Today we’re watching Mars Attacks for a segment we’re calling Yuck the Movies. Because research is hard and sometimes we just wanna watch stuff.
Mars Attacks is a 1996 American science fiction film written by Jonathan Gems and directed by Tim Burton based on playing cards of the same name by the company Topps. In it, various famous people of the 90’s play ridiculous, campy characters when aliens (from mars) attacks. Go figure! Mars Attacks stars Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Pam Grier, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Rod Steiger, Tom Jones, Lukas Haas, Natalie Portman, Jim Brown, Lisa Marie, Sylvia Sidney and a surprisingly kind-of-daddy Jack Black.
We suggest watching the movie before watching this episode. Or not. Whatever floats your boat! We love you just the way you are.
