    Once again we visit two tried and true plot devices: Stranger in a Strange Land and The Hero's Journey. This colorful and humorous outing is directed by Tim Johnson ("Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas") with a screenplay written by Tom Astle and Matt Ember ("Epic") based on the novel by Adam Rex. This animated PG movie from DreamWorks is entertaining; even the title sequence has a good laugh. Of course the adults find this story more predictable than the children; on the other hand adults are amused by many, many bits that go right over the youngsters' heads (e.g., a reference to metric tools). The voices provided by Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") as the alien Oh and Rihanna ("Annie" - 2014) as earthling Tip are outstanding and mesh perfectly with the excellent animation that conveys their emotions to a "T." They get able assistance from Steve Martin ("The Big Year") and Jennifer Lopez ("Ice Age"), as voices for the self-centered Captain Smek and Tip's sweet mother Lucy, respectively. As is the case with a movie like this, I prefer to focus on what a child (and a parent) might take away: * The importance of friendship: despite a rocky beginning between two very dissimilar beings, friendship is an essential part of life. * Through the eyes of an alien, we see things we view as ordinary: The purring of a cat.... ice cream ("frozen sweetened bovine secretion"). * Remember "Knock-knock" jokes? * The irresistibility of rhythm: watch Oh react to music on the radio. * Tell-tale colors: Oh turns green when he tells a lie and the children in our screening audience spotted it right away. * The longing for family: Oh lost his parents long ago and Tip is trying to find her mother. * Oh is always upbeat and sees the best in everything. "This is the best day EVER!" and "This is the best hiding place in the Milky Way!" * See how difficult it is to cancel an E-vite once the invitation is sent in error ("Reply All"). The plot became a bit convoluted before the inevitable happy ending, but our screening audience was cheerful and chatty as we exited the theater. When people react like this to a movie, I know they had a good time.

    Decent movie for the kids

    My kids really enjoyed this movie and have watched it multiple times. I didn't think it was terrible, but I probably wouldn't watch it more than once. Throughout the movie, the fish out of water jokes didn't make sense. For instance, at one point the alien says that he needs to use the restroom. You hear him through the walls saying that they have "these little mints." Then he screams, "Don't eat the mints!" Then he says, "Oh, they have lemonade!" Seconds later, he screams again, "Don't drink the lemonade!" So, I'm supposed to think that this alien uses the bathroom just like we do, knows what a bathroom is, knows what mints are, knows what lemonade is, but he doesn't know what urinals or toilets are, and doesn't know that lemonade and mints aren't kept in the bathroom. The movie is full of jokes like that.

    I got this movie on sale. When I purchased the film I had no clue how much I would enjoy this movie. I watched this film at least 4 or 5 times. This movie is freaking awesome. I love the connections between the characters especially the bond established between Tip & Oh. I cannot forget pig that cat is so cute and funny. The Boov are aliens who believe they are smarter and better than the human beings. The Boov transported the humans to another world while the Boov live on Earth. However, one human named Gratuity "Tip" Tucci is still on Earth with her cat Pig. Tip searches for her mother, instead she bumps into Oh. I don't want to give anything else away. But the movie is cool. I would definitely recommend seeing this film.

    We originally ordered this movie On Demand and really enjoyed it, but sadly it only lasted for 48 hours. My 3 year old daughter asked to watch it again so many times after it expired that I decided to buy it. I searched other sites for a great deal on the combo pack (BluRay and DVD) because we have a BluRay player in the living room but only a DVD player in the kid's room. I found that Best Buy had the better deal and better shipping options. The movie itself is AMAZING! Such a cute story and adorable characters. The story is interesting enough for children ages 0 to 100 years old. We were all laughing out loud. It has its sweet moments as well. My 3 year old absolutely loved Ohh (the main alien character). Very well written story and great animation.

    I originally rented this movie for my kids on a spur of the moment whim. We kept it for 3 days and my children begged for it for a month. I found it at Best Buy and immediately ordered it. I can say that as an adult, I absolutely love this movie. It is very unique and fun with an emphasis on family and friendship. The music is wonderfully performed by Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez who also play daughter and mother roles, of a mixed racial family, which I absolutely love. All in all this was a wonderful surprise of a movie for me and I think I may enjoy it even more than my children do.

    Movie was fun to watch but the Jim Parsons dialogue can get old and irritating. I get he's supposed to be an alien with normal translation issues, but if you have small children they start mimicking his form of speech. I know, I know, it's just a movie...ok. Adventure is good and the story slightly stirring but it's not going to be in your active rotation often as there are tons of other Pixar/Dreamworks flicks that are much more exciting. This falls into the lazy Sunday B movie category for me. Still worth a buy, but maybe the rental is a better idea.

    This is a fun movie about an alien species (Boov) that invades Earth and relocates all the humans to Australia. One of the aliens (Oh) learns to interact with a human girl (who evaded relocation) and become an individual. Jim Parsons voices the alien Oh and you do of course think of Sheldon from the Big Bang when he talks!. There are some hilarious moments as well as some more serious 'message' moments, but the whole family enjoy this movie. Unfortunately the extras are pretty poor/non-existent but sound and picture quality are as expected fro blu-ray.
