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

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    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

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    The real problem with this Aliens encounter is that it's patently a Nick at Night midweek movie that inadvertently got greenlighted for a big-screen opening. show more

    A pointless but ultimately harmless family adventure that doesn't mentally assault the 12-and-over set. (Extra points for being 100 percent fart-joke-free). show more

    Los Angeles Times

    Perfectly calibrated for the pre-adolescent set, highlighting broad physical comedy and themes of kid empowerment and featuring one of the stars from "High School Musical." show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Performances are unremarkable but acceptable pretty much across the board, and the vocal talents -- particularly Thomas Haden Church as the belligerent Tazer and Josh Peck as the lovable Sparks -- are well cast. show more

    The New York Times

    Robert Hoffman as the boyfriend, who spends most of his time under the marionettelike control of either the aliens or the human children, provides the film's occasional funny moments. show more

    L.A. Weekly

    Cheap, shoddy, crass and depressing fun for the whole family -- by which I mean 8-year-old boys. show more

    Tasha Robinson The A.V. Club

    Like those mild old Disney comedies of the ’60s and ’70s, it seems perfectly content with being a harmless distraction. show more

    Aliens in the Attic is the worst movie that I have seen in years what in the world were they thinking when they decided to make this film? I do not know what was worst the acting, the script or everything about this film.
