"The gags are flung at you like darts" (The Washington Post) in this "bracingly impolite, parodistic comedy" (L.A.

Playing to sold-out arenas of adoring fans, the IQ-challenged ETs try to make the party last all night long...or at least until their annoyed mother ship arrives to whisk them back into space for good!
