The whole enterprise is frustratingly 'blah' - weak acting, flat storytelling, lifeless direction, murky cinematography.
June 2, 2010
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
August 14, 2009
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.
August 14, 2009
Gremlins meets Goonies meets something stultifyingly inept in a sci-fi adventure for the very young.
August 14, 2009
You could take the kids to see it this summer holiday and avoid an hour or so of rain - or rent the DVD later on. Inoffensive.

Daft battles aside, the film soon takes a predictable turn towards family togetherness and bonding, which is cringing but morally commendable all the same. Ultimately this is a bearable if forgettable film.

Aliens In The Attic is a movie solely aimed at children and it does exactly what it sets out to do. It's nothing more than a harmless comedy for kids and tweenagers chock full of slapstick comedy, cute-as-pie aliens and appealing child stars.
August 14, 2009
This is just a giant slurp of cinematic Sunny D, quenching the thirst for instant fun with CGI sweeteners and a fast-acting concoction of other slapstick additives.
August 14, 2009
Marred by cheapjack CGI and poor character design (the squishy-faced critters look like they came out of a cereal packet, not outer space), this very kid-centric caper is numbingly mediocre.
August 14, 2009
Children below the age of ten may be amused... Older people, by which I mean everyone from 11 upwards, may notice that the movie runs out of ideas within 20 minutes.
