I’d never heard of the Bruce Coville’s book series until this movie crossed my path. And I was only interested in seeing it because William Shatner voices one of the aliens. Now I’m glad I have been introduced to the Aliens Ate My Homework universe.
Aliens Ate My Homework is a delightful family movie that my almost-five-year-old loves. The movies low budget shows, but it over-delivers in the adorable adventure department. Now available on DVD and digital. Setup a family movie night with your younger kids and you won’t be disappointed. You can take a look at the trailer and synopsis below.
Based on Bruce Coville’s best-selling book series, this suspenseful family comedy follows the adventures of sixth-grader Rod Allbright and the extraterrestrial lawmen known as the Galactic Patrol. When a tiny spaceship flies through his window and lands on his science project, Rod and his cousin Elspeth meet a group of friendly aliens, including Phil, a talking plant (voiced by William Shatner). The earthlings quickly join the aliens’ adventurous mission to help defeat an evil alien criminal. After discovering the evil alien is disguised as a human – someone he knows all too well – Rod and Elspeth race to save the world from total planetary disaster.
