5.0 out of 5 stars Aliens! June 6 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Love, love, love this kids movie. Very enjoyable. If your youngster is afraid of aliens, this will help them not be as afraid. The children fight them off and there is one good alien in the bunch. Adults can enjoy this one too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aliens in the Attic, comedy, July 12 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is suitable for kids 8 and up, plus adults. They use live action with CGI technology (like Golum in Lord of the Rings) to generate the Aliens. Fun for the whole family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standard formula with only plus the ninja scene Sept. 25 2010
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
This is one of standard formula movies. The family is cute and overtly functional. However, under the covers, kids have problems and parents are dumber than dirt. They vacation in a low-tech environment because its technology that caused this family to be dysfunctional. Of course the parents do not know what technology is so that is why they been a problem on technology. Against know about it all too well so that is why they been the problem on technology.

Nothing with keynote this change in the situation. Therefore, we throw in malicious aliens, goofy zombies, "haven't got a clue" authorities, and ET wannabe, and the kitchen sink. Maybe the kids will learn something from this. Maybe the parents will still go home without a clue. Maybe the authorities go off into the sunset. Maybe we spent X. minutes of our lives.

I am not saying that people who do not appreciate kid's slapstick would not appreciate this movie but they are the only ones that could.

Some of the actors are popular and evidently so is Ashley Tisdale.

For those with a tendency to enjoy this kind of movie I suggest you avoid this movie and watch "The Goonies" (1985).

For technophiles, I only saw the Blu-ray and cannot compare it. However, the visuals and sound is all that is promised.

The Goonies

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Family Fun!!! Sept. 28 2009
By Pumpkin Man - Published on Amazon.com
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars We LOVED it Aug. 1 2009
By Firemom - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly fun family entertainment Aug. 17 2010
By SRFireside - Published on Amazon.com
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. Ashley Tisdale is not the main focus of the movie, but her star quality wasn't wasted on. Although she is swimming in familiar waters with her character good acting is good acting. SNL alumnus Kevin Nealon and Tim Meadows both hit high marks in their comedic timing, even though Kevin mainly plays the straight man in his role. The big kudos, however, go to Robert Hoffman. He plays the jerk boyfriend to Ashley's character, and while the jerk scenes make you love to hate him the real joy in his performance come after the aliens take over his mind and Robert goes off on some of the craziest pratfalls and other physical humor with a hilariously crazy grin on his face. It's comedic gold!

The aliens are funny in a kids will get giggly kind of way. Sometimes they say something funny enough for the adults to snicker (include a funny observation on kissing). But mostly the aliens are for the kid's entertainment and are mostly two dimensional characters with very little to no depth. The CG animations for the aliens aren't bad, but they aren't going to really impress anybody on the technology either. Basically it's serviceable special effects for a production company that likely couldn't pull this off with puppets.

The Bu-Ray for the movie looks really great. Details pop out with a lot of clarity on both the CG aliens as well as the gorgeous backdrop of the vacation spot. Sound is also top notch with the DTS-HD 5.1 audio, but it's not exactly an audiophile reference kind of movie so don't expect to be blown away. Here's a quick rundown of the extras:

Introduction to Film with Ashley Tisdale - Just a quick hello from the move famous actress in the film. No big deal.

The Ashley Encounters - A short promo of the movie from actresses Ashley Tisdale and Ashley Boettcher. I wouldn't be surprised with this aired on the Disney Channel before the movie came out.

Alternate Ending - It's an unfinished product with the CG kind of in the middle phase of production. Not exactly a complete change from the actual ending, but it is different enough. Prefer the real ending anyway.

Behind the Zirkonians - It's a pretty long comic short story about the origins of the aliens. It's not exactly adult fare, but your kids will enjoy it.

Meet the Zirkonians - A little biography of the four aliens in the movie that you can browse through.

Lights, Camera, Aliens! - A short "making of" featurette that's pretty light on details. Feels like another promo for the movie more than an informative documentary.

Kung Fu Grandma - This is funny and weird at the same time. It's like a video game commercial using footage of the movie. The title of this featurette is kind of a spoiler for the movie and I'm glad I didn't know about it before I saw the flick.

Brian Anthony "Electricity" Music Video - It's a music video with clips of the movie. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Fox Movie Channel Presents Life After Film School with Barry Josephson - This is the REAL "Making Of" documentary. It has more details on the film's production than the other fluff featurette, but it's not an all-inclusive thing.

Deleted Scenes and Gag Reel - Didn't get a chance to see these yet. They run about four minutes each and are self explanatory.

If you have kids ranging from grade school to the tweens I believe this film will keep them entertained provided they enjoy watching light science fiction to begin with. Others may enjoy it too for the other fun stuff, but maybe rent first to test the waters. For the adults it really depends on your threshold for this kind of entertainment. The aliens will annoy most of you, but the kids and grown ups in the movie will entertain. If you have a Blu-Ray player it's definitely worth getting if on BD if for nothing else so you can see the beautiful landscapes in high definition.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR THE TWEEN KIDS July 30 2010
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
This is not a film most adults would enjoy as it is designed for kids. Two families go away to the country for the Fourth of July. The kids need to get out and do something away from all their electronic gadgets.

While they are there,small green unfriendly aliens take over the attic and plan on taking over the world. The aliens have devices that can control adults, but not kids. So now it is up to the kids to save the planet using the skills they learned from video games along with modified toys. Ashley Tisdale (Miley Cyrus light) does give the young male viewers a glimpse of her in a bikini.

Acting is bad, script is bad, plot is bad, humor is bad, unless you are under age 13. 5 STARS on the tween scale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for family night Nov. 9 2009
By Anita Margarita - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with several reviews I've read on this movie that 1 - I don't see many adults watching this one without their kids no matter how young-at-heart they are, 2 - the Ricky character and his antics MADE this movie, and 3 - it is almost criminal to have Kevin Nealon, Tim Meadows and Andy Richter together in a movie and not give them more to do.

I have a nine-year old and we watched this together one Friday evening and were entertained through and through. We rewound a lot of the Ricky-the-robot moments.

Seriously, I was really impressed with Robert Hoffman's performance and the physicality of it. I figured out that he must be a dancer pretty early on (I even checked to see if he was in one of the Bring it On movies because of his cheerleader bit), but even his FACIAL expressions were hilarious. Those SYTYCD judges are always saying that to be a good dancer you have to be a good actor. He could build a pretty solid career out of physical comedy roles once dance movies and musicals fall out of fashion again.

I think another large part of my enjoyment was also that I am of the Nintendo generation. I may have kids of my own now, but I "get" video games and why kids like them. So the concept of a Mortal Combat-style battle with live people controlled through video game consoles was very entertaining to me. There were some Matrix-like moves, which has been done to DEATH, but it was with a 70+ GRANDMA, so I enjoyed it without any groans.

As for the underused adult comedians, maybe they were there to pull the adults into the movie seats? KN and TM on Saturday Night Live is when that show was must-see TV for me. That is THE cast in my mind. Or they initially gave them more to do but they realized in the cutting room that this movie is really about the kids? I certainly hope the target audience of this movie don't know who Kevin Nealon is. They do NOT need to be watching his contemporary work.

I will purchase this one, but for my nine-year-old to watch over and over.
