Okay for a family movie
1 January 2000 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

Even though half the movie was spent looking up Joseph Mazzello's nose (or his face) I still had a little bit of fun. The story wasn't really anything you haven't seen before, its kind of like a low bugget, low scale version of Independence Day, Mac and Me, and E.T put together. See it if you want, but don't expected much, unless you are around 6 to 13.

My rating: 7
