Just how much of this will be appreciated by children is questionable, but the film is clearly intended to keep them happy with lashings of colour, movement and cheesy jokes while older, diehard geeks can enjoy all the reference spotting.

There's enough of a storyline here to keep younger space cadets moderately settled.
December 4, 2009
A hideously annoying and emotionally blank tale.
November 24, 2009
This has the directionless, recycled feel of a script by committee.
November 24, 2009
An uninspired computer-animated feature that may satisfy undiscriminating pipsqueaks and nearly no one else, Planet 51 is a low-IQ E.T. in reverse...

Young children and adults with high pain thresholds will enjoy the movie during its brief pause on the way to your On Demand menu.

The whole thing is just terrible.
November 20, 2009
This sharp-looking but unimaginative adventure hasn't the wit of similar kiddie flicks.
November 20, 2009
The movie as a whole isn't exactly ground-breaking, and some of the humor tanks. But it has enough action, laughs and candy-hued visuals to satisfy the target audience without plunging grown-ups into despair.

With nowhere to go except toward that incongruous moral, the story is getting thin on the ground, obliging director Jorge Blanco to pad with the usual plush stuffing -- bland action and busy edits.
November 20, 2009
The script lacks wit, and the in-joke references to cinematic sci-fi classics will soar over little kids' heads without pleasing many adults.
November 20, 2009
Definitely a planet worth a visit.
November 20, 2009
Mediocre, clunky and just so not special.
November 20, 2009
The agreeable but flagrantly unoriginal Planet 51 belongs to the mix-and-match school of animated moviemaking.
November 20, 2009
"Singin' in the Rain" references? John Glenn? Cold War duck-and-cover drills? What time capsule yielded this script?

Planet 51 is cute, but it's no Shrek.

Rest assured that nothing of significance will disturb said infant, neither feelings nor images nor ideas. No danger here; just a faint, faraway tickle of boredom.
