Product Description

Once again we visit two tried and true plot devices: Stranger in a Strange Land and The Hero’s Journey. This colorful and humorous outing is directed by Tim Johnson (“Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas”) with a screenplay written by Tom Astle and Matt Ember (“Epic”) based on the novel by Adam Rex.

This animated PG movie from DreamWorks is entertaining; even the title sequence has a good laugh. Of course the adults find this story more predictable than the children; on the other hand adults are amused by many, many bits that go right over the youngsters’ heads (e.g., a reference to metric tools).
