Invasion of the Star Creatures
Beautiful alien Amazonian women plan to conquer the world using an army of vegetable monsters. Dim-witted privates Philbrick and Penn bumble into a cave in search of atomic activity but collide instead with fierce carrot-topped tree mutants and their leaders, the 7-foot space sirens Prof. Tanga and Dr. Puna. This lavishly low-budget sci-fi romp has the bodacious aliens planning to overrun Earth with their vege-men army, but first they want the G.I.s to explain the meaning of love.

(es) wrote: Lone Star Lite.Sayles has something to say about politics, corruption, bullying and corporate control, but the overwritten script seems to lend itself towards a mini-series than a film. All this worked so well in Lone Star, but it just feels muddled and mundane here. Not only do we have multiple characters interacting through a mystery involving age-old corruption, we even have a dead body discovered at the beginning and some daddy issues. While Lone Star's screenplay gave its characters meaningful lines that shed light on their histories and, once in a while, advanced the plot, the dialog here feels repetitive and stagy. Characters talk to themselves for no other reason than to make sure we know what just happened in the scene. With some revisions this screenplay could have been a nice little platform for some fine performances, unfortunately you can sense the showboating from Danny Huston (normally a magnet on the screen) from his first scene. Chris Cooper (can the man do no wrong?) shows a glimmer of magnificence in his far too small role (think McConaughey in Lone Star except Cooper is someone I prefer in a large role), but the rest of the cast feels like a collection of b-list stars hoping to be a part of something big. It isn't without it's moments and you've got to give Sayles credit for making a narrative with little more than a Michael Moore-ian rant against all that he sees wrong with American politics and journalism behind it.

Most of it was second-rate pop/rock, and someone probably thought it would be "deep" and "insightful" to sing about what's going on in the scene! To me it feels a little patronizing, like I couldn't possibly grasp the psychological and symbolic levels without some hippie grooning about it..Mind you, it had it's moments.

This film is very dull to watch, and because of this, there is no fun to be had despite it being about sexy models and photographers being hunted and tortured by a guy dressed as an executioner. This is a B-movie that isn't memorable at all and needs to be forgotten.
(br) wrote: Niven and Brando were both great actors who were just trying to have a bit of fun in BEDTIME STORY. The problem for me is that having FIRST watched Steve Martin and Michael Caine in the 1988 re-make "DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS".... I just couldn't fit Brando or Niven into the roles of Benson or Jamieson that Caine and Martin would come to play so perfectly, decades later. Many of the gags and lines are the same from film to film but at times during BEDTIME STORY, I found myself laughing out loud at Brando's performance (and not for any good reasons either). Brando is not enormously funny in this film. (Great an actor as he is, how can he compete with Steve Martin comedically)? Niven is... well... Niven! He's prim, proper, dry and very British. A role that lacked the subtle, slow-burn reactions that Cain has perfected over his career. BEDTIME STORY is not technically significant in any way. It's filmed in a very straight-forward, gimmick-free style with little or no attention paid to cinematography. The effects are what youve come to expect from a typical 60's era movie and add a certain charm to the overall production but doesn't deliver any real, visual stimuli or set any film-making standards. This film was certainly funny for it's time and clearly... it's brilliance was strong enough for Hollywood to remake more than 20 years later, but for anyone who's seen and enjoyed the much superior DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS.... BEDTIME STORY will serve as a mere curiosity at best. Watch it if you can find it.
