Coneheads (1993)

movie poster Based on a series of popular skits on Saturday Night Live, Dan Aykroyd of Dragnet and Jane Curtain (with foot-tall, cone-shaped skulls) play aliens “from France” trying to blend in on Earth, with their teenaged daughter (Loraine Newman), while home-planet Remulak expects them to destroy the planet (which they can’t do because someone blew the hatch too soon and their spaceship sank to the bottom of a lake). Co-written by Aykroyd, directed by Steve Barron. Michael McKean is a suspicious government man (he later played a similar character in the X Files TV-series). Cast includes Jason Alexander, Michelle Burke, David Spade, Phil Hartman, Dave Thomas, many cameos.
