After she’s betrayed by her fiancée, three very hairy aliens crash-land in the pool of cosmetologist and valley girl Valerie Gail (Geena Davis). With the help of Valerie’s friend Candy Pink (co-writer Julie Brown), the aliens receive a more-human makeover and a shave. Romance and hijinks ensue, in this musical-number-filled escapade.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
