I wouldn't watch it a second time.
I wasn't particularly impressed with the much-exhausted idea of aliens taking over our planet. The thrill factor of this movie wasn't any good either. Not to mention, the fact that things didn't add up greatly hurt this movie. In order to combat the problem of highly intelligent and hostile beings from entering their home I would think one would have to go through a lot more trouble than to club it a couple of times and throw a glass of water in its face. I did, however, enjoy the acting of both the adults and the children in this movie. The emotional intimacy of the family and their crippling past made me tear up more than once. The light humor also made it that much more enjoyable. I think it would have been best if Shyamalan had just taken the whole faith issue and ran with that instead. As a psychology enthusiast I would have been very interested. I can't stress how much of a distraction the "aliens" are to the true meaning behind this movie! It could have been much more successful and memorable, but instead it's shoved into the "what if aliens exist?" category along with all the others. Just for having aliens in it! Even the physical appearance and behavior of the aliens were cliché. In the beginning the movie is very intriguing but I feel as if they didn't know how to continue in that direction or they'd think a much more complex plot would take too much time and effort but in the end it just hopelessly collapsed. I was so disappointed by the finale and it just left me wanting more.
