Good but not great

Some great voice performances (Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker and especially William Shatner)graced this animated film, but the story was not all that hot. My nine-year-old granddaughter was bored well before the end.

Don't bother

Saw this in 3D - took my grandchildren. The graphics were good and entertaining - but the plot and dialogue were nothing more than typical political correctness: global warming, military generals as evil, etc. Why can't Hollywood keep their politics to themselves and just entertain. Who cares what they think?

escape to planet earth

This is a brainless film, almost entirely lacking in imagination, It's so derivative but without adding anything to its sources. The adult wisecracking over the heads of kids is lame, stale and predictable. Everything about this film is formulaic. And the endless violence is offensive, since this film is being marketed to young children. The family relationships are shallow. The humiliation between silblings, while "resolved" at the end, falls short of any true emotional understanding. As grandparents, we have seen many children's films with our grandkids. Our 8-year old granddaughter said she "liked" the film, but she said not a word about it afterwards, a sure sign that it meant nothing to her. The creative team at Dreamworks has done, and I'm sure can do, better.

This is a fantastic film for the whole family. It shows how families operate, sometimes disagree but in the long run stick together through thick and thin! We loved and I recommend it highly!

Fun for kids

I took my 2 boys and their friends, ages 5-8. They all had fun. I heard their little giggles and some outbursts of laughter throughout. They had a great time, and I thought it was cute too. Not Oscar-winning, but a good option for a Sunday afternoon!
