One of Saturday Night Live’s signature comedy sketches gets the big-screen treatment, following Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin as stranded cone-headed couple Beldar and Prymatt. (Spoiler: They’re not from France.) Ditching plans for world conquest, they try to blend in by moving to the suburbs and having a family, all while trying to dodge tenacious immigration agents (Michael McKean and David Spade) out to reveal their true identities.
