A family vacation is anything but restful when young Tom Pearson (Carter Jenkins), his siblings, and his cousins encounter an invading force of tiny aliens who are bent on conquering Earth.

When Tom learns that the implant works only on grown-ups, he sees a chance to fight off the invaders -- but only if the adults are kept clueless.

    Nowhere near as bad as "Coneheads," but still isn't worth your time. show more

    The movie is awfully close to a video game with its own specific rules, but its characters are appealing and funny, "Aliens" doesn't have a mechanical feel that drags down most video-game movies. show more

    Aliens in the Attic is conveyor-belt family product, an action/adventure/sci-fi/comedy made from the bland corporate DNA of Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel. It appears designed for families who never leave the mall. show more
