3.0 out of 5 stars
Imperfect fun, 12 May 2003
Despite some weaknesses in the story such as an intelligent galaxy crossing aliens inability to penetrate a pantry door, the film is generally entertaining though far fewer spine tingles than The Sixth Sense.
The children do as well an acting job as the adults and the occassional humor, especially those tin foil helmets are great.
There is NO big twist ending here and only a fair pay off to the "swing" setup but in all worth renting and watching in the dark.
Get a pair of fake alien claws and give the one you're snuggling with a heart attack.
