Analog Jones hops in their spaceship and blasts off to Southern California to party with Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and Julie Brown in Earth Girls Are Easy.
Ever wonder what it's like to be tall, beautiful, and surrounded by furry aliens? Matt tricks Stephen into watching a musical directed by Julien Temple and written by Julie Brown, yes, the MTV VJ. Brown can sing, dance, act, and write scripts. Which one of Julie Brown's songs are your favorite, Cause I'm A Blond or Earth Girls Are Easy?
Geena Davis starred in The Accidental Tourist (1988), the same year Earth Girls Are Easy came out and then in 1989 won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for The Accidental Tourist. Damn, that is quite a leap!
Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans would work with each other two years after this movie on In Living Color for the Fox Broadcasting Company that ran from 1990 to 1994. You may remember Jim Carrey as Fire Marshal Bill and Damon Wayans as Homey D. Clown.
Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis are no strangers to each other. They have starred side by side in three movies; Transylvania 6-5000 (1985), The Fly (1986) and Earth Girls are Easy (1988).
Come back next week when we wrap up Theme song September with The Goonies.
