I watched this with a Mandarin dub, so the voices of the characters were very fast and all very high pitched. But I was generally impressed with the acting of the young girl (who cross dresses to become the main guy character). The plot of the movie is satisfying in a predictable way. My classmates and I called every single plot twist but overall it was moderately entertaining. If I was watching it by myself I would not have finished it. The computer graphics were choppy for my spoiled modern taste. Watched a lot of character development in both the child and father, which I enjoyed. Overall the alien was really cute and likable, although I really don't understand it's overwhelmingly goodnaturedness. How many times can you return with tail wiggles and cries of joy to the boy who attempted to murder you? I could learn a few lessons from this alien. Overall mediocre - I wouldn't recommend it to anyone or watch it again.
