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.

Mostly this is one is for the kids. Some quick-witted humour aside there's little new for parents to enjoy, but the offspring will enjoy the snappy pacing, colourful animation and wacky ideas.

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.

Home takes an actual science-fiction story, admittedly toned down and geared towards the younger set, and grinds it up and blends it down into another homogenized family product.

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 ...

Home is more or less premised on refuting this cruel binary, encouraging kids to rethink conventions or family and otherness, fearfulness and he security of "home".

People always talk about the great Disney or Pixar films that come out every year, and if another animated film comes along that doesn't live up to those… More

Home is a humourous animation that had me laughing like a drain fro the very beginning.

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
