Cosmic Laughs & Love Film Spotlight: HEARTBEEPS, A Comedic SFR Film So Bad, It’s Actually Kinda Not Good At All


[Introduction: I first blogged about HEARTBEEPS back in 2011. This film is so bizarre and inadvertently funny I figured I'd unleash a revamped post about it for TGE's Cosmic Laughs & Love event. You're welcome!]

HEARTBEEPS (1981), starring Andy Kaufman and Bernadette Peters, has got to be one of the worst science fiction romance films ever made. Possibly also one of the worst comedies ever to hit the silver screen. I can’t even describe how bad this film is. Painfully bad. You-won’t-forgive-yourself-in-the-morning bad. In fact, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy, although on second thought, it might come in handy if Earth needs to ward off an alien invasion using cringeworthy cinema.

Cosmic Laughs & Love: Steampunk Romances That Will Tickle Your Funny Bone



There's a side of steampunk romance that's larger-than-life and over the top, aspects that lend themselves to tales with humorous elements. This genre includes so many fun gadgets and characters that inevitably some of them are going to be funny as well! Plus, quite a few stories feature "opposites attract" hero and heroine pairings, which is a gold mine of both conflict and humor.

As part of this week's Cosmic Laughs & Love event, I'm going to highlight a few steampunk romances that will tickle your funny bone.
