Storyline

Extraterrestrials invade Earth and a pair of middle schoolers hold the fate of the world in their hands in Aliens Ate My Homework, a delightfully comical intergalactic adventure from Universal 1440 and Lay-Carnagey Entertainment. Aliens Ate My Homework is based on the first book in the wildly successful Rod Allbright and the Galactic Patrol series. Written by internationally renowned author Bruce Coville, the four-part saga has sold over 17 million books worldwide and has been translated into 16 languages. When a tiny intergalactic starship crashes into the bedroom of 12-year-old Rod Allbright (Jayden Greig), it's the start of the adventure of a lifetime for him and his cousin Elspeth (Lauren McNamara). Enlisted by the extraterrestrial Galactic Patrol, a group of out-of-this-world lawmen, Rod and Elspeth must race to save the world from Total Planetary Disaster. The film features the voice of William Shatner ("Star Trek") as the intrepid intergalactic explorer known as Phil the Plant. Written by anonymous

A mediocre adaptation
6 January 2019 | by Stovepipe99See all my reviews

I loved the book Aliens Ate My Homework when I was in elementary school. I haven't read it in 20 years, so I can't really comment on how good the book would be to adult eyes.

Still, this film condenses and alters the plot to the point where I wasn't all that impressed. I did really like the look of the aliens, and the kids playing the younger siblings were fun and cute and a nice break from the usual sarcastic, precocious kids you see in most movies/shows.

But this film is also full of groan-worthy, and borderline inappropriate moments, ranging from the litany of horrible plant puns (from the plant alien) to a jaw-dropping shot where the main character holds a paper mache volcano at his crotch while it shoots out white foam.

Also, call me crazy, but this movie was full of references to the main character being fat and yet I felt like the actor looked like he was a healthy weight. And yet he is called "pudge-boy" and his cousin makes jokes about his diet not working out. It was weird seeing a child at a normal weight being fat-shamed. If they wanted this to be a part of the pot, then they should have found an actor who was actually overweight.

I was hoping that this would be a fun throwback to a childhood favorite, but ultimately it was pretty disappointing. Though I did realize a little ways through the film that the person playing the principal was Bruce Coville himself! If you really liked the book as a kid, maybe check it out. Otherwise, skip it. Would I show this film to a child? Probably not. Both because of the "humor" and because it's simply not that good.
