Home - Review and Trailer

Four Thumbs up (from myself and daughter, Rosa) for the adorable new movie "HOME".  We had the opportunity to see the movie this past weekend as part of a media preview event courtesy of Dreamworks Animation.  

The alien race Boov decide to take over the planet Earth in attempt to run away from their enemies {after all running away is what the Boov do}. Oh, (voiced by Jim Parsons) a loveable misfit finds himself on the run from his own people, and forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip (voiced by Rihanna) who is on a quest to reunite with "My Mom". Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME.

Rosa (age 5.5) and I both enjoyed the movie a lot.  I loved the way Jim Parsons voice the character of Oh.  It was a perfect match.  The dialog is witty, the story line is moving, and (maybe it is pregnancy hormones) I cried and laughed, a lot.  

The music was great too.  (It's Rihanna, hello!) If you are interested you can get the Home Original Motion Picture SoundTrack on (affiliate link).  I highly recommend this movie for a great date with your children.  Just make sure they are sitting next to you, cause I guarantee you are going to want to reach over and give them at least one hug during the movie.
