Escape From Planet Earth
On the planet Baab, dashing astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero and master of daring rescues. However, Scorch does not work alone; his nerdy brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA, often lends quiet, behind-the-scenes support. When a distress signal arrives from a dangerous planet, Scorch ignores Gary's warnings and sets out on a rescue mission. Scorch soon finds himself caught in a trap set by an evil enemy, and it's up to Gary to save him.

Science-fiction films seem to be flooding the theater, beginning with “Interstellar” and “Big Hero 6.” We know it can sometimes be difficult to make it to the theater with the whole family, so here are four sci-fi movies currently streaming on Netflix that kids are sure to enjoy.
When the Szalinski teenagers and a couple of neighbors stumble upon their father’s twitchy shrinking machine, an adventure of giant proportions begins. It’s hard to say which is scarier, the giant insects in the backyard or the teens’ mother when she finds out her kids are the size of fleas.
Like a lot of movies starring Rick Moranis, “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” is full of silly slapstick comedy you can’t resist giggling at despite yourself, and it’s obvious that the Szalinskis are one of the most loving families on the big screen.
His genius finally recognized by his idol, Chester V, inventor Flint Lockwood gets to join Chester's company, where he can work full-time on technologies to help mankind. However, Flint soon discovers that his most-famous machine, which turns water into food, is still operating and now creates animal/vegetable hybrids. With the fate of humanity in Flint's hands, he and his friends set out to save the world from tacodiles, shrimpanzees and other deliciously dangerous creatures.
“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” doesn’t quite live up to its predecessor, but it’s still a silly adventure kids are sure to enjoy.

With wholesome themes of family and friendship, “Escape from Planet Earth” will tickle your kids’ funny bones from beginning to end.
Meg Murry is having a difficult time. Her father, astrophysicist Dr. Jack Murry, has mysteriously disappeared after experimenting with time-travel in the fifth dimension. Her youngest brother, Charles Wallace, a genius, is teased and belittled and thought to be stupid because he does not talk to anyone but family. But with the help of the mysterious, weirdly dressed Mrs. Whatsit, and her friends Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, Meg, Charles Wallace and their new friend Calvin O'Keefe travel via tesseract to other planets in search of Dr. Murry.
Based on the book of the same name, “Wrinkle in Time” is one of the most imaginative adventures in science fiction. Besides giving a lesson on physics and hypothetical time-travel, this movie also teaches courage, kindness and the value of knowledge.November 13th, 2014 · Details
This is a very good movie to watch with the kids. I didn't really find it that funny but the kids around me were rolling on the ground. Good family themes too.April 26th, 2014 · Details
Good entertainment for the kids. The story was not strong enough to hold adult attentions, but it was good enough to make the kids laugh. There was good character development for all of the main characters. Overall, Escape From Planet Earth was silly fun.July 20th, 2013 · Details
