An anthology of comedy shorts and sketches based around the broadcast of a spoof 1950s sci-fi movie.

French writer Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr once noted that the more things change, the more they stay the same and how right he was because Amazon Women on the Moon, despite being made in the 1980s, is as largely relevant today as it was back then. Yes, the fashions and the technologies change but the sentiment and the ideas that are being parodied remain as funny and sharp as they did 30 years ago, which is quite depressing when you think about it.
