About the Movie

The Coneheads were a sketch on the Saturday Night Live television show of the late '70s which were expanded to feature-length proportions with this film. The story concerns Beldar (Dan Aykroyd) and Prymaat (Jane Curtin), who leave the planet Remulak to prepare for an invasion of Planet Earth. But due to a malfunction, they find themselves plunged into the Hudson River and forced to take up residence in Paramus, New Jersey where Beldar gets work as an appliance salesman and makes a deal for a phony social security card. Before long, all thoughts of invading Earth are left behind as Beldar and Prymaat quickly adapt to suburban life — except for their coneheads and metallic-sounding voices, they become a typical middle-class suburban family. The Coneheads have a child, Connie (Michelle Burke) and Beldar becomes a New York cab driver and starts up his own driving school. Connie grows into a teenager and a neighborhood boy, Ronnie (Chris Farley), develops a crush on her because he likes to rub her conehead. But a nefarious INS agent, Gorman Seedling (Michael McKean), and his toady assistant, Turnbull (David Spade), are hot on The Coneheads' trail because of Beldar's false social security card. Not only that, but the Remulakian Highmaster (Dave Thomas) is beginning to wonder what ever happened to Beldar's invasion of the third rock from the sun.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Coneheads falls flat about as often as it turns funny, and displays more amiability than style. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Can you inflate a gimmick-driven comedy skit into a full-fledged feature film? Up to a point. – Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Curtin and Aykroyd rely on old standbys... When that doesn't work, which mostly it doesn't, they try grossing us out with a series of revolting Remulakian childbirth jokes. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, May 16, 2008

Rotten: This is a dismal, dreary and fairly desperate movie, in which the actors try very hard but are unable to overcome an uninspired screenplay. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

The cult laserdisc comes to iTunes!!!

Ok, the Coneheads are not so cult. But c'mon, if you thought the Coneheads skits on SNL were stupid, how bad could the film be? .....PRETTY BAD!! AND IT'S GREAT!! Considering the cast alone, this film is gold! Phil Hartman, David Spade, Chris Farley, Michael McKean, John Lovitz, and so many more. The special effects are hilarious. The story is ridiculous. The acting is cheesy! The lines from Dan Akroyd are hysterical! I was against this film the moment I saw the trailer, but once I saw it, it went in my collection of B-movie gems! Why don't they make this purhcasable? What a let-down! But rent it and you'll rather get it on DVD anyways. :)
