    This was quite the crazy, goofy film that was just good enough to make it worth the watch. There are so many bonkers things going on that you never know which one will catch your attention.

    Zany performaces by Lithgow, Lloyd, Goldblum along with others that are too numerous to mention.

    I also got to see a completely different Ellen Barkin.

    I could see giving this one another go in a few years to see if I see different things.

    One of the most 80s things ever and an entertaining specimen of the "sci-fi/action movies that make no sense at all" genre. It's right up there with Big Trouble in Little China in that regard. Deadpan humor and non sequitur moments fly freely in nearly every scene of this film that stars Peter Weller as a famous particle physicist who also happens to be a brain surgeon and a rock star AND who figures out how to build a machine…

    The music for this movie is an eighties shit. Even the great melody at the end, is shat on with synth ass. It should've been done with a pipe and a drum, and an electric guitar. Look at me, mr movie soundtrack guy. But the aliens look great and it has the line "Why is there a watermelon there?"...................... "I'll tell you later." But then again, why does Penny act so fuckin weird? She sucks, she does everything so theatrically. Fuckin' act like a human, woman.

    Every bit as insane, terrible and great as the title suggests.

    Funny, stupid, cool, little weird, Sci-Fi comedy/parody with silly special effects and great actors - Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Jeff Goldblum...
    I gotta say I expected more, but it's ok.

    The cast is as unbelievable as the script! I don't know if I have stumbled upon a film remotely similar to this one, so unique in its weirdness and so naive in its pretension.

    Takes itself seriously enough to not be too over the top.

    Boasting a title so long you’re apt to doze off simply reading it, “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension” is a hodgepodge homage whose chances of hooking the hoi polloi were somehow less than hopeless.

    “Buckaroo” purported to zip along on the zappy, manic energy “Ghostbusters” showed earlier in the summer of 1984. (“Buckaroo” bailed on an original release of June 8 — a date on which, astoundingly, both “Ghostbusters” and “Gremlins” opened in a rare same-week…

    I can see why this is a cult film but to me it has the feeling of a kid telling you a story and making it up as they go along. "So there is this guy, and his name is Buckaroo Banzai and he is a surgeon and he drives a rocket car that goes through a mountain and oh AND he is in the best rock group ever where a guy plays two saxophones annnnnd... his friend is Jeff Goldblum..."
