Escape From Planet Earth Reviews

An animated film that goes lamely where many have gone before.

Just like its hero and his grounded starship, Escape From Planet Earth is, for much of the film, a decidedly earthbound adventure.

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.

A children's movie about space-traveling blue beings that has lots of high-flying escapades but fairly low aspirations.

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.

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.

It ... provides a few smiles, and a decent amount of rainy-day, kiddie entertainment.

A sci-fi chuckler that somehow manages to elude tedium, despite being a revisionist rip of rival 'toons, from Pixar on down.
