Movie Info

A family vacation is anything but restful when young Tom Pearson (Carter Jenkins), his siblings, and his cousins encounter an invading force of tiny aliens who are bent on conquering Earth. The aliens gain control of Ricky, the boyfriend of Tom's sister Bethany (Ashley Tisdale). Using an implant in his brain, they use him to carry out their plot. When Tom learns that the implant works only on grown-ups, he sees a chance to fight off the invaders -- but only if the adults are kept clueless.

Audience Reviews for Aliens in the Attic

  • Nov 29, 2012
    A simple, easy to watch film with some good comedy moments that will enthral children, but nothing for the adult viewer.

    Art Pearson: This isn't Xbox, Lee. It's real! - Like Wii!  "They came from upstairs."  Just a piss poor attempt at a family sci-fi film. Aliens in the Attic is beyond childish, it is to the point where kids will be making fun of how stupid it is. The whole movie is a bunch of talentless child to teenage actors running around fighting small, poorly imagined aliens, while the parents(who are to stupid to notice the aliens) go about their normal lives.  A family goes away for a summer vacation. While there, the kids discover that some midget aliens are arriving and looking for something buried under the house. The kids must stop them all by themselves because the aliens have technology that only works on adults. The film doesn't sound as bad as it is. In actuality, it is a pretty boring and lifeless movie when it comes to these types of stories. Then there's all the horrible, cliche one liners and obvious plot choices that just make the movie repetitive and uninspired. Bad effects and bad acting just add to the misery of sitting through this godawful attempt at family fun. If you are looking for a film to watch with the entire family, look elsewhere because this will be pure torture for anyone over the age of 8.

    I'm sure if I were younger I probably would have enjoyed this a lot more. It was just okay for me.
