Four invading aliens cannot really think their way out of a paper bag, much less conquer Earth with their superior knowledge. Of the aliens, Desmond is particularly thick-headed and leaves Bernard dangling out in space, Sandra attracts the romantic interest of British Commander Matteson, and Julian is along for the ride. After this trio causes a traffic snarl when they land on a British expressway, they are first interrogated and then given jobs in showbiz so they can support themselves. This leads to a great rock singing career, which in turn, leads to a U.S. tour -- though this does not equate rock singers and aliens. Meanwhile, Bernard has been saved from his abandonment in space by an unlikely space-wanderer who drops him off in the U.S., where he is put in an insane asylum. Sure enough, when his three companions start their U.S. tour, Bernard escapes and tries to rejoin them...
