Mars Attacks

Weekly Alibi


REVIEWED: 12-11-96

Director Tim Burton is off on another of his trademark larks. Based on the campy Topps trading card series from the 1960s, this star-studded sci-fi parody follows a diverse group of Americans (the President, a Las Vegas casino owner, Tom Jones) as space invaders from Mars try to blow up the Earth. Hilarious, and a perfectly timed jab at ID4.
