Review of "Aliens in the Attic" on DVD

7:36 PM


Whew! What a ride!

That's what we kept saying after watching that rather odd, but very funny Aliens in the Attic, which was just released on Nov. 3rd! We had the wonderful opportunity to do a sneak peek of the film, and we have watched it no less than 6 times since we received it! (No kidding!)

Here's what we LOVED about the film:

  • The creatures, while a bit evil, weren't too scary. (In fact, one was lovable and even became a friend of the kids.)
  • The action scenes weren't too violent. There were a few "slapstick"moments that actually had me in tears, it was so funny. But nothing that would leave a kid scared.
  • There was some romantic banter between leading lady Ashley Tisdale and her over-aged boyfriend that was obvious to adults that it was a bit ill-intentioned. The brothers step in and keep it clean, however, as this film continually enforced family values between the kids and encouraged team work.
Was there anything we would have done differently? Not really. Outside of one or two personal injuries (which were really deserved, believe me) and a swimsuit shot, this was a pretty clean film and deserving of a PG rating. Kids as young as 4 can follow along and laugh, and adults (while they may find it reminiscent of Gremlins meets Batteries Not Included), will have some fun, too.

And the fact that the kids and parents end up closer in the end? Priceless.

  7. I have yet to see this movie, but I have to admit that I would like to see it. Having a five-year-old, I often watch many kids movies that I would not normally watch. However, many times they turn out to be great movies. When I saw the preview to this movie, my daughter automatically said "Can we go see that at the theater?" Well, we never were able to, but I told her that when it comes out we can add it to our Netflix list!! I am sure it will be a long wait for this movie. It looks funny. Thanks for the giveaway.
