‘Home’ Review: Jim Parsons & Rihanna Team For Fun Frenetic Family Ride

27 March 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Move over, E.T.: There’s a new lovable alien on Earth and ironically he’s in a movie called Home. This new DreamWorks Animation confection is the company’s only planned release this year, and as I say in my video review above it is out-of-this-world fun for the whole family. The movie skews very, very young, but adults should be happy to go along for the ride on this road trip, though, because of the zippy dialogue in Tom J.

Film Review: ‘Home’

7 March 2015 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hey “Home,” E.T. called — he wants his huggable-alien concept back. Introduced in the film’s opening seconds, when he bumps that little boy with the fishing rod from the DreamWorks Animation logo, over-eager alien invader Oh represents Jeffrey Katzenberg’s best hope at harnessing some of his old pal Steven Spielberg’s intergalactic buddy-movie mojo. Unimaginative and downright predictable by grownup standards, but bursting with elements sure to appeal to younger auds — including cutesy character design, quotable alien catchphrases and solid musical/vocal contributions from Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, who add a dose of diversity to the human cast — Dwa’s lone 2015 feature release should manage to squeak past the $100 million mark during a relatively competition-free spring, while reinforcing the studio’s recent standing as the Pepsi of the animation world: It’s potable, but a distant second to the real thing.
