Movie Review by Mitch
February 1st, 2007

In this irreverent spoof of late-night television, humorous sketches mock varying forms of the media and other 1980s phenomena. Excruciatingly funny sketches include B.B. King making a public plea for "Blacks Without Soul," featuring the insipid talents of Don "No Soul" Simmons (David Alan Grier), as well as wacky spoofs of 1950s black-and-white films, including "Son of the Invisible Man," starring Ed Begley Jr. as the batty son who firmly believes he is as invisible as his father--except that everyone can see him--and "2 I.D.s," starring Rosanna Arquette and Steve Guttenberg as yuppies on a disastrous blind date. Everything from tabloid vignettes, 1950s sci-fi films, late-night porn, and infomercials are spoofed in this star-studded collection of skits. -Yahoo! Movies

Amazon Women on the Moon is an obscure comedy that is meant to be taken lightly, very lightly. So lightly you may want to indulge in an intoxicant or two before viewing. Along the vein of such classics as Airplane, The Naked Gun, Hotdog and Hamburger, AWOTM is one of the funniest spoof flicks ever. And clocking in at only 1 hour 25 minutes, it's not long enough to become tedious. I can't say too many good things about this film, yes some of the comedy is slightly dated, but not so much that it ceases to be funny. Arsenio Hall's segment has to to be one of the funniest things that I have ever seen. There really isn't much to the plot except that we are supposed to be watching a 1950's sci-fi movie with commercial breaks for hilarious products and there are even technical difficulties! Trust me, this is one funny movie if you like absurd humor. And with some of the idiotic comedies that are out there these days, this one fits right in.

With a ton of famous actors, actresses and comedians from the time, Amazon Women on the Moon is a movie that should be in any comedy fan's library. I have fond memories of seeing this on HBO as a kid and it will always have a place in my DVD collection.

Until Don finds his "soul",

Best Lines:

Apartment Victim: [Arsenio Hall has been on the receiving end of a wrong number for the same person three times in a row, and is getting frustrated] There ain't no f**kin' Thelma here! The b*tch don't LIVE here!
[pause]
Apartment Victim: F**k you, too, man!

B.B. King: Did you know that every 7 minutes, a black person is born in this country with no soul?

Pirate Captain: [looking at the FBI Warning on the video] Ohhh, I'm so scared.

I still wish I could do the background check on potential mates. If it's got Guttenberg, it's a classic in my opinion. But I'm weird like that.
