Following a similar plot to the skit, Coneheads is the story about the Beldar Conehead family who crash on earth during a scouting mission for planet conquest. While here, they dodge the INS, have a child and discover that life on Earth is quite good.
This is where the movie shows its heart. It could have been a movie of comedy bits but by the end, it is about happiness in a stable family, which is quite refreshing in these days of depressing movies about divorces and unmarried couples. It is nice to see Beldar be a father figure to his daughter rather than the "Let Your Kids Be Who They Are" mentality of these days. The direction of the film in excellent, setting up many nice visual gags and shots that are very impressive for a comedy film. And at times, the film feels "epic" as you see the family on the run from the INS, to moving to the suburbs to returning to their planet.
There are great performances throughout the film and the many cameos are perfect. Look for funny scenes from Jan Hooks, Adam Sandler, Michael Richards, and Garrett Morris. Michelle Burke makes a nice debut as Connie Conehead and I expect to see more of her in the future.
On the surface, this seems like a dumb movie and it has received many poor reviews. But if you sit back and let it take you on an adventure (and if you can keep up with the way the Coneheads use different words for common items) you will be pleasantly surprised.
Directed by Steve Barron (The Adventures of Pinocchio, Electric Dreams, Merlin) is a entertaining, delightful funny fantasy for all ages. Aykroyd & Curtin are fun as the Alien Parents. Michelle Burke (Dazed and Confused) plays thier Daughter. This film was Critically Lambasted back then and also an Box Office disappointment. Many of Ex-Saturday Night Lives comedians like:Laraine Newman, Chris Farley, Jan Hooks, Phil Hartman, Adam Sandler & Many More appears in Small Roles. Watch for:Parker Posey, Micheal Richards, Drew Carey, Eddie Griffin and Ellen DeGeneres appears in Cameos. Written by Aykoryd, Tom Davis, Bonnie Turner & Terry Turner. Based on a Popular-SNL sketch show. Watch also for Jon Lovitz & Tom Arnold in Unbilled Cameos. Grade:A-.
Ayckroyd and screen daughter Michelle Burke are fine in their roles, and quite endearing to watch. You might think differently, but for me, Jane Curtin doesn't quite have their charm, although it's interesting to see her develop some of the mannerisms she would later use in Third Rock From The Sun. 23 year old Michelle Burke and 29 year old Chris Farley play the two teenage lovers and Spinal Tap's Michael McKean plays the villain. Surprisingly this casting works. The youngsters appear younger than they are and McKean shows his range.
There is some clever defamiliarisation satire on the American way of life, the English Language, and on immigration policies. This cleverness works in tandem with the silliness of the piece to give an enjoyable, if flawed movie.
