Christmas on Mars
I saw this film in the theaters and they had the volume way too high. Still, fun movie.
There's a colony on Mars that looks a lot like an abandoned grain silo, and it's starting to break down. Everything is looking grim until the alien shows up (who keeps his spaceship in his mouth--I am NOT making this up) and lets everyone believe in miracles again.
The movie is campy and fun and has some wonderfully stiff performances by people who aren't actors and some scene-chewing by people who are. Adam Goldberg has a defiantly NSFW dream and Fred Armisen sings creepy songs.
It's a romp. Here's a song that kinda sums it all up.
