What's in your attic?

Connor likes to tell me that there is monkeys in our attic, but after watching this movie he may just reconsider. Aliens in the Attic is a fun addition to your movie collection for the holiday break! Kinda goofy, very kid oriented, but lots of fun.

The whole idea behind the movie is a family goes on vacation to a lake house, a story we know so well in this family at least. Once they get there they find out that there are some very unexpected guests hanging out in the attic. A group of kinda silly, short, dense little aliens have invaded the attic and take over the brains of the people they conquer reducing them to walking remote controlled people. The whole skit with the grandmother being used as a remote control is absolutely hilarious!

We saw the movie on bluray and let me tell you for a movie that is really marketed more towards kids than adults the video quality is really awesome. The details on the aliens are really impressive and though I'm usually not a huge fan of mixing animation and live action it comes off really clean and totally distracting. There are some huge kids stars in the movie and the whole thing is really done quite well. Though this movie got pretty bad ratings in the theaters I'm really not sure why if its not only for the fact that it really is more of a kids movie than a family/adult movie for the sheer goofyness factor. However if you have younger kids in the house or even older kids who are of the whole "High School Musical fanclub" they will absolutely love it. Nothing about it is scary, and everything in it is totally kid safe for even the youngest viewers.

The bluray title offers quite a few extras to enjoy including a gag reel which will leave you laughing and a video game that is absolutely hilarious. That grandma I was talking about returns in her own little mini video game included on the disc. You can also check out the alternate endings. All of which are included in the standard edition as well.

It's certainly a great addition to the stocking stuffer collection for the holidays or a good pick to keep the kids entertained while the adults spend some quality time over the holidays. Connor certainly approves. You can pick up your own copy of Aliens in the Attic right now on Amazon!

There are a lot of good actors in this film: Kevin Nealon, Tim Meadows, Doris Roberts. My favorite character has to be Nana Rose, played by Doris Roberts. I watched a clip about the filming of her fight scene and it was very entertaining.
