Buckaroo Bonzai is one of the better known cult films of the 1980s, combining science fiction, comedy, and just a little bit of rock and roll. The title character is a celebrity rock-star/scientist who has an odd entourage of helpers and hangers on who help him in his adventures. When Bonzai travels to another dimension, it spurs an invasion by a bizarre group of ‘Lectroids’ from that dimension.
The cast includes: Peter Weller, Ellen Barkin, Jeff Goldblum, and John Lithgow.
