Dreamworks Home review – One for the kids, and RiRi fans. 

 

 Hi guys! So yesterday I took the kids to the cinema to see Dreamworks latest offering ‘Home’. 

Home is based on the book by Adam Rex The True Meaning of Smekday, with the voices of the main characters being provided by Rihanna, and Jim Parsons, better known as ‘the Big Bang theory’s’ Sheldon Cooper. So I was expecting some sas, and plenty of laughs. I wasn’t left disappointed, Home is funny, features great music (thanks to Rihanna), and was surprisingly heartwarming, with a story that focuses on making friendships and understanding and learning from those that are a bit different from us.  

‘Oh’ , played by Parsons is a misunderstood, clumsy Alien exhiled from his race the Boov, after having one to many mishaps. 

The Boov are a nomadic race, who whilst on the run from their Alien enemies, have decided to make Earth their new home. Not without consiquence though as the Boov relocate the entire human race to Australia. This is all except for ‘Tip’ Tucci, who gets separated from her mum, and left behind. 

Whilst ‘Oh’ is on the run, he and ‘Tip’ meet.  What ensues is an adventurous trip to reunite Tip with her mum, and a race to stop the Invasion of Earth from the Boov’s destructive enemy. 

Parsons brings ‘Oh’ to life in such a funny endearing manor, whilst Rianna provides plenty of sas to her role as ‘Tip’. As you watch their unlikely friendship develop this will leave you feeling all warm and mushy inside. From an adult perspective If that’s not your cup of tea, then this film is not for you, as it focuses heavily on friendship and understanding. Kids though will love the slapstick humour, music and feel good theme. Fortunately I love a bit of Mush so I was a happy customer. 

I may also find myself downloading the soundtrack from iTunes, as I’ve had a quick peek and it really is great. It features original music from Riannha, J-lo and more. 

Have you seen ‘Home’? Did you love it or hate it?

Bye for now, Katy 🙂
