      Zack Y Best movie I have ever seen. I watch it everytime I'm hungover and it makes me feel better. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Sean G This is definitely worth a watch if you want a cute movie but certainly won't change your life. Passed the time. I found myself engaged in the characters. Cute kids and fun storyline embarrassing the jerk teen boyfriend. The young kid's "E.T." plot line with the alien was cute. I would watch through once if you want a cute kid's movie but I'm sure there's better out there. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review Pedro G Buena película, una buena cinta para pasar un buen rato. Esta es una película con una historia simple, que va al grano en todo momento y su único propósito es mantenerte entretenido durante hora y media. Es una cinta fácil de ver, tiene un humor que para mi no esta nada mal, podes llegarte a reír con algunas escenas o diálogos, lo cual es un gran logro. No presenta muchas cosas que te sorprenden como algún giro de trama ni nada, creo que lo mejor que tiene la cinta es que es bastante entretenida ya que por lo demás es bastante simple. Por otro lado, los efectos de los aliens están bastante bien logrados, ninguno se llega a ver mal. Otra cosa para destacar son las actuaciones, principalmente las de Austin Butler, Carter Jenkins, Ashley Tisdale, Robert Hoffman y Ashley Boettcher. En conclusión, una buena película que no esta nada mal para pasar un buen rato viendo algo corto y entretenido, que te pueda sacar alguna que otra risa. La recomiendo. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Joseph H It bad, kids made haha funny video game xbox halo reference and I could care less. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review paula s Olá amigo meu coração tá bom mas não sei onde fica esse aqui do gado temporada Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Henry P It was a film that passed the time.

      Ben Kenigsberg Time Out Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Philippa Hawker The Age (Australia) You get the feeling that the Aliens in the Attic video game probably has more to offer. Rated: 2/5 Sep 3, 2009 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard The aliens look like cast-offs from a bad Spielberg film and the whole family are boring examples of Hollywood's ordinary Americans. Rated: 2/5 Aug 17, 2009 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Aliens in the Attic is simply your standard issue, paint-by-numbers family film likely to be most successful with smaller children. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 1, 2020 Full Review Nikki Baughan Roll Credits As a piece of cross-generational cinema, Aliens falls rather flat but as a dedicated children's film released into prime school holiday territory, it does exactly what it says on the tin. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 29, 2019 Full Review Debbie Baldwin Ladue News OK, it is a little derivative, but the young actors are all very convincing and Robert Hoffman does some terrific physical comedy after his body is commandeered by the alien leader. Rated: 6/10 Nov 14, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
