THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI, ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION (1984) ***

It’s like coming in half way through the 22nd part of a 24 part Saturday matinee serial.  Peter (Robocop) Weller stars as Buckaroo Banzai, a half Japanese physicist/jet car racer/ rock n’ roll star/surgeon (I probably left some stuff out), who along with his Hong Kong Cavaliers (who include Clancy Brown, Jeff Goldblum, Lewis Smith and Ellen Barkin) stop aliens from invading from the 8th dimension.  Though it tries too hard to be a cult film, it’s still a lot of fun.  The best line is “What’s that watermelon there for?”  “I’ll tell you later.”
