A spaceship shaped like a human lands face first on Liberty Island. Its crew (of tiny, intelligent, and unemotional beings) is looking for an orb sent from its planet to extract the oceans' salt, which will ruin Earth. The orb is in the possession of Josh, the fifth-grade son of a single mom whose car strikes the ambulatory alien spaceship and cripples its power supply. The crew has 48 hours to recover the orb, throw it in the Atlantic, and leave Earth. Over the course of two days, the ship's crew experiences chaos and emotion in New York. Do Earth's giants - Josh and his mom - have anything to teach these brainy aliens? Meanwhile, mutiny is afoot and the cops are closing in.Written by

Department of Defense worker:
Dude, dude...no, I was like..."Yes, we *do* have nuclear missiles", and he was all like "No, you don't", and I was all like "Yes, we do." "Whatever." And I was like "Well, what part of 'whatever' do you not get?"

Another great kids film by Eddie Murphy! :D A funny film which has an interesting plot and is great for people of all ages My little sister loved it and laughed pretty much all the way through.
I don't know how people can write bad reviews on such a great film! It may not be the most exciting film in the world but hey! it's better then most. Has some great acting by most of the cast including Elizabeth Banks and Eddie Murphy.
The film had a great ending and people shouldn't listen to the negative feedback :)
