Maybe "What Planet Are You From?"?
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0181151/

It doesn't exactly match your description, but it has John Goodman in it.
"My Stepmother Is an Alien"?

Trailer:

Full movie is on Youtube:

I think that's the movie you are looking for. I think Dan Aykroyd is the guy, not John Goodman.
Thanks for answer, but unfortunately it's not that movie.  I believe the female alien had brown hair, and also I think it's from the 90s and further :-(
Oh, I was pretty sure that's the one. Well, the search continues then...:)
Was it a comedy too? Or something like the "Species" series?
Here's another suggestion, but Alan Thicke doesn't look like John Goodman:

"Stepmonster" (1993)
From IMDb:
Todd Dougherty has an imagination driven by comic books. So, when he accuses his soon-to-be stepmother of being a monster, no one believes him. When neighbors start turning up dead, it becomes a race against time for Todd to stop this hideous, carnivorous creature from marrying his father and ruining his life.

EDIT: Here's the movie trailer on YouTube:
