Kids liked it. Had some funny lines. Overall, left something to be desired.

I took my 8 year old daughter to see this movie, she seemed to enjoy it and it was appropriate for kids. Although I must admit that I fell asleep 3/4 of the way through the movie. Long story short good for the kids, good nap time for the adults.

The young ones found this film amusing enough. There were certainly enough pop culture references and valentines to sci-fi and 50s movies to engage adults. Still, overall, the film fell flat. The plot was cliched, hackneyed, contrived, and full of many holes. The characters were way over-caricatured. The animation was decent but certainly not world-class. In many ways, the film seemed to be a Target or Kohls version of an animated movie as compared to a Neiman Marcus. It had the feel of a much older technology (think "Antz") and just wasn't the sort of slick animation we've come to expect. It was all very bargain basement. when you can see this movie at the $1 at all times second-run venue (do they still exist), or buy it from the $5.99 bargain DVD bib, it's worth it. Otherwise, save your hard-earned dollars for something of higher caliber that begs to be seen on an actual move screen.
