Mutant Aliens

Mutant Aliens ★★★

There are definitely some scenes in here that'd raise a few eyebrows (particularly Earl's adventures in space) but when it works, such as the patriotic 'goodbye' speech at the beginning, it's genuinely hilarious, and it has the real feel of a film made to be seen on cable TV at 1:00 AM on a Saturday morning when you're bored and teenaged and flipping the channels, only to be traumatized and spend years trying to describe what you saw to your friends and distant relatives, who will assure you that you must have been imagining things, and were too gorged on bad pizza and cheap wine.
