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

The aliens look like cast-offs from a bad Spielberg film and the whole family are boring examples of Hollywood's ordinary Americans.

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

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

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.

Jenkins is a bit too McDreamy to play the geeky underdog, and adult viewers will be nostalgic for the chubby, bucktoothed and truly dorky cast of The Goonies.

Basically a tweener cable movie on steroids, with a bigger budget and a larger cast of B-list character actors.

It appears designed for families who never leave the mall.

A forgettable bit of fluff that will zip out of your orbit as soon as the credits roll.

It's doubtful that many people will be asking for their money back after seeing this movie. But they won't be remembering too much about it 24 hours later, either.

The ensuing war of the worlds is waged with weapons as fearsome as a bubble blower, a skateboard, and a sort of anti-gravity grenade that, frankly, looks like a lot of fun.

Like those mild old Disney comedies of the '60s and '70s, it seems perfectly content with being a harmless distraction.

The extraterrestrials get title billing but Hoffman steals the show.
July 31, 2009
Writers Mark Burton and Adam F. Goldberg pretty much let their imaginations go wild.
July 31, 2009
Stupid movie, right? But kid-friendly.
July 31, 2009
Unfortunately the child actors aren't particularly engaging, and the gags aren't entirely fresh.
July 31, 2009
Aliens in the Attic is so thinly written by Mark Burton and Adam F. Goldberg that the characters are defined entirely by the actors playing them (or, in the case of the f/x-spawned aliens, voicing them).
