'Escape From Planet Earth' (Feb. 15)

Short Story:
Sibling rivalry. It's a universal concept -- quite literally, since alien astronaut Scorch Supernova (voiced by Brendan Fraser) needs his brother's help after accidentally landing on Earth and getting thrown in jail. Since Scorch is only famous on his home planet thanks to brother Gary (Rob Corddry), Scorch is forced to swallow his pride and ask for some family support to get home.

What They're Saying:
"Thanks to The Weinstein Company's insistence on low-rent animation, this might please young kids but torment discerning parents." -- The Phoenix

Good for Kids?
Definitely! Although Common Sense Media warns for "some nail-biting action sequences," Escape from Planet Earth is wholly family-friendly.
