I especially liked the daughter's brain-dead headbanger boyfriend who wears a W.A.S.P. t-shirt for the entire movie. Blackie Lawless for the win!
That's the same actor that played Uncle Rico in NAPOLEON DYNAMITE
I'm watching on TCM right now. Did nobody notice at the beginning, that the alien base where they "beam" out the monsters is an upside down plastic model of the USS Enterprise from the original Star Trek with the warp engines removed. I literally laughed out loud when I saw that.
I watched it too, and no I didn't notice. Nice catch.
