Home : Movie Review


When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own. Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME – Dreamworks Animations



I have done a handful of cartoon reviews and really seem sinister as most animation have the same funny scoops. So when home was released for review, I put it aside and went on with more adult reviews. During a very busy night, I decided to put the cartoon in so I can work in my home office. 5mins into the movie and my daughter was laughing and screaming, I went and joined her and I must confess that this is the best movie ever from DreamWorks.

The Animation was scripted in such a fascinating way that it entertains all ages, I mean all ages. I have watched the cartoon with my daughter more than 5 times and every time I need to get her busy, she wants Boov. Oooh (Jim Parsons) is a character in the movie that has exceptional qualities from the general Boov alien clan. The general Boov alien clan are common aliens with self-motivation or concept to life except through the leadership and rules of captain smek (Steve Martin) with his shusher sticker. In their most exceptional gift, which is running away, they chose earth as a destination to evade the monster alien trying to destroy the boovs. In their taking over the planet earth quest, OOh makes a mistake that turns him to a fugitive which ends him up at the mercy of ‘Tip’ Tucci (Rihanna) who is also trying to avoid the Boov capturing her. On this quest they booth learn the values of friendship and family. Home was released in South African Cinemas in April and are off the screens but the DVD are out at top CNA STORES as well as online demand streaming sites.
