Aliens in the Attic is in the tradition of the best and worst of lighthearted summer movies aimed at young boys. It has physical slapstick comedy; almost unending sibling rivalry that ends only to save the family and the world; wacky, out of touch parents, unrespectable policeman and other adults, who are more alien than the little aliens that are attempting to invade Earth. I had mindless fun with this movie, maybe I found my new level of interest: It is suggested for ages 7 and up. So far what I listed are the clichés of these kind of movies, that’s why I said it has the worst of them, not much originality. On the other hand it takes talent to use existing ideas and repackage them for a new, entertaining show. I was entertained, particularly the battles between the kids (siblings ad cousins) and the invading aliens (classic little green figures with big teeth) as they protect their vacation home.
