An animated film that goes lamely where many have gone before.
| Original Score: C-
Just like its hero and his grounded starship, Escape From Planet Earth is, for much of the film, a decidedly earthbound adventure.
| Original Score: 2/4
Colorful as the 3-D aliens-among-us comedy is to look at, though, Corddry is handed a role that's beige as can be, and so are his castmates.
A lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle that should delight small children and sporadically amuse their parents.
It never discovers new worlds, but "Escape From Planet Earth" is, in its genial way, escape enough.
| Original Score: 3/5
A children's movie about space-traveling blue beings that has lots of high-flying escapades but fairly low aspirations.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Has it all for people looking for nothing.
| Original Score: D+
Passable animated entertainment is stronger on humor than adventure.
The late Douglas Adams summed up Earth as "mostly harmless," a description that also applies to this eminently tolerable animated time-filler.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's a bowl of warm water into which no one has bothered to place a bouillon cube. The kids in the theater with me never mustered a single laugh or gasp of excitement. It's plenty o' nuttin'.
It's unchallenging fun for a younger crowd, but adults might feel like they're staring down a colorful 24-piece board puzzle, trying to figure out how such a simple activity could be drawn out over 90 minutes.
| Original Score: C
It ... provides a few smiles, and a decent amount of rainy-day, kiddie entertainment.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A sci-fi chuckler that somehow manages to elude tedium, despite being a revisionist rip of rival 'toons, from Pixar on down.
