Even at age 10 I felt like a complete idiot for staying up late to watch this witless little cheesecake-girl sci-fi parody. The goofy, though not especially funny story has two bumbling male leads falling all over themselves in lustful pursuit of some comely moon-cuties. Meanwhile, a couple of lumbering fellows in Danskin tights with potato sacks on their heads(the so-called "Star Creatures" of the title) are wreaking very minor havoc.
For even aspiring to be as little as lowbrow camp, this is actually a pretty rough ride. If I had seen this at a drive-in in 1963, I surely would have driven my vehicle full-speed through the movie screen in a fit of consternation(or at least demanded my sixty cents back). Perhaps today, as an adult, I'd have a better time with "Invasion of the Star Creatures"(Bacardi 151 in hand, of course...)
**UPDATE, May 2010** I did indeed revisit this sub-B movie, and as I suspected, it actually IS a more worthy watch today as a tragically dated cultural artifact of sorts. One particular line of dialog is exemplary of this -
"...wow...that's the first time a salad ever tossed *ME* !".
That one probably brought forth a few weak chuckles in '63...presently, some folks might fall on the floor in hysterics...
