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
Aliens Ate My Homework is a story I read in the sixth grade (the same age as "Rod" in the movie), and I'm pleasantly surprised to see a movie adaptation twenty-something years later! The movie is fun, adorable, and made me a bit nostalgic for the days I'd get dropped off at the movies without my parents to see a kids adventure film like Explorers, The Wizard, Masters of the Universe, Flight of the Navigator, SpaceCamp, etc. It's got a little bit of magical realism where something extraordinary happens in your own backyard and while dealing with the real world of bullies, bad grades or struggling parents. And who didn't have a goofy friend totally obsessed with explosive edibles?! The kids they cast are so normal and believable (imdb shows that 2 actors have been in Oscar-nominated films already) and the aliens are both mysterious and funny. William Shatner, who plays an ALIEN, is full of wordplay, a total wink to the older "kids." Since it is based on a series of books, maybe we can look forward to more adventures with the Galactic Patrol.
