Morons from Outer Space (1985)

Morons from Outer Space is a comedy/sci-fi film directed by Mike Hodges and starring amongst others, BBC television's humorous double act of Griff Rhys Jones and Mel Smith.  There’s nothing especially interesting or noteworthy about it....  You may chuckle a bit but you’ll never get the hour 'n' half of your life back!
And that's about it really except to say; that yes, those are indeed the Outland backpacks and space helmets making a return to the big screen.  But do note that those; lots-of-glittery-little-tiny-lights at the front, ideal for illuminating the moviestar features of Sean Connery, have all been replaced with some kind of unflattering overhead lamp more in keeping with the less bankable features of a television personality.
It seems that film, much like life, is unfair and maybe that is one of the reasons that this man soon took up work on the other side of the camera.
