Thankfully, this isn't the kind of child's movie that is a chore for parents to sit through; it's completely winning and adorable.

Overall, positivity and well-paced plot progression combine to make a pleasant, if occasionally shallow, bubblegum ride into eventual emotional payoff.

What a disappointment.

It's not a great animated movie like Up - though honestly, not many films, animated or otherwise, compare to it - but it's probably a great movie if you have children.

It's disposable fluff that small children might enjoy, but everyone else will be bored long before the closing credits arrive.

Home is delightful. It's uncommon to find a family film with a message that lands as effectively yet lightly as this one, and rarer still to find a movie that's so much fun and yet says so much.

Home isn't going to spark any fires, but it's also not a horrible way to spend the afternoon. It's light, and it doesn't leave a horrible aftertaste.

It makes no missteps, and knows enough to focus on its strengths, and some darn cute Boov.

"Home" is a colorful and energetic, sometimes even frenetic, film that children of all ages will enjoy.

Like the mild gags and vocal talents of Rihanna, the animation is constantly bright, maintaining an upbeat tone to the film as typical themes such as friendship and individuality are addressed.

There are plenty of reasons to go see The Martian. Just know the visuals, cast and selective comedy will be worth more than the price of admission.

I can't say Home is the groundbreaking artistic masterpiece of storytelling we all hoped it would be, but I also disagree with idea that every new thing starring a person of color has to be spectacular and perfect.

While this message is not original, it is not negligible either. However, the strategy used to present it is not particularly successful. [Full review in Spanish]

Laced with gentle humor and a few genuine tugs on the heartstrings, this light-spirited romp is joyful, bubbly fun.

Basically, don't put too much thought into this movie, because no one involved in making it did.

Mostly this is one is for the kids. Some quick-witted humour aside there's little new for parents to enjoy, but the offspring will enjoy the snappy pacing, colourful animation and wacky ideas.

Home takes an actual science-fiction story, admittedly toned down and geared towards the younger set, and grinds it up and blends it down into another homogenized family product.

Home is more or less premised on refuting this cruel binary, encouraging kids to rethink conventions or family and otherness, fearfulness and he security of "home".

While adults will be unmoved by this loud, fast-paced movie -- the cinematic equivalent of mainlining liquid Haribo -- younger viewers will lap up the kaleidoscopic aliens and sentimental life lessons.

Not only is the hero a smart, brave 7th-grade girl but she's also an immigrant from Barbados, and a self-described nerd who got an A in geometry. She's even a cat owner. Well done, DreamWorks.
