Comedy inspired by once popular characters from "Saturday Night Live" coasts in on the coattails of "Wayne's World." Aykroyd and Curtin reprise their roles as Beldar and Prymaat, the couple from the planet Remulak who are just trying to fit in on Earth. Newman, who created the role of teenage daughter Connie, appears as Beldar's sister, while Thomas takes over as Connie (toddler Connie is Aykroyd's daughter, in her film debut). One-joke premise is a decade late and a dime short, though cast of comedy all-stars provides a lift.

This movie is weird. It’s about a family from another planet stranded on Earth. They have to make the best of the situation so while trying to figure out how to get home they live like a normal family and have a daughter. Beldar and Prymatt’s daughter enjoys living on earth and doesn’t want to leave. She has a boyfriend and many friends that she will miss if she leaves. Meanwhile, the government doesn’t think the Coneheads are human and think they are up to something. So the Coneheads are trying to hurry home to escape.

Coneheads came out in 1993 and has a total running time of 86 minutes. Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Loraine Newman and Jason Alexander star in this comedy sci-fi film. An alien couple from Remulak come to Earth and are accidently left there. They come to find that they enjoy the way of life on Earth. So they decide to have a daughter and try to make a living here. This family has cone shaped heads, which makes it a little hard to fit in with others. Eventually, the family will have to head back to their original planet.
