Fans love actress-comedian Julie Brown as much for her 1988 cult movie, Earth Girls Are Easy, as for her ruthless and hilarious 1991 Madonna mockumentary, Medusa: Dare to Be Truthful. The former, co-written and co-starring Brown, and directed by Julien Temple of The Filth and the Fury fame, follows love-starved manicurist Geena Davis, who befriends a trio of fur-covered aliens — Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and their hottie leader, Jeff Goldblum, then Davis' husband — after they crash their spaceship into the pool of her Valley home. The film is more '80s than a can of Aqua Net. (And it was one of the first big roles for Carrey and Wayans before they became stars on In Living Color two years later.) Brown is reviving the story in Earth Girls Are Easy ... It's Like a Musical. Written and directed by Brown and Kurt Koehler, the show features all the central characters, with the addition of new music, as well as Brown's famous songs from the original comedy, including "'Cause I'm a Blonde," "I Like 'Em Big and Stupid" and "Earth Girls Are Easy."
