Old v. Gold 218: Earth Girls Are Easy

This week, we hit the 1988 quasi-musical Earth Girls Are Easy, starring the Blum! And also Geena Davis, and pre-In Living Color Jim Carrey and Damon Wayans. Watch music-video director Julien Temple pretty much hijack a few great and funny Julie Brown songs and turn them into a collection of carefully composed shots that might possibly be considered a movie.

Why are you adjusting that flower? You are so Jeff Goldblum right now.
