I absolutely loved this movie! I loved the comedy, the storyline, the action, the effects, everything! This may be my 4th favorite movie of 2009 behind Friday the 13th, Land of the Lost, and Halloween II! I've seen a lot of negative reviews toward this movie, but some people take things a little too seriously. This movie is for the kid in all of us. While on summer vacation, the Pearson family go to three-story holiday house in the middle of nowhere. The kids; Hannah, Tom, and Bethany don't wanna go, but they are forced to. They meet more family members like Jake, Art, and Lee. When Bethany's boyfriend forces Tom to the roof, they see the aliens who want to take over the world. Throughout the day, the kids try to stop them, without their parents finding out. One alien, Sparks is not a threat to the humans and decides to become friends with Hannah. Sparks is a cute little alien, unlike Skip, Tazer, and Razor. Will the Pearson children stop the evil aliens from taking over the world? I highly recommend ALIENS IN THE ATTIC!!!

My almost 9 year-old son and I saw this together. It was VERY, VERY funny. We both thought so. (There were way too many male crotch gags, in my opinion, and of course, the law enforcement representative was an idiot. However, we didn't see his underwear; so, this movie was superior to other kid flicks.) Robert Hoffman is outrageously funny as Ricky the lying-loser boyfriend turned robot alien minion. Ashley Tisdale carries off another major role with credibility, humor, and grace. The DVD is already on my son's wish list for Christmas, and I will be recommending Aliens to my friends to watch with their kids. I will also recommend it to parents of teenage daughters who need a laugh, a break, or a reminder that Eddie Haskell didn't die with the Cleavers.

Before I saw this movie the previews gave me the impression that this was just another computer animated and effects driven films trying to exploit a kid's inherent interest in this stuff. It turns out this movie has more thought put into it and a good deal more heart than I assumed (that's what I get for assuming). Aliens in the Attic isn't an instant classic by any means. However it delivers on what you want in a family sci-fi film. Cute enough in some places, witty enough in others.

So yeah, the plot isn't Shakespeare. You have a family on vacation that gets visited by some diminutive (and not too bright) aliens bent on taking over the world. This plot is very close to the same vein as the 80's movie Spaced Invaders. The difference, and it is substantial enough to keep the two movies from being similar, is where the focus is. Where Spaced Invaders put all of its attention on the wacky Martians, Aliens in the Attic puts its focus on the kids and how they deal with the invaders. For this movie it makes all the difference.

You see, the chemistry between the kids is tight. The main boy and his crazy cousins, lovelorn big sisters and a cute little sister all mesh their respective personalities into a coherent plot progression rather well. There isn't a whole lot of character development once the individual players have been established, but you don't need that much since the script capitalizes on the interactions. I'm not talking about two dimensional character clashes sort of capitalization. This movie shows a good example on how differing personalities can work together.

The acting is surprisingly good for these kids. All of them play their parts solid with nary a bad scene in the bunch.

I'm not sure why I love this movie so much. The script is nonsensical, the acting is second rate, but it is one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen. It stars Ashley Tisdale from Disney's "High School Musical" movies. And I really adored the twin brothers Henri and Regan Young. The title just about describes the movie about some kids and teens doing battle with invading aliens. And you don't want to miss Doris Roberts doing her acrobatic karate moves while she is under the control of the aliens. This movie is a riot. It's so bad it's good.

i can't quite put my finger on why I love this movie. Maybe it's the slapstick revenge on the jerk boyfriend, maybe its that Andy Richter is classically awesome, or perhaps it's the warm fuzzies I get seeing the kids work together to combat the aliens wreaking havoc on their vacation. This is one of a minute number of films for which I don't inwardly groan in response when my kids want to watch the same movie repeatedly.

This move is a lot of fun; it's about kids on an elaborate vacation in a nostalgic time-share that is reminiscent of extended family life, clean water and air. The scenery is lovely and the colors are soothing although there are loads of things going on with the children and the aliens. They seem to be in a location that looks more like a lush camp ground area and the grown ups are null-n-void when the kids start squealing and doing what they do best -Tearing up everything and almost tearing down the house. This is one of those movies that I like to keep on while I am doing something else and checking out the exciting scenes every now and again.
The scene where the kids try to call the operator on a rotary phone is akin to the new digital phone system just before you re-program all of your phone numbers in the phone again (if you are calling across the hallway you still have to punch in your area code and then the remaining seven numbers)because all of the calls are like local long distance.
