Kid Friendly Movies for the Winter Months Ahead - Part 1

The winter is coming and if you are like me, you are already preparing for those days of snow bound, frigid weather that will keep you and your family inside.

To be honest I love nothing better than to spend the cold days in front of the fireplace with my family knowing that we are all safe inside and watch a kid friendly movie. It reminds me of that wholesome time before responsibilities took over life. A time when I was a child and there was so much life to look forward to.

We never get to the movies so DVD's are really big in this house.

I recently was contacted by an AWESOME Public Relations connection and she mailed me an advance copy of Alien's In the Attic to watch for this review.
I didn't know much about Alien's In The Attic in fact the only thing I did know was that Ashley Tisdale was in it and I thought it was animated. I am here to say it is not animated.

Film Synopsis:
The Aliens vs. the Pearsons
They are home but they are not alone.
It's summer vacation, but the Pearson family kids are stuck at a boring lake house with their nerdy parents. That is until feisty, little, green aliens crash-land on the roof, with plans to conquer the house AND Earth! Using only their wits, courage and video game-playing skills, the youngsters must band together to defeat the aliens and save the world -- but the toughest part might be keeping the whole thing a secret from their parents! ALIENS IN THE ATTIC is the most fun you can have on this planet!

Fox will release Aliens in the Attic on DVD & Blu-ray this November 3rd. Featuring an all-star cast including Ashley Tisdale, Andy Richter, Kevin Nealon and Tim Meadows.

In a Nutshell:
Aliens in the Attic is a great movie for the entire family. The kids will love it and you won't be too bored. Really what more can you ask for in a movie. My daughter and I have watched it 3 times already. At first I thought the premise of aliens would be too scary for her especially since they are in the "attic" but she was totally fine with it. The only part I was uncomfortable with was how often Ashley Tisdale was in a bikini.  Although the premise is nonsensical I think the kids in the movie are fun enough, cool enough and spunky enough to keep your child's interest. My personal favorite moment is when the boyfriend of Ashley ends up under mind control of the Alien's. The actor went to the Jim Carey school of acting and can go spineless in two seconds flat. We laugh out loud when he is on the screen.

I give this movie a 3 out of 5. The kids will love it and you will be able to see through it.
