This largely forgotten 80's SF movie features a couple who find small aliens being held captive in a US government lab facility. The couple were played by the son of a Hollywood character actor, and a former teen rock singer.

 

Name the film and the two stars. For bonus points, name the other actor in the cast who was also the son of a veteran character actor.

Hint: The male lead is not only the son of a veteran Hollywood character actor, he's also the younger brother of two actors, and his daughter and one of his nieces are actresses, too.

 

The female lead was the teenage singer of a rock group. They didn't have a lot of hits, but some of the group's members went on to bigger solo success, and the group was the subject of a biopic within the last decade.

This low budget sci-fi salute to Bad 1950's movies takes its' framework from a famous comedy director's film.  Name the sci-fi movie, year of release, the film it was modeled on and its' director.

I'm taking the same route as LawrenceA. The question threads are not easily navigated, so until TCM makes their update more user friendly, I'm leaving this thread open.

The answers were "Lobster Man From Mars" (1989), and the film's plot framework was based on "The Producers" (1968), but set in Hollywood, not Broadway. The director was Mel Brooks.

The film is on YouTube; to find it, you have to make "Lobsterman" one word.
