Escape To Planet Earth in Theaters February 15th + Giveaway


My family was invited to get a sneak peek of the new movie "Escape From Planet Earth" in 3D starring an all star cast including Brendan Fraser and Jessica Alba. As soon as I got the invitation, I had the kids watch the Escape From Planet Earth trailer and we all laughed hysterically.


Here's a little synopsis that was provided to me:


The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population.  A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA.  When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission.  But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-averse Gary to do the real rescuing.  As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure-hungry son Kip (Jonathan Morgan Heit). 

What the kids thought:
The muffin tin kids loved this movie. I kept looking over at them laughing and smiling through the whole thing. Afterwards they kept chatting about the funny parts and their favorite moments like when Gary gets a brain freeze after drinking the Slurpee. Their favorite character was Doc the alien mouse. They also wanted to download the Escape To Planet Earth movie app right away.

 My thoughts: Rated PG, this is a great movie for kids 5 and up. It was funny, engaging and the music was fun for both kids and parents. I loved the overarching message of courage, doing what's right, and the importance of family. Several times during the movie, Gary chooses doing what's right over doing what's easy and sacrifices himself for the good of his brother and alienkind. Two thumbs way up!

  18. Hmmm...I am torn between the yummy popcorn at the theatre and chocolate. Usually if I end up getting chocolate, I really am envious of the smell lingering around me and the crunching from the seats behind me. So, I think I have learned my lesson and get popcorn at the movies. Thanks!
