Trivia

In 2005, the movie was issued on DVD in the United Kingdom by Moonstone Pictures. Fans have complained about the quality of this release, which appears to be transferred from video. In 2009, the film was issued on DVD by Alive/CMV Laservision in Germany. Subtitled "Let's Dance Tonight", this version features a very clear full-screen print with German and English audio options, as well as the theatrical trailer and alternate opening/ending scenes. Although it's the same version as that released in the United States, the film runs a few minutes shorter as a result of PAL speedup. In addition to the single-disc German version, a 2-disc Special Edition was also issued.This version includes alternate German credits and UK ending, a photo gallery, trailer, and a vintage 45 minute Curb Records promotional reel of rare music videos of the soundtrack songs "When the Rain Begins to Fall" (as utilized in the film), "Justine" (shot on video to coincide with the earlier release of Jimmy and the Mustangs' self-titled album), "Openhearted", "She Doesn't Mean a Thing to Me", "Back on the Street", "Nature of the Beast", "21st Century", "New Orleans", "Combine Man" and edits of Pia Zadora's "Let's Dance Tonight"[26] and "Little Bit of Heaven," which deviate from the versions featured in the film.

Odd, very odd ... a classical B-Movie. But I like the song!
26 October 2001 | by siriusianerSee all my reviews

Voyage of the Rock Aliens is perhaps the goofiest of Pia's movie ventures. It features the arrival of some extraterrestrials who look an awful lot like a 1980's pop music group. Pia is the rockin' teenaged diva who becomes the center of conflict between the aliens and the town's local band of rock and roll rebels.

Tacked on to the beginning of the movie in a rather strange framing sequence is the video for the song "When the Rain Begins to Fall," a duet between Pia and Jermaine Jackson. Jackson doesn't appear in any of the rest of the movie.
