Consensus: Inoffensive and kid-friendly this mundane family comedy is light on imagination.

Time Out

Fleeting charms are largely outweighed by an unexceptional script, a brace of shabby performances (from both kids and adults) and some dismal CG effects.

It appears designed for families who never leave the mall.

The whole enterprise is frustratingly 'blah' - weak acting, flat storytelling, lifeless direction, murky cinematography.

Jenkins is a bit too McDreamy to play the geeky underdog, and adult viewers will be nostalgic for the chubby, bucktoothed and truly dorky cast of The Goonies.

A forgettable bit of fluff that will zip out of your orbit as soon as the credits roll.

Cute protagonists, sensible morals and refreshing lack of complexity make Aliens in the Attic a bit of guilty pleasure.

Remarkably unremarkable; a lively war of the worlds diversion with plenty of spunky special effects, gratuitous slapstick, and Ashley Tisdale parading around in a bikini for all the dads out there.

They came from upstairs. Pretty sucky. This is for kids only, any adult would be abundantly bored. The movie really makes no sense, the animation is really… More

A simple, easy to watch film with some good comedy moments that will enthral children, but nothing for the adult viewer.
