Oscar nominees Peter Weller and John Lithgow team with Emmy winners Ellen Barkin and Christopher Lloyd in this fiendishly clever sci-fi comedy. Neurosurgeon, nuclear scientist, and rock musician Buckaroo Banzai (Weller) and his crime-fighting team, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, are called upon to save the world when his sworn enemy, the demented Dr. Lizardo (Lithgow), devises a plot to destroy the Earth. The extra-dimensional battle could result in total annihilation of the universe! Dismissed by many critics as ‘strange’ and ‘unintelligible’ at the time of its release, the film has amassed a loyal fan following and is included in many Top Cult Films lists. (1984, PG, 103mins)
