The end of 2020 is approaching, and while the next few weeks are sure to be full of holiday celebrations, you also have some movies to be sure to watch before they leave Netflix!
Like the holiday season itself, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy. Just make sure you act fast.
If you think your family is weird, just wait until you meet the Coneheads. In this 1993 comedy based on a series of classic Saturday Night Live sketches from the ’70s, original SNL cast members Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin star as Beldar and Prymaat, two aliens from the planet Remulak. Initially, the duo heads to Earth to stage an invasion. However, when their ship is shot down, the alien couple does the only logical thing: move to the suburbs and start a family.
The Coneheads’ ill-fated attempts to blend in with regular humans quickly attract the attention of two Immigration and Naturalization Service agents, played by two more SNL alums Michael McKean and David Spade.
But Prymaat and Beldar have plenty of other problems to deal with. For one thing, their teenage daughter Connie, played by Michelle Burke, is getting serious with her boyfriend, Ronnie — portrayed by Saturday Night Live icon Chris Farley — much to her parents’ chagrin. Meanwhile, Beldar has his eye on the local country club’s golf tournament trophy, while Prymaat begins to worry that her marriage is in trouble. And complicating matters even further, a rescue ship’s arrival is imminent, threatening to take Connie away from the only home she’s ever known.
Coneheads is basically a live-action cartoon, which explains why it’s a childhood favorite for many ’90s kids. These days, it also doubles as a time capsule. It’s crammed full of comedy stars from the era, including Seinfeld castmates Michael Richards and Jason Alexander, comedy legends Sinbad, Drew Carey, Ellen DeGeneres, and a whole slew of other SNL cast members like Adam Sandler, Julia Sweeney, Kevin Nealon, Tim Meadows, Phil Hartman, and Jon Lovitz, to name just a few. You will enjoy it. Just make sure you do before it leaves on December 31.
