A fun movie for the familyJanuary 27th, 2011 · Details
The jokes were crude and not funny, the storyline is ok, but everything else is sub-par. Just not worth it.June 8th, 2011 · Details
What a fun show! I like the angle it took. Humans were the aliens for once. It was an innocent and fun twist to what you'd expect when dealing with an animated film about alien visitors to a planet.
Little kids would be fine watching this. The entire family can enjoy it. It's refreshing.July 27th, 2012 · Details
