Martians Go Home is a 1990 comedy film starring Randy Quaid. It was directed by David Odell and written by Charles S. Haas based on the novel of the same name by science fiction author Fredric Brown.[1][2]


Quaid plays a songwriter who accidentally invites a billion Martians (all portrayed by stand-up comedians from the late eighties and early nineties) to planet Earth.

These Martians become a nuisance to the planet by constantly playing practical jokes and refusing to allow anyone to get away with lying or deception of any kind.
