Far from out of this world, directors Christoph and Wolfgang Launstein and Sean McCormack keep things mildly diverting for little ones, but bland for anyone old enough to make their own bed. When Nag, Wabo and Mog, a trio of intergalactic shape-shifting beings, crash their spacecraft into his house, 11-year-old Luis lends his new friends a hand, and they in turn help him deal with his overbearing dad.

Kids will enjoy it. Adults will be bored to tears.

Best thing about it is its running time of less than 90 minutes.

Parents will have to be end-of-holidays desperate to take their little darlings to this punishingly uninspired animation.

While the characters and situations may be a little too predictable and farcical for sustained enjoyable supervised viewing, there's an overall feeling of fun that emanates from the just-right running time.

Though peppy and bright enough that it might amuse some kids should it show up on a screen in front of them somewhere, it offers no reason for their adult guardians to actually take them someplace to watch it.
