Earth girls are easy ... comedy is hard
So that leaves us with .... the campy sci-fi flick "Earth Girls are Easy" and vampire comedy/el bombo "Once Bitten." Yikes. His breakthrough on the big screen wouldn't come until 1994 with the release of Ace Ventura, The Mask and Dumb & Dumber.
But back to our fave Carrey 80s classic -- Earth Girls. Carrey joins Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis, Damon Wayans, Julie Brown and Michael McKean in a movie about furry aliens who accidentally crash their spacecraft in a pool in L.A. (That's Jimbo, second from the right in the photo.)
Great quotes too ... not from Carrey because, of course, he's an non-English speaking alien, remember?:
-- "Have a mental margarita."
-- "Just because they're aliens doesn't mean they can't be dates."
-- "No, this is the Valley. Finland is the capital of Norway."
