Home – Five Reasons You’ll Love It

Worlds collide when a cowardly alien race called the Boov take over the earth in an attempt to escape their arch nemesis. The trouble starts when a misfit Boov named Oh accidentally sends their location to their enemy and is forced to flee. After running away, he suddenly finds himself in the company of a human called 'Tip', and together this unlikely pair must save the world..

We caught an early screening and have put together five reasons why we think you’ll love it.

 

Rihanna makes her animation debut like a boss...

And she brings her usual sass to her role as Tip, the adventurous human who was abandoned with her cat Pig after the Boov captured her mother. Along with the sass she also brings a brilliant soundtrack with some Rihanna classics as well as her new track 'Towards The Sun’. Everyone will want to have their arms “in the air like they just do not care…"

 

Jim Parsons is on great form as Oh...

We know him best as Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory and from that he brings to Oh the same nerdy charm and social awkwardness to give us an alien who just wants to fit in and make friends. As always, he's part opf some great gags including a hilarious scene where he tries one of the complimentary lavatory mints...

 

The Boov are really quite cute..

Essentially just blobs with multiple legs somehow with their big eyes, curly ear things and their mood ring like colour changes you can’t help but love them.  They also have a strange love of bubbles...

 

It's a surprisingly poignant film...

It may be a fun animation aimed for children but it's a very poignant film too. It's all fun and games on Oh and Tip’s adventures but as they are in search of Tip’s mum in Australia there are some moments where you might feel a bit teary... 

 

It’s got a good old message...

It might not be an original message but it still always rings true. Family and friends are important…and so is a slushy fuelled flying car!

 

Home is released into UK cinemas today (Friday 20th March).
