User Reviews

22 March 2015 | by RamascreenSee all my reviews

Children will definitely like "Home" but I can't say the same about the parents and other adults watching it. The films lacks coherence, if you will, but hey, if it can get the kids smiling and laughing and having a good time, then who are we to heavily criticize it. We'd only judge it more if it didn't do what it was supposed to for kids and families.

Jim Parsons voices a lovable misfit alien named Oh, his fellow Boovians don't want to befriend him because Oh is odd and he wants to have a party when other Boovians would rather do what Boovians do best, running away, just like their leader Captain Smek (Steve Martin) who thinks highly of himself. Rihanna voices Tip whose mother Lucy (Jennifer Lopez) gets relocated with other humans to some other place when the Boov invades planet earth. Tip is determined to find and reunite with her mother. These two characters bump into each other and they form an unlikely friendship through a series of comic adventures. Oh learns what it means to be human and Tip comes to understand Oh's loneliness.

Adorable and upbeat are some of the words come to mind to describe HOME. Adorable because obviously Dreamworks Animation has created once again a series of characters, in these Boovians, that can work as huggable doll merchandises to sell to kids. Oh is so much fun to watch, when he hears a song, his body can't help but dance to the beat and the tunes, he wants to reject it but his body doesn't and that serves for a comical sequence. That also leads to upbeat, being that although this is not a movie musical, it's driven by Rihanna's much, in fact if I didn't know any better, I thought HOME was a huge celebration of Rihanna. If you are her fan, you've come to the right movie, I guarantee you that.

It's both Jim Parsons and Rihanna's first rodeo in the world of animated feature film, Parsons' Oh in particular is strikingly different from his Parsons' iconic alter ego, Sheldon Cooper in "The Big Bang Theory." Sheldon knows it all and he'll tell it to your face, whereas Oh only knows what he's been told by Captain Smek and other Boovians. Rihanna sounds too grown up to voice a little kid like Tip, I think Rihanna did all right, but she's got a long way to go, her timing and reactions are not quite there yet. HOME will teach our little young ones about friendship, family, never giving up, and befriending those who may be different from us Read more at Ramascreen.Com
