Kids, tweens and teens alike will LOVE Aliens Ate My Homework. Thanks to Universal Home Entertainment for sending for review, however all opinions expressed are my own. The boys spent the afternoon watching the film and I have also ordered the “Galactic Patrol” book series. Are you children lovers of science fiction? They will love this movie. It’s fun and full of adventure and is perfect for ages 6 and up.
The Aliens were hiliarious and introducing the boys to the amazing William Shatner? Priceless! We’ve had great conversations about Mr. Shatner’s work and will be adding some of his work to our afternoon excitement.
The intergalactic adventure Aliens Ate My Homework arrives on DVD, Digital, and On Demand March 6th, 2018! The film adaption of the first book from the popular Rod Allbright and the Galactic Patrol series by Bruce Coville follows a pair of middle schoolers racing to save the world from destruction after extraterrestrials invade Earth.
