Fun!! Loved the "brief history of the Dark Planet" and other wry observations about humans. Good clean humor and lots of action!

Really good family movie!

When Scorch Supernova, superhero idol of the planet Baabs, is lost after responding to an alien distress signal from the mysterious “Dark Planet” (three guesses…) it’s up to his nerdy mission control brother Gary to set aside their longstanding sibling rivalry and rescue the big lummox. But things don’t go exactly as planned for Scorch and a host of other hapless aliens are being held captive by a mad general who wants to use their advanced technology in order to develop an ultimate doomsday device…as well as everything else from touchscreen technology to social networking. Landing on Earth, Gary must use his formidable brain to not only free the aliens but prevent the paranoid army hawk from destroying every one of their home planets out of sheer spite. Gee, I wonder who will win? Rarely have so many cool celebrity voices been wasted as in this derivative mess of underdog clichés and stale E.T. jokes. With the exception of a few colourful scenes the visuals are mostly an uninspired mix of old View Master reels and Tomorrow Land miniatures populated by the usual assortment of marketable beasties and an insipid score of galactic muzak. The original songs suck too.

My 5 and 8 year old boys LOVE this movie. They quote it all the time and love the funny little rat. It has a lot of action and they request it over and over again (I really should just buy it)...seriously I'm surprised this movie didn't do better in theaters!

I was laughing so hard during this movie. But the Grays totally ripped off the Force. They ain't no Jedi.

Now I know where we get all of our technology from. ;-)

I only found one moment of funny in it. Mostly long, drawn out, with more dialogue than really needed.
