Consensus: Earth Girls Are Easy is messy, silly, and not particularly bright -- qualities it comes by honestly and deliberately.

Variety Staff

Intended by director Julian Temple and his screenwriters to affectionately skewer Tinseltown lifestyles.

Rolling Stone

An entertaining trifle.

Alonso Duralde
Linoleum Knife

As funny and silly as ever, it's even more interesting to watch as a period piece, exulting in the dream of the San Fernando Valley of the 1980s.

Alexander Wilson
Light humoured comedy but not a sci fi as such just for young boys really.
