Truly awful kid-flick about a little girl who must help her younger brother after he transforms into a insect by a alien posing as a baby-sitter. Horrible movie won't even make kids laugh, but is still fun to watch, only because of how many moments of unintentional hilarity there are, and how poor the production values and how terrible acting the is.

A Very funny film for kids!

This is an excellent family film that was made specifically to be funny to children 10 or under. And it works. The the exaggerated characters and dialogue, the silly situations, sight gags and the adults stereotyped from a child's perspective, are all elements that will make kids howl. I laughed all the way through, but then I never grew up anyway. This is one that kids, and the truly young at heart will really love. It even has a nice, family message about caring and getting along. And don't worry about the alien vocabulary. It will wear off eventually. See it with someone young.

My kids loved it!

'My kids thought this movie was hilarious. They are seven and five. I watched it with them and I have seen so much worse. Hey, I didn't even run screaming from the room. I will even tape it for them. I have seen movies for adults that were waaay wworse than this. This is a kids only movie. Kids under the age of 10 will find it funny and amusing. My son says 10 hands up and my daughter says it was great. Your kids will walk away with interesting alien words that you will hear over and over. But it is all fun.'

Here's a feast for maggots!

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This has got to be one of the most mind numbing and tediously unfunny films of all time and in my view is an insult to the intelligence of a child. How any child in 2001 would find this horrid film funny is beyond my comprehension.

It is all about a young girl named Krista and her irritating brother Tyler, both of whom are constantly at loggerheads. Whilst being watched by an extraterrestrial nanny named Mrs. Picklenickle, Krista says that she wishes her brother would turn into an insect, a wish which is duly granted.

Feeling remorseful, Krista makes various attempts to get her brother transformed back into a human form, whilst all the time trying to avoid another alien named Yendor, who is setting out to abduct Tyler. That's about it.

The plot is inane, the script is badly constructed and the cast, who include Briana Shipley, Steve Anderson, Andrew Fugate and Gabrielle Woods among many others, cannot act to save their lives. Shame on the film's creators for inflicting this embarrassing tripe onto poor, defenceless, innocent children.

Avoid at all costs!
