Amazon Women on the Moon Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The 1987 portmanteau comedy feature Amazon Women on the Moon lampoons several film genres in general and the 1954 sci-fi cheapie [[Feature~V8598~Cat Women of the Moon~catwomenofthemoon]] in particular. Other sketches in [[Feature~V20148~Amazon Women~goldoftheamazonwomen]] include an opening bit with [[Performer~P29728~Arsenio Hall~arseniohall]]; a vignette titled "Son of the Invisible Man" wherein a naked [[Performer~P5007~Ed Begley Jr.~edbegleyjr]] runs around in full view of the nonplussed supporting cast; the [[Feature~V25535~It's Alive~itsalive]] parody "Hospital", which offers the spectacle of [[Performer~P56469~Michelle Pfeiffer~michellepfeiffer]] giving birth to Mr. Potato Head; and a [[Performer~P188033~Siskel~genesiskel]] & [[Performer~P187959~Ebert~rogerebert]] takeoff, featuring [[Performer~P29583~Arche Hahn~archiehahniii]] as a TV viewer whose entire life is given a "thumbs down." Directed by several hands, including [[Performer~P16940~Joe Dante~joedante]], [[Performer~P92190~Carl Gottleib~carlgottlieb]], [[Performer~P94896~Peter Horton~peterhorton]], John Landis, and [[Performer~P116329~Robert K. Weiss~robertweiss]], Amazon Women on the Moon also features a satire of the [[Performer~P176767~Kroger G. Babb~krogerbabb]] school of "sex hygiene" exploitation cheapies, with syphilis victim [[Performer~P89886~Carrie Fisher~carriefisher]] being counseled by unctuous doctor [[Performer~P3926~Paul Bartel~paulbartel]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
