Tired dialogue and contrived bits make this a "something to do with the kids" type movie at best. Frankly, if I could do it over again I'd just wait to see it on Amazon Instant Videos for free or maybe pay a $2 rental fee....and its barely worth that. But the kids were amused and I've seen worse movies.

Seeing that this is a March Animated release, you should be expecting a mediocre movie. This is exactly that. It was slow at points, lacked witty banter, and Brenden Fraser what as pompous as voice over as he in real life. The story has a cute premise, but dragged in several places. There is no bad language, no sexual innuendo's, but the aliens do kiss at the end. (if you care about that)
My two boys liked it, but they both agreed that "other alien movies" were much better. This is a movie for a matinee or wait for DVD. Or even wait longer to watch it free on TV.

Overall good 'kid-flick' without insulting the intelligence. Good fun, and good to hear some familiar voices. Includes a recognition of some of us 'old-timers' by having a nod to the Beatles.
Clean, funny, tried-and-true plot with a new twist.
Might be worth saving the theatre money and simply buying it when it comes out.

This movie wasn't spectacular but still enjoyable. My 4 year old was asking me when it would be over about 30 min before the end. My 5 year old seemed to enjoy it enough. The 2 10 yo boys I took loved it. Probably best for 7-12 year olds.

Obviously great for kids, but very interesting and funny for the adults. It's funny how different age groups experience something else when watching the same film. All good things in this little movie though. :D
