Episode 582: Morons from Outer Space (1985)

Episode 581: Morons from Outer Space (1985) Special Guest: Griff Rhys Jones
Guest Co-Hosts: Jon Spira, Cecil Trachenburg

We conclude Sci-Fi July with a look at Mike Hodges’s Morons from Outer Space (1985). Written by and Mel Smith, the film tells the tale of a quartet of less-than-bright intergalactic travelers who crash land on Earth. The film lampoons the idea that we of Earth may be visited by beings from outer space only to find that they’re not as enlightened as we’d fancy them to be.

Cecil Trachenburg and Jon Spira join Mike to laud the film while Griff Rhys Jones discusses how disappointing he found the experience.
