What makes for the ultimate road trip? Hitchhiking, truck stops, angry bears, prickly porcupines and a golfing goose with a duck caddy. Just ask Kate and Humphrey, two wolves who are trying to get home after being taken by park rangers and shipped halfway across the country. Humphrey is an Omega wolf, whose days are about quick wit, snappy one-liners and hanging with his motley crew of fun-loving wolves and video-gaming squirrels. Kate is an Alpha: duty, discipline and sleek Lara Croft eye-popping moves fuel her fire. Humphrey's motto – make 'em laugh. Kate's motto – I'm the boss. And they have a thousand miles to go. Back home rival wolf packs are on the march and conflict is brewing. Only Kate and Humphrey can restore the peace. But first, they have to survive each other. (Lionsgate)

My two boys (8 and 7 years old) loved this movie. Agree with some of the "critic" comments (e.g., the strong sexual tension with Omega....) but my kids didn't pick up on that. I thought it was a very entertaining movie with decent graphics (not great). The kids will like this movie.… Expand
My friends and I love this movie. It's not that terrible. But, I feel that they can improve in certain aspects:
1. The wolves howl with style, but I feel that they can sing some songs as the elders may get bored with their howling.
2. Humphrey and Lilly should have more dialog; they only spoke once.
3. The sexual tension is a little over the line. Younger kids may be confused by this.
Okay, basically, in other words, the movie is about adventure added with romance. Another spoof of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". Anyway, I'll give it an 8.0, as the effects were great and the characters are lively. Just need to add wolves who sing. A-OK.… Expand
Even though I think this movie should improve in certain areas, I do believe that Lionsgate did a good job on it. The wolves's howls were very creative and you could hear the emotion in their tones. Without doubt, all of the music composed in A&O was truly astounding. Nevertheless, I just wish the actual movie showed the same kind of care that the creators put in while making the music. Although this film may not be comparable to Toy Story 3, it certainly doesn't equivalate with the disastrous Shark Tale. I do expect the sequel, Alpha and Omega 2, to be better by means of plot and animation.… Expand
