The Evening Standard

Derek Malcolm

The aliens look like cast-offs from a bad Spielberg film and the whole family are boring examples of Hollywood’s ordinary Americans.

Allan Hunter

The level of silliness might appeal to eight year-olds but the rest of us can leave them to it.

The Independent

Anthony Quinn

A pleasant, inconsequential movie about resourceful kids fighting off an alien invasion in suburban Michigan.

Time Out

Tom Huddleston

There’s not a great deal to recommend: a few decent one-liners, some inventive anti-gravity slapstick and a brief but enjoyably bonkers remote-controlled kung-fu battle between one of the kids and Tom’s brain-zapped granny. But such fleeting charms are largely outweighed by an unexceptional script, a brace of shabby performances (from both kids and adults) and some dismal CG effects...

Cue some uninspired but reasonably entertaining mayhem.

Older people, by which I mean everyone from 11 upwards, may notice that the movie runs out of ideas within 20 minutes.

Alistair Harkness

IT'S the final week of the school holidays and, accordingly, the dregs of summer are truly upon us in the form of Aliens in the Attic, a cheap and charmless kiddie-orientated sci-fi adventure film.

A last-resort movie for the rainiest August day imaginable.

Wrinkly digitised munchkins play witless havoc in a family’s August vacation home. It is very winsome and very long.
