Invasion of the Star Creatures (1962)

A pair of comical soldiers (Robert Ball and Frankie Ray) investigate a mysterious crater in an atomic detonation area and discover some beautiful alien vixens (Dolores Reed and Gloria Victor) who plan to conquer the world using an army of vegetable monsters.

When I looked this film up on IMDb, I see that it sits below a 3 for some reason. I have no idea how this is possible, as already within the first five or ten minutes the humor makes it so much better than the other science fiction films of its day that are coming in around 4 or 5. Not saying this is a great film, but gee, what a pleasant surprise it was after seeing how terrible everyone else thought it was.

Another reviewer called it a poor man’s Abbott and Costello, and I think that is spot on. My first thought was the same thing, and I might even go so far as to say I like these guys more.
