While here, they dodge the INS, have a child and discover that life on Earth is quite good. But unfortunately they are being chased by the government who knows something is not quite right with the Conehead family. After they are rescued and taken back to their planet, Belder vows to return to earth and conquer it!
Plot: The Coneheads were a sketch on the Saturday Night Live television show of the late ’70s which were expanded to feature-length proportions with this film. The story concerns Beldar (Dan Aykroyd) and Prymaat (Jane Curtin), who leave the planet Remulak to prepare for an invasion of Planet Earth. But due to a malfunction, they find themselves plunged into the Hudson River and forced to take up residence in Paramus, New Jersey where Beldar gets work as an appliance salesman and makes a deal for a phony social security card. Before long, all thoughts of invading Earth are left behind as Beldar and Prymaat quickly adapt to suburban life — except for their coneheads and metallic-sounding voices, they become a typical middle-class suburban family. The Coneheads have a child, Connie (Michelle Burke) and Beldar becomes a New York cab driver and starts up his own driving school.

_**Fun shenanigans with the Coneheads on Earth and Remulak**_
RELEASED IN 1993 and directed by Steve Barron, “Coneheads” chronicles events when a couple from the planet Remulak, Beldar (Dan Aykroyd) and Prymatt (Jane Curtin), are mistakenly ditched on Earth, during a reconnaissance mission for planet takeover. Their misadventures include: Dodging the INS (Michael McKean & David Spade), moving to suburbia and having a kid (Michelle Burke) and meeting all kinds of colorful people (Sinbad, Jason Alexander, Chris Farley, etc.). In other words, there’s a constant string of guest stars that were popular at the time, mostly comedians.
I had my doubts about this movie because I didn’t think they could take an amusing 9-minute SNL skit and effectively make it into a film ten times longer. But the flick’s funny from the get-go and the writers wisely change settings & peripheral characters so regularly that the story never gets dull. The third act features a well-done sequence on the Conehead homeworld, Remulak.
On the female front there’s Lisa Jane Persky as a voluptuously winsome neighbor and the mind-blowing Michelle Burke as the Conehead daughter, Connie (a role that Laraine Newman fulfilled on TV, but she was considered too old for the role in the film at 40). The creators wisely showcase Burke’s beauty without resorting to tasteless sleaze.
Critics may have hated it, but “Coneheads” competently entertains and amuses on several levels.
THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour 28 minutes and was shot in New York City; Paramus, New Jersey; and Cerritos, California.
Though this isn’t the very best movie made from Saturday Night Live skits and characters (that would be a tossup between ‘The Blues Brothers’ and the two ‘Wayne’s World’ entries), this is definitely top-tier and in the best five ever made. Laraine Newman and Jane Curtin were very underrated as comediennes, and the unsung heroes that held the cast together during its excellent run of the early days.
What’s hardly ever talked about, when it comes to movies based on SNL skits, is how important the supporting players are. ‘Coneheads’ undoubtedly has the strongest supporting cast of any of them, and while director Barron has hardly become a household name in terms of movies (only this and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ really hit the radar), his prowess on some of the greatest music videos of all time (ie., Dire Straits’ ‘Money for Nothing’, Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ and A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’) was picture-perfect for the comedic set-pieces here. Definitely worth at least a watch, here in the 21st-century.
Humorous light comedy
I’ve never watched a microsecond of SNL so I watched this as just another film. It’s not Gone with the Wind, but it doesn’t pretend to be. It’s a small scale comedy. It isn’t 90 minutes of side splitting belly laughs, but it’s mildly amusing throughout and there are a number of pretty good jokes. Flicking through the twenty or so movies my cable channel is offering me this evening, I’d prefer Coneheads to any of them. That doesn’t make it a masterpiece, it just makes it a solid little comedy that will leave you more cheerful at the end than you were at the beginning. For those who like their comedy to be cutting edge with constant sarcastic political barbs, you should look elsewhere. (Is this why some reviewers don’t like it – maybe they were expecting political satire ?) This isn’t satire, it’s mild smiley humour a la Ghostbusters, and none the worse for that.
One Of The Better SNL Movies (maybe best?) Laraine Newman got screwed though.
Maybe because I grew up watching SNL live during its first 5 or so years but I really got a laugh out of the Coneheads when they would do that skit on SNL. I admit I have not seen the movie in a while but I was just thinking about Laraine Newman from doing some reading about the group Devo (its a long story) and I just realized that she really got screwed not getting the role that she played on the TV show. I see pics of her on IMDb and she looks OK now, back in 93 she probably still looked cool, I mean why not use her as the kid? I mean there freakin aliens anyway so so what if a 35 year old plays a teenager. The teen in the movie Coneheads plays like the Marylin Munster type as the only semi normal one and her role is kinda lame except when she scarfs down the sub, that was funny, and Farleys reaction was about the best part of the movie. Well, I liked Coneheads but then again I liked Dragnet so I’m probably an Akyroid lover at heart that would watch anything he’s in an enjoy it.
