happy to settle down to a movie where I didn't have to think about plots. I could just enjoy the show. Planet 51 was one such movie.
When Earth astronaut Capt. Chuck Baker (Dwayne Johnson) arrives on Planet 51 -- a world reminiscent of American suburbia circa 1950 -- he tries to avoid capture, recover his spaceship and make it home safely, all with the help of an empathetic little green being. Joe Stillman (Shrek) writes and Jorge Blanco directs this animated thrill ride that also features the vocal talents of Jessica Biel and Gary Oldman
The animation in this movie was pretty good. I enjoyed it, though my family didn't care for the unrealistic-ness to it. I chalk it up to all being on an alien planet after all.
The story line is cute, funny, and nicely thought out. It's a great family movie! Though, that's all there really is to say about it. There isn't anything spectacular, besides it being another movie to rival Shrek's animation.
So, if you're into a funny, simply family movie, here's the one for you.
