I was so hoping this would be a GREAT film. But in fact it was a huge disappointment. The story is slow, the aliens are not as cute and funny as the trailer makes them out to be. Even my 6 year old and 12 year old were very disappointed. The sister in the story is caught sneaking out of the house to meet her boyfriend, while her brother is hacking into the school computer to change his horrible grades.. Probably not a great thing you want your young kids to see.. There is a younger sister who is cute and makes the movie bearable, she makes friends with one of the aliens. I would not WASTE my money. Some of our favorite movies are Night at the museum, incredibles, toystory, nacho libre and elf..
