Consensus: Colorful, silly, and utterly benign, Home is a passable diversion, but there's no shortage of superior animated alternatives.

Christy Lemire

Heartwarming and harmless? Sure, why not. But it's also numbing in its simplicity and often rather annoying.

A surprisingly moving tale of friendship and family, dressed up as an adorably frivolous sci-fi comedy.

Home isn't a bad movie at all; it just lacks that intangible "it" factor found in the most successful animated films.

The combination of Home's layered message, fun score, and clever comedy make it a colorful choice for moviegoers of any age.

Maybe it's because kids sometimes feel like aliens in a grown-up world, but from E.T. and Elliott to Lilo and Stitch, pairing a child with a creature from outer space can prove to be a winning combination.

What might be mildly amusing for one minute doesn't become 94 times funnier just because you pad it out to 94 minutes.

Anyone over 10 will see the plot twists a mile away. Kids will probably enjoy the goofy Boovs, the rainbows of colors and the music. Call me a traditionalist, but I still say the world was a better place before those darn Boovs invaded.

A big, fat happy meal of a movie ...

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Despite nifty re-packaging of the animated-feature formula--seemingly daring premise; casually multicultural, international story that's seldom pandering; memorable hero--Home, for all its snappy colours and crackles of joy, never quite pops.

Adorable and a half! I thought Oh's broken English and out-of-context pop culture references would be annoying, but he is actually rather lovable in his… More

Home is one of Dreamworks Animation much more lazier projects, one that doesn't take any risks and feels like we've seen a thousand times. The story… More

Oh: Oh, no! My hands are in the air like I just do not care! The "cute factor" always plays a big role in animated features made for a family… More

Oh not so great. Formulaic, but fails in its story telling.
Film Crazy
Home is a humourous animation that had me laughing like a drain fro the very beginning.

Giving a familiar voice to a silly extraterrestrial adventure, Home might be where the heart is but wit is another matter entirely. This is not to say that… More
