVD, however... Just bought it and briefly went through a couple of skits (I have them all memorized already) and I noticed a glarring error on the 'Hair Looming' skit - it has been edited/shortened!!! They totally cut out the part where they demonstrate how the hair stays on after the guy jumps of the cliffs of Acculpoco and the police drag his body to the shore and smile because the hair stayed on. (sp?). Why??? That was one of the funniest parts! I think there are a couple of other small omisions in there too - need to go all through it again, but the point is while a fantastic movie, they cut stuff out! I don't get it. If this is the only way to see the movie however (as my VHS copy broke recently), I guess it will have to do.

A very clever collection of shorts put together in a way that they seem to flow together, even though most have nothing in common, Amazon Women on the Moon is a very fun movie to watch. It has a long list of talent in its cast including Arsenio Hall, Michelle Pfeifer, Joe Pantoliano, Steve Guttenberg, Roseanna Arquette, Carrie Fisher, and Andrew Dice Clay.
The scene "Blind Date" which stars Steve Guttenberg and Roseanna Arquette is worth the price of the DVD itself. It is absolutely hilarious. I would consider it my worst nightmare (at least in dating terms).
Parts of the movie are ridiculous, but for the most part it is very enjoyable. The best way to watch this is to go into it with an open mind and don't expect it to be realistic.

From a nude playmate attending church with mom and dad, to Don "No Soul" Simmons crooning "Tie a yellow ribbon 'round the old oak tree" this movie has something to tickle the funny bone of anyone who's ever questioned where American culture's headed (or where it's been, for that matter). The disparate snippets of stories are loosely tied together by a late- late-night movie (called -surprise! - 'Amazon Women on the Moon') and by a hapless wanderer who remotes himself into all the action (the weakest element of the movie). Best viewed late at night with good buddies who share your slightly off-center sense of humor; wear a seat belt or you might hurt yourself when you fall out of your chair laughing.
