1987. John Landis. David Alan Grier. Steve Guttenberg. Arsenio Hall. Carrie Fisher. Michelle Pfeiffer. Phil Hartman. Rosanna Arquette. Never since this film and never again will you see so many names attached to a movie you never watched, and probably never heard of.
The best way to describe "Amazon Women on the Moon" is a skit comedy. Imagine "Saturday Night Live" made for the big screen but without limits. It opens with Arsenio Hall having the worst possible day ever in "Mondo Condo". Lots of other brands of humor are thrown around in this comedy that is reminiscent of someone flipping through channels after only a few minutes per program.
You even see a second or 2 of static between skits to signify the channel changing. Some of the most memorable skits here are the David Alan Grier led "Blacks Without Soul", (with an appearance by BB King), The cheesey 1950's B-movie parody "Amazon Women on the Moon" (which they opted to use as the title), along with the take off of "Ripley's Believe it or Not" titled "Bullshit or Not!"
So many memorable sketches in this movie, there is literally something for everyone. But be forewarned, its not tame and not actually everyone. Its Rated R for a very good reason.
