We just watched a delightful move called Home. It’s a Dreamworks Animation film on Netflix and sure it’s a “kid’s” film but my 17 year old and I loved it. It kind of reminded me of shows like the Flintstones where the humour can be appreciated by kids and adults.
With the voice talents of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin, Jennifer Lopez and Nick Fletcher how could it not be awesome?
In brief, it’s about a misfit alien named ‘Oh’ whose species conquers Earth, befriends an adventurous teen girl named ‘Tip’ and together they save the world. I also love how this show has a strong female lead. Both main characters are determined and confident about themselves.
It’s hilarious. It has repeatable lines like “Can I come into the out now,” “Parties are so much more fun when other people show up,” “I do not fit in I fit out,” and ice cream is defined as “frozen sweetened bovine secretion”.
Many issues are touched upon including being different, not having friends, making the best of a situation,persevering, being alone, loving yourself, and being with people who accept you as you are.
After the movie the adventure continues with the animated series as well. Exclusive to Netflix, Season 1 is available now!
We both really enjoyed this and I bet you will too!
