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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

It doesn't have the richness or depth that Pixar frequently lays claim to, but it's still a pleasing endeavor.

Home does not have Disney's symphonic range of drama, nor does it boast particularly lavish 3D visuals. But from the first beat, it's clear Home isn't going for the big catharsis backed by a power ballad.

Home has good messages, touching moments, cute characters and enough laughs to forgive the fact that most parents have seen this movie before.

When Tip and Oh realize how wrong they've been about so many things, they begin moving toward real maturity and growth. That's something viewers of all ages can appreciate.

The misadventures of this odd couple manage to deliver some laughs, some obvious moral lessons and, yes, lots of musical segues scored with Rihanna tracks.

Despite nifty re-packaging of the animated-feature formula--seemingly daring premise; casually multicultural, international story that's seldom pandering; memorable hero--Home, for all its snappy colours and crackles of joy, never quite pops.

It's a family-friendly movie about, well, family.

Home is meant squarely for kids, but that doesn't mean that accompanying adults will also not find this multi-coloured tale of the importance of friendship and familial bonds, heartwarming.
