Serious Jest:  (Free View)  I deliberated between 2 and 3 mugs for a bit.  This is a silly movie with a weird concept, and if you never see it you will probably not have missed out that much.  However, if you are bored and want to throw something on that will hold your attention and give you a few chuckles, you won’t feel like you wasted your time watching this film.  I settled on 3 mugs because I have fond memories of the Conehead skits on Saturday Night Live, the acting was very good (from the the lead roles, as well as the long list of supporting roles and cameos by some of my favorite SNL alumni), and the comedic writing–while not always ROTFLMAO-funny–is pretty clever.
