More of a Children's movie than a Family movie
3 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After a very full day, my daughter and I stumbled across a movie on the family channel. Honestly being close to midnight, I may not have been the most receptive to a production like this as I may have been during a Sunday afternoon. For me a family movie is one where we can all sit and enjoy a story-line regardless of age. Little ones are engaged and adults are tossed occasional thoughts that potentially too mature (but harmless) for younger viewers. "Sally Marshall Is Not an Alien" is not such a movie.

My teenager chose for us to slug through this one, and as another reviewer commented it is better after struggling through the first 30-40 minutes. It was interesting than even my daughter was frustrated by the foolishness of the young characters in this story. This could be a pleasant viewing time for an 8-11 years old, but older than that you would be more entertained doing the dishes (and more productive). Why this was presented late at night was confusing -- maybe the programmer had nothing else available.
