The Hollowheads, a slightly darker and more satirical 80s take on The Jetsons (1962), have their hands full when the head of the family's sleazy and abusive boss invites himself to their family dinner.
An alien is sent on a secret mission to Earth, where she appears as a gorgeous, attractive, and single lady. Her mission is to make contact with a rather nerdy young scientist, who's quite overwhelmed by her attentions, and isn't aware of the connection between her arrival and his work.Written by

Ok, I admit to a guilty pleasure at 1)enjoying and 2) recommending this movie.
The plot is weak, the situation implausible and the secondary characters are weak. So why do I give this movie a 7/10?
Dan Aykroyd and Kim Basinger, who have some of the funniest lines in any movie.
They are both excellent as 'fish out of water' he as a nerdy social misfit and she as the space travelling investigator who has to find out how Dan Aykroyd's character was able to contact her planet from a primitive Earth.
It is a movie that definitely grows on you with repeated viewings.
