ALIENS IN THE ATTIC (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Aliens in the Attic—a little scary, a little comedy—marks itself with just the right mix to appeal to the wider audience for entertainment value. The movie wisely chooses cast built on a family’s wide span of generational ages who are each involved in the interests appropriate to their ages and then throws them into situations quite inappropriate to those ages. This enables comedy to break the horror of the quite terrifying aliens living in the attic and makes this a movie worth watching for the whole family. The presentation is intriguing, and the acting is fair/good. The writing is solid, Disney-style story-telling that relies on honest, clean delivery that is fresh and quite welcome. The animation of the aliens is still great 13 years later with no lack of creativity in mixing the animated world with the human world. Watch for Ashley Tisdale’s very good performance as the teen in the middle of young love. 


Aliens endeavor to retrieve something that belongs to them while a family tries to vacation in a leased vacation home.
