  • A wild, unpredictable and witty sci-fi comedy in which the survival of the entire human race hinges on the efforts of one man--Buckaroo Banzai. Buckaroo (Peter Weller) possesses an unusual number of professional skills--he's a neurosurgeon, race car driver, rock star, and comic book hero. While testing his jet-propelled Ford Fiesta, he drives through a rock, accidentally unleashing alien criminals from another planet who were imprisoned there. Suddenly, "Earth saver" seems destined to be added to Buckaroo's list of occupations, but not if evil Dr. Emilio Lizardo (John Lithgow) has his way. Less than successful in its 1984 theatrical run, W.D. Richter's wild, anything-goes sci-fi comic book comedy has developed a rabid cult of admirers in the ensuing years.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...It's a lunatic ball, an extremely genial, witty example of what is becoming a movie genre all its own....Hard to top for pure, nutty fun."
    New York Times

    "...Very funny....[Lithgow] gives one of the most controlled out-of-control performances on screen in recent years..."
