"I don't know where we are man.. but it ain't heaven"

"Vicious Lips" is a cult classic.. a SciFi Comedy that is so bad it is actually incredibly entertaining.  Set in the distant future, it still had such an 80's fashion flair and feel.  For fans of the Cantina scenes in the original "Star Wars" movie this wacky flick is a must view.  I totally enjoyed all the references to space adventure movies/tv shows from the past.  Let me put it this way.. the main character in the movie is named Judy Jetson and you will see a "Danger Will Robinson" if you watch closely.

 -

Here's the premise:

An out-of-this-world girl band has a chance for their shot at the big time -- if they can manage to get to the galaxy's hottest night spot, the Radioactive Dream, in time for their gig in this campy sci-fi comedy. But first, they'll have to fight their way through a meteor field, deal with a crash landing on a isolated planet, and manage to avoid a crazied Venusian man-beast who's escaped his cell on his way to prison..

 -

Two things that make this movie totally worth watching are:  the incredible tunes throughout and the fact it only lasts 75 minutes!  

"We're a band Judy.. a band has got to stick together."

Lunar Madness!!  

This movie would have made for a great 80's music video.

It has '80's poster syndrome'; great posters for what are essentially terrible films.

Never seen this one but i love Albert Pyun flicks!
They never released Vicious Lips here so it´s pretty impossible for me to get.

The visual style of the film and the soundtrack must be fantastic.
I loved the Sue Saad and Jill Jaxx tracks in Radioactive Dreams
and this includes more tunes from them.

OMG!!!

This movie is on Netflix instant watch right now I started it last night and finished it this morning.....it's exactly what Valley said...the music alone really is worth watching it for.....you have to go into it knowing it will be cheesy and "b" movie.....

I can't get this song out of my head though
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jobtbkk6psI

it has lines and scenes where you go "what?? why did they even say that" lol

the chicks are actually pretty hot!

I really would recommend a late night viewing for you guys.............I'll say it again..............even just for the MUSIC!

Yeah, I've watched it twice since Valley made this thread. I might have a case of Lunar Madness.

this looks sorta familiar...like a video I might have passed by in the video store on several occasions. But it looks to be worth a gander...I'll have to check this out too.

I'm stoked that this bizarre gem has found a Rewind audience.

The title and the tunes make it worth the time investment. And Muffy is right.. at 2am this movie is an 80's mind melt that sticks with you far beyond the first viewing.

Finally bought and watched Vicious Lips and it sure was fun.

Loved the first 30 mins, the music is fantastic, the fashion rocks and hairs are big.
However, we spend too much time in the ship after the crash and the film loses some magic.

Good stuff anyhow and the girls look great plus we can even see a three breasted woman, years before Total Recall.
Would love to own the soundtrack album!
