The whole enterprise is frustratingly 'blah' - weak acting, flat storytelling, lifeless direction, murky cinematography.

Cute protagonists, sensible morals and refreshing lack of complexity make Aliens in the Attic a bit of guilty pleasure.

Remarkably unremarkable; a lively war of the worlds diversion with plenty of spunky special effects, gratuitous slapstick, and Ashley Tisdale parading around in a bikini for all the dads out there.

Aliens In The Attic might fall between a key audiences but will certainly provide a rip-roaring time for both tweens and younger kids, never mind the parents who are seemingly dragged along.

Disliking Aliens in the Attic because it is so blatantly aimed at kids is like disliking the desert for having no water in it . . .

Amiable, kid-oriented slapstick...

What it lacks in originality and creativity it makes up for with action and a talented cast that breathes life into its thinly drawn characters.

You get the feeling that the Aliens in the Attic video game probably has more to offer.

Hilarious? No. But will you hate your kids for begging to see it? Nooooo.

Despite a lacklustre beginning, this family film manages to keep its audience entertained right through to the end.

Getting past the passages of forced teen coolness, this likable sci-fi romp brings some PG-tastic fun.

Undemanding and occasionally lol, Aliens in the Attic will have the youngsters in stitches at some of the fight scenes... entertaining and sometimes goofy family comedy

Cue some uninspired but reasonably entertaining mayhem. The aliens are mediocre CGI bipeds who wouldn't last 10 seconds against a horde of Gremlins.

Uninventive family comedy.
Derek Malcolm
London Evening Standard
August 17, 2009
The aliens look like cast-offs from a bad Spielberg film and the whole family are boring examples of Hollywood's ordinary Americans.
| Original Score: 2/5

If I saw ALIENS IN THE ATTIC twenty years ago, I would have recommended it. But now that the bar has been raised for family films, I would say wait for the dvd, and only if you're a parent.

Fleeting charms are largely outweighed by an unexceptional script, a brace of shabby performances (from both kids and adults) and some dismal CG effects.

This is one of those once-seen-immediately-forgotten enterprises which avoids anything memorable or imaginative in favour of fast, functional, charisma-free busy-ness.

Gremlins meets Goonies meets something stultifyingly inept in a sci-fi adventure for the very young.
