HOME (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Stars ììì

an animated movie that doesn’t know what an ‘ending scene’ means. Every time one thinks the ending of the movie has arrived, it starts up again…and again…and again…and again. Finally! The movie ends. Thank goodness. The film has elements of enjoyable entertainment, but performs far outside the quality scope of other DreamWorks Animation productions, like The Croods (2013).

A group of aliens run and hide whenever they are threatened by outside forces. Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons), an accident-prone member of this community, makes a mistake and sends a party invitation to the entire universe. This invitation has the potential of revealing the community’s latest hiding place to the community’s largest enemy threat. Captain Smek (voiced by Steve Martin) tries desperately to stop the invitation delivery before it reaches his nemesis, Gorg (voiced by Brian Stepanek).

Additional Thanks

Good work by Director Tim Johnson. Thank you to Producers Suzanne Buirgy, Christopher Jenkins, and Mireille Soria for making the film possible. Additional characters/voicing cast include: Gratuity 'Tip' Tucci (Rihanna), Lucy Tucci (Jennifer Lopez), and Kyle (Matt Jones).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Despite its flaws, children will enjoy its 'quirky' storyline and its action scenes.
