When you liked Sleeper, then you really should watch Morons from Outer Space. Made in 1985, it is not outdated at all. it is hilarious, funny, and has a lot to say about how we humans really would react to ET's coming to earth. Especially when they would be not of higher intelligience, but... well morons.

"All too often writers or filmmakers come to our science fiction playground and act as if they're slumming. What they're doing isn't really science fiction, they tell interviewers, it's about ideas and people. All this demonstrates is how clueless they are about science fiction."

Well-put. I've added this to my collection of quotable quotes.
