Private Asshole and Sargeant Jackoff, two aliens, are sent to planet Earth to impregnate as many Earth women as possible.

Our thoughts:
How is it possible, with a movie like this, that the film is even more stupid than you expect it to be? "Wham! Bam! Thank You, Spaceman!" is breaking all the records of absolutely ridiculous softcore films of the 70's, and that's saying a lot. This was a fucking blast, I just wish I was more drunk when I sat down to watch it. I had to pleasure of watching the softcore version (there's a hardcore version with inserts) from Njutafilms and it entertained me way more than it should have.

Right off the bat we get the plot over with - two aliens are sent to Earth to impregnate our women. Their names? Asshole and Jackoff. What follows is just random scenes of them teleporting women to their ship, they impregnate them, and then send them back without them noticing. What makes this film so entertaining is the dialogue between the two - sometimes it seems like an education tape with absurd references and foul language, other times it's just fucked up and silly. Which works perfectly within a film like this!

The sex isn't graphic since it's a softcore film but we get lots and lots of boobies and some other more or less revealing shots of the human body. But no penetration or anything. The babes are of course of 70's standard, but not bad looking at all. Silly comedy and nakes babes should be enough to be entertaining!

Let's get into the effects real quick too. The masks are terrible - in some angles you can see through one eye-socket and out through the other one. The masks are just big, heavy helmets, really. And the suits are just so typically vintage martians, you can't help but adore it. The spaceship walls are made of foil. I think you know what sort of high standard this movie is. Pure class!

There is no way you can watch "Wham! Bam! Thank You, Spaceman!" without laughing at least once. The movie just doesn't give a fuck - it plays with the fact that it's bizarre and stupid, and makes it work because of it. There's no developing plot though-out, just several scenes of aliens impregnating women, and then they go back. The babes look alright and are worth the time spent between the jokes. I think if you're going to watch a smutty film for laughs, then this is top ranked. If you want to watch a good movie, a sexy porno, fantastic effects or good acting, then this is the worst you could pick. Just look at the screenshots!

Positive things:
- So stupid!
- Good looking ladies.
- Just awful!
Negative things:
- You can't go into this film and expect anything other than crap, so why bother with the negatives?

Gore: 0/5
Nudity: 4/5
Story: 0.5/5
Effects: 0.5/5
Comedy: 3.5/5
