My thoughts about the movie: My grandson and I watched this movie and thought it was funny and well put together.  We liked how the aliens were small and the best part was when the aliens ate his homework now that was funny because it was no longer the old saying my dog ate my homework. This movie is a must see you will truly enjoy watching it.
