QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Sci-Fi Comedy: After he inadvertently sends out a message that might alert his species' enemy to their whereabouts now on Earth, an extraterrestrial goes on the run with a human teen who's searching for her mother.
PLOT:
As noted by Oh (voice of JIM PARSONS), his species is quite good at running away, and they've now left their last planet to repopulate Earth. That's in hopes of avoiding detection by their mortal enemy, the Gorg, and after relocating all humans to just one spot on Earth, the Boov take over the planet. To celebrate, Oh sends traffic controller Kyle (voice of MATT JONES) an invite to his welcome party, unaware that he's sent it to everyone. To make matters worse, it's also now traveling away from the planet, likely to arrive in the inbox of the Gorg leader and thus alert him to the new home of the Boov.

As a result, the Boov leader, Captain Smek (voice of STEVE MARTIN), has the smartest Boov try to break Oh's email password and thus stop the message, while also ordering Kyle to find Oh just in case they fail. Little do they know that he's now on the run with Gratuity "Tip" Tucci (voice of RIHANNA), a teenager who accidentally wasn't relocated and has been living in hiding in her city. She's desperate to find her mom, Lucy (voice of JENNIFER LOPEZ), while Oh secretly wants to flee to Antarctica. The two end up forming an unlikely partnership, all while Capt. Smek and the rest of the Boov fear that the Gorg will soon be coming.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into computer-animated movies mixing sci-fi and comedy, they might show some interest (especially among younger kids).
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For mild action and some rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
