ET meets Goonies

comes across as a fun movie for kids. It's light-hearted (despite the scary aliens), humorous, and has decent special effects. Unlike a lot of kids films today, there are really no attempts at hidden crude humor and I can't think of anything that should give parents cause for concern. In fact, I can tell it's aimed for a fairly young audience - I had never heard of Ashley Tisdale before, and didn't think she was anything particularly special based on this movie. I think adults can enjoy it as well (as I did), but it won't have quite the wide audience of something like the PIXAR films.

The plot was a bit cliche - think E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial meets The Goonies. A bunch of kids, generally social outcasts in their own ways (nerds, video game addicts, etc), find the vanguard of an alien invasion. One of them is friendly, leading to almost E.T.-like scenes between Ashley Boettcher (Hannah) and Snuggy the alien. The others are downright devious and wretched, comparable to the goons in Goonies.

I have to say, watching Doris Roberts jump-kick Bethany's creepy boyfriend was easily the highlight of the movie. For kids, this would be 5 stars, but overall it's probably closer to 4 stars.
