Forgettable music video
6 June 2015 | by myrkr-894-613060See all my reviews

As a fan of animated films and Jim Parsons, Home felt like something I would enjoy. When the first Rihanna song started playing, I grew skeptical. When the next one started, I got tired of it. There's actually 5 Rihanna songs in the film. 5. Five. Along with Rihanna playing one of the lead roles. And I should mention that her character is not singing these songs. She's just listening and dancing to Rihanna. Sorry, but nope. Home started feeling like a commercial for some Rihanna album or a very long music video. I don't think I will remember this film, but if I do it would be for exactly that, and I would forget the story.

However, if you're not like me and don't care about such things, the movie itself is pretty cute.
