I personally enjoyed watching this movie more than my younger brother, and I even own it on DVD, yet I can see why most people did not bother watching it and it was not such a big hit. I watched it 2 years after it was released because it did look pretty lame, but I loved the animation and story.

San Francisco Chronicle
The movie as a whole isn't exactly ground-breaking, and some of the humor tanks. But it has enough action, laughs and candy-hued visuals to satisfy the target audience without plunging grown-ups into despair. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
Delivers a few pleasant surprises, including a smart story -- a reverse-E.T. riff that plops an American astronaut down in a world of just-like-us-only-green creatures -- and clever characters. Full Review

It's a missed opportunity. The premise is OK enough, even if it is like one of those old "Star Trek" episodes. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
A perky though not terribly imaginative feature aimed primarily at youngsters. Full Review
