|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Unexpectedly benign (and good-natured) comedy based on the 1970s Saturday Night Live skits. The Coneheads (from the planet Remulak) land on earth in a botched mission and, to their own surprise, adapt to middle-class suburban life. A most enjoyable family film that combines silliness with some sly and unexpected gags. Amusing cameos by a gaggle of past and present SNL cast members. Aykroyd also cowrote the film.
