The Pearson kids use their wits, courage and video game-playing skills against some feisty, little green aliens who crash-land on the family's vacation home. But the toughest part for the kids will be keeping this whole thing from their parents!
I was expecting this to be really really bad. I avoided it at the cinemas because I thought 'dear god not another Ashley Tisdale film' (you can possibly guess I am not a huge fan of High School Musical), so it was almost a shock to find the film more than palatable, it actually had me laughing in a couple of places.
Of course Ashley was still kind of annoying, but her 'brother', played by Carter Jenkins was rather cute and I liked that all the children were related - either siblings or cousins - yet actually got along fairly well. There was nothing particularly profound about this film (I would have liked a couple fewer children and more layers to their characters), it was definitely fun enough to tide me over while babysitting the kids nextdoor.

Academy Award ® nominee Quvenzhan√ © Wallis stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mum Miss Hannigan. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.
