The cult classic starring Robocop himself, Peter Weller, as Buckaroo Banzai is a fun science fiction adventure worthy of a view. There are so many stars in this film I don't know where to begin, but I will say the character names are by far the best to come out of the 80s.

Buckaroo Banzai is a rock-star/brain-surgeon/comic-book-hero/samurai/etc. who, along with his group, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, must stop evil creatures from the 8th dimension (all named John) who are trying to conquer our dimension. He is helped by Penny Pretty, who is a dead ringer for his late wife, and some good extra-dimensional beings who look and talk like they are from Jamaica.

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"When it came time to film the end titles sequence, where Buckaroo and pals are walking around a dry L.A. aqueduct in step to the music, the music wasn't ready. Composer 'Michael Boddicker' told the film crew to use "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel as a placeholder because it was the exact same tempo. Those scenes were filmed with "Uptown Girl" blaring from a boom box tied to the back of the camera truck. The latitude and longitude recited by the technicians during the "alignment" of the Oscillation"

"Is "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai" a masterpiece? No. But it's fun. And it's incredibly fun if you're watching it as a child, which I did constantly. And the music was badass. "

" Note : What a title... I mean, it is kind of cute but they did really expect us to take this movie really seriously?!? Actually, I haven't seen it so it might be actually completely awesome. Anyway, this was the first and last movie featuring the adventures of the Mighty Buckaroo Banzai. suggested by Jamie"
