Home is a cute and cuddly entertaining ride!
A delightful movie buffed up real good by Jim Parson’s voice. You see one of the most adorable aliens ‘Oh’ come alive through outstanding CGI. Not only that but you also see him change colours as per his ephemeral mood swings. Oh speaks with broken phrases, bizarre words and incorrect tenses but not for a second does he stop being adorable. Jim’s voice just fits in the right grooves to impart the alien, a goofy yet an endearing sweetness.
The movie is all Rihanna if you give the flick a close scrutiny. She has needle dropped her own songs in the flick to strike the right vibes along with giving her voice to a crucial character named Tip. Steve Martin sounds just as great as Captain Smek. The movie is packed with adorable aliens, cute acts, good laughs, plushy clumsiness and morality messages.
The story however is really vapid and predictable. Jokes seem to be intended and aren’t properly placed. The theme on which the movie runs is also quite clichéd. Being primarily a kid’s movie, nothing dark covers the plot. All objects in the story are harmless. Sometimes the humour turns too cheesy and immature. But hey! If the child sitting next to me is laughing like crazy, who’s complaining?
Home is basically a movie for kids, and for you, provided the kid in you is still alive!
