What a disappointment.
January 31, 2019
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 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.

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]

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

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.
January 2, 2016
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".

Designed with lots of bouncy round shapes and few hard angles, this noisy and colorful 3D film frequently suggests an exploding bubblegum machine; meanwhile, it invites viewers to chew on the political message inherent in the Boovian occupation of Earth.

Home isn't a bad movie at all; it just lacks that intangible "it" factor found in the most successful animated films.

What might be mildly amusing for one minute doesn't become 94 times funnier just because you pad it out to 94 minutes.

This failure is a little surprising given the celebrity voice talent involved, but it proves even great actors need a substantive script.
April 15, 2015
Home is a blithering mess, devoid of internal narrative logic, mired in obnoxious humor, and so poorly paced that its 94 minute run-time felt like it was over two hours long.

Even by DreamWorks standards, the celebrities in this go-round are especially awful, and the music cues particularly distracting.

Home is where my heart wasn't, at a screening where even children didn't seem excited to be. The father snoring next to me had the right idea at the wrong volume. Hiding a catnap behind 3-D glasses only works if you don't give yourself away.

The kindest word that comes to mind is "undistinguished." Unfortunately, it's also uninteresting and uninspired - as well as tedious, noisy, obvious, annoying...

A few nods and winks don't add enough adult appeal to Home
March 29, 2015
Kids will be entertained by the perpetual motion of Home, while most adults in the theater will tune out or glance at the watch every few minutes.

Familiarly fanciful, featuring the most benign aliens ever to invade Earth.
March 29, 2015
Heartwarming and harmless? Sure, why not. But it's also numbing in its simplicity and often rather annoying.
