Los Angeles Times

Feel-good but not cloying, zippy but not frenetic, and refreshingly free of snark, the default setting for a lot of kids' fare these days, the feature takes a pleasingly retro-futuristic stance on matters of décor and attitude.

Boston Globe

By Tom Russo
Colorful as the 3-D aliens-among-us comedy is to look at, though, Corddry is handed a role that’s beige as can be, and so are his castmates.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
The picture has enough entertainment value to tickle its target audience and even offers a few chuckles for accompanying adults. A strong cast and bright -- if uninspired — animation help to offset a thin story.

Unlike say, “Doogal” or “Hoodwinked 2,” at least you won’t want to gouge your eyes out after this one.

A lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle.

The New York Times

By Neil Genzlinger
Escape From Planet Earth makes a tolerable diversion for a winter’s day or evening, just not a memorable one.

Time Out New York

The late Douglas Adams summed up Earth as “mostly harmless,” a description that also applies to this eminently tolerable animated time-filler.

By Laremy Legel
Not recommended for anyone but the hardiest of animation completists, this one is a definite skip. There’s nothing to note, nothing to grasp, nothing in which to find mirth. You could Escape from Planet Earth, but you’re better off just ignoring it.

Austin Chronicle

This movie is a mess: It keeps doubling back on itself – a twisting pretzel of a plot that doesn’t really make sense.

Village Voice

Escape From Planet Earth makes a compelling case for our disposable culture to finally get wiped out by malevolent aliens.
