This was a great kid's movie, funny, exciting, and with a focus on family. About a family of aliens and how they interact with each other in their lives, it has a sweet story that helps kids to understand how each person is a valuable contributor in each family. It is very action packed, and while I would not call it scary, I would say that there are some parts where really young children might get frightened. Kind of like the old ET movie, I remember my nephew slowly and quietly sneaking onto my lap when ET was in the backyard of the kids' home! He was three years old then. My eight year old grandson had no problems at all. He loved the Scorch character (voice of Brendan Fraser), and I particularly liked the character of Kip. Overall, it was great. At a time when almost every movie at the theater is rated R and packed full of bad language and overt sex, it's good to have something normal to watch.

The stupidest movie I have seen in years. My sister-in-law and I took our boys because it was the only family-friendly movie in theaters currently. Confusing, meaningless plot; stock sarcastic characters with predictable dialogue. Overwhelmingly loud and frenetic. Our boys, 5 and 8 years old, laughed and enjoyed the potty humor and silliness, but you would have to PAY ME to watch this again.

We saw the previews and did a matinee showing yesterday and it was great. The kids loved it - both in 6-10 range.
