Earth Girls Are Easy is a dizzy, glitzy fish-out-of-water farce about three horny aliens on the make in LA.

Julie (Geena Davis), a gorgeous Valley Girl, works as a manicurist in high-tech beauty salon operated by Candy (Julie Brown) a Val-Queen supreme who likes good times and good sex.

Meanwhile in outer space, three aliens who look like tie-dyed werewolves are wandering around our solar system going bonkers with randiness. In keeping with the film’s hot-pastel, contempo-trash design motif, their spacecraft looks like the inside of a pinball machine. When it lands in Julie’s swimming pool, the broken-hearted girl who’s just broken off with her nogoodnik lover takes it for an oversized hair dryer.

Julie brings this gruesome threesome to Candy’s beauty parlor for a complete ‘makeover.’ They emerge as three hairless hunky dudes: the captain, Jeff Goldblum and two flaked-out crewmen, Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans. The two val-gals and their alien ‘dates’ take off for a weekend of LA nightlife, where the visitors’ smooth adaptation to Coast culture is intended by director Julian Temple and his screenwriters to affectionately skewer Tinseltown lifestyles.
