    Home is like when someone gets you a birthday present by just clicking on an item from your Amazon wish list. It's well-made, suitable, and appreciated, but there wasn't really any thought put into it.

    A charming concoction with positive messages for younger children about conquering fears, understanding outsiders and knowing yourself.

    A drab dream with squirmy-cuddly aliens, floating space bubbles and too many Rihanna musical interludes.

    The problem is, the story lacks originality and zest.

    If DreamWorks Animation is hoping to get back on track with this movie, a lavish sci-fi comedy based on a recent children's book, they're pretty much doomed.

    This colorful masterpiece is so cute and behind all the music there's a feeling putting into it, a beautiful message. It's funny, brilliantThis colorful masterpiece is so cute and behind all the music there's a feeling putting into it, a beautiful message. It's funny, brilliant and ageless. Imaginative and 1 of the best animated movies of the 10's. Oh it's an amazing role and the story don't make sense at all but that's the best part it doesn't have to be realistic, it's an animated movie so no one cares. Good job for Rihanna though. Expand

    Dreamworks is probably my 3rd favorite animation company behind Disney and Pixar. So when I heard they were releasing only 1 movie this year IDreamworks is probably my 3rd favorite animation company behind Disney and Pixar. So when I heard they were releasing only 1 movie this year I was kinda sad. The characters are Oh and Tip. Jim Parsons is a good actor and all but he's pretty much playing Sheldon but an alien. Tip is ok too but the movie focuses on the Boov so much that she doesn't get to develop a personality that much. I think Rihanna should just stick to music making. But the biggest problem with this movie is the story. It feels like 5 plots were mixed in a blender and the filmmaker s just went with that.The jokes basically consist of toilet humor, my least favorite. The animation is ok I guess. Dreamworks, if u want to get back on you feet this film isn't helping u. 6/10 Expand

A species of Jar-Jar Binkses attack the planet. The central Jar-Jar befriends a creepy, ugly, zero-dimensional black girl who sounds like an adult Rihanna, who apparently is pretty far from being a voice talent. Than practically sit in a car for an hour. Peabody and Sherman seems sophisticated compared to this...
    Rated one, because zero's reserved for especially wretched movies.
    The music sucks too. But I guess that's mandatory since they only have Rihanna providing the soundtrack.
