    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    The picture has enough entertainment value to tickle its target audience and even offers a few chuckles for accompanying adults. A strong cast and bright -- if uninspired — animation help to offset a thin story. show more

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

    Colorful as the 3-D aliens-among-us comedy is to look at, though, Corddry is handed a role that’s beige as can be, and so are his castmates. show more

    Unlike say, “Doogal” or “Hoodwinked 2,” at least you won’t want to gouge your eyes out after this one. show more

    The late Douglas Adams summed up Earth as “mostly harmless,” a description that also applies to this eminently tolerable animated time-filler. show more

    Austin Chronicle

    This movie is a mess: It keeps doubling back on itself – a twisting pretzel of a plot that doesn’t really make sense. show more

    Not recommended for anyone but the hardiest of animation completists, this one is a definite skip. There’s nothing to note, nothing to grasp, nothing in which to find mirth. You could Escape from Planet Earth, but you’re better off just ignoring it. show more

    Feel-good but not cloying, zippy but not frenetic, and refreshingly free of snark, the default setting for a lot of kids' fare these days, the feature takes a pleasingly retro-futuristic stance on matters of décor and attitude. show more

    Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

    Escape From Planet Earth makes a tolerable diversion for a winter’s day or evening, just not a memorable one. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    A lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle. show more

    Village Voice

    Escape From Planet Earth makes a compelling case for our disposable culture to finally get wiped out by malevolent aliens. show more
