The 1987 sci-fi comedy film Amazon Women On The Moon is a parody of low-budget films that was produced by John Landis and Robert K Weiss. It stars a large ensemble cast including Carrie Fisher, Sybil Danning, Michelle Pfeiffer, Monique Gabrielle, B.B. King, Steve Guttenberg, Joe Pantoliano, Arsenio Hall, Rosanna Arquette, Joey Travolta, and more.
The movie is a series of sketches. It is set up as a broadcast from WIDB-TV which is attempting to air a classic movie called Amazon Women on the Moon, which stars Sybil Danning and Steve Forrest.
However, the film goes off air due to technical problems and the viewer starts changing channels, watching bits of different late-night films. Every once in a while the viewer returns to WIDB and catches a bit of the original movie.
The sketches include a doctor delivering a baby and then trying to hide it, a suspicious woman on her first blind date, a man who is roasted at his own funeral, video pirates who capture a ship full of VHS tapes, and random commercials featuring bizarre products.
When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
