Movie Details

Home

Based on the 2007 Adam Rex`s children`s book "The True Meaning Of Smekday", the film tells the story of a friendly alien race that invades Earth and uses it as a hideout from their mortal enemy. When one lowly alien accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl. The two become unlikely buddies and embark on a comical globe-trotting adventure to right his wrongs, in which our alien hero learns what it really means to be human.

Watch this if you liked: “Lilo & Stitch”, “MegaMind” and “Planet 51”

The Good, the Bad and the Alienated Alien:

• The film would be very well-received among kids due to its fun and wacky adventures.

• It is a fun movie to watch with great life lesson of hope, friendship, family and forgiveness that's almost like a new retelling of "Lilo & Stitch".

• An unexpected high quality voice performance from Rihanna and Jim Parsons who perfectly clicked with each other as they are able to wonderfully carry out the humour and emotion of the characters.


Trivia:

• Rihanna created the whole soundtrack for this film.
