Planet 51

To be perfectly honest, animated movies that are not made by Disney or PIXAR really worry me. I mean, none of the ones I have seen, with the exception of Shrek 1 & 2 (NOT including Shrek the Third) and Mary and Max, have been particularly good. Planet 51 (2009) is no exception. Just shows you have to be the pros to make the best children's entertainment.
An American astronaut Captain Charles 'Chuck' Baker (voiced by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson) lands on a weird planet, thinking he is the first person to discover it. But to his surprise, there is life on this planet--green alien-looking species who think the human is the alien in that situation. The aliens fear that the humans will take over their livelihood, but found out they aren't such a threat after all.
Well, I don't know why, but this film was a combination of boring cliches and offensive crude jokes. Not usually the recipe to create a good kids film. I'm not sure what the age group was here; sometimes it felt like a silly little comedy for teenagers, then it felt like it was for the little toddlers, and then it just got confused and started throwing offensive and poxy jokes all over the place hoping to please the viewers. To be honest, some kids might like it, but this is probably one of those movies an adult should watch while they are under the influence of something strong. In other words, you don't need to watch it.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
