King making a public plea for "Blacks Without Soul," featuring the insipid talents of Don "No Soul" Simmons (David Alan Grier), as well as wacky spoofs of 1950s black-and-white films, including "Son of the Invisible Man," starring Ed Begley Jr. as the batty son who firmly believes he is as invisible as his father--except that everyone can see him--and "2 I.D.s," starring Rosanna Arquette and Steve Guttenberg as yuppies on a disastrous blind date. Everything from tabloid vignettes, 1950s sci-fi films, late-night porn, and infomercials are spoofed in this star-studded collection of skits.

Synopsis:
An irreverent and raunchy foray into the world of late-night television spoofing such media phenomena as infomercials, charity drives, tabloid shockers, late-night porn, and sci-fi movies from the 1950s, AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON is a riotous collection of sight gags, double entendres, and general wackiness in the tradition of KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE and THE GROOVE TUBE. Nothing is sacred in this star-studded vehicle that pokes fun at many of these television wonders. Anyone who has spent an evening surfing the channels can relate to the hysterical formatting of these skits. The crazy sketches include "Mondo Condo," starring Arsenio Hall as a victim of his own apartment; and "Blacks Without Soul," with B.B. King making an outrageous plea to help the black people in the U.S.A born without soul. Infomercials for hair looming and "Silly Pate," "Tastes Great! Bounces High!" are interspersed between the main feature, the late-night movie "Amazon Women on the Moon," a hilarious spoof of cheap 1950s sci-fi movies featuring outrageous sets and costumes. This hysterical farce is packed with celebrity performances and in-your-face satire that mocks a wide variety of pop-culture entertainment.

Notes:
AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON is a sequel to KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE. The names in the "Titan Man" sketch (George Bailey, Violet, and Mr. Gower) are taken from IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Director Russ Meyer and composer Ira Newborn make cameo appearances in the film. The final sketch "Reckless Youth," starring Carrie Fisher, appears after the final credits roll.

Reviews:
"...An anarchic, often hilarious adventure..." - 09/18/1987 New York Times, p.C12


"...Amusing enough to earn return visits....[The] tech credits are great -- appropriately tacky where they should be and top-rate at all other times..." - 09/16/1987 Variety
