Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) PG - 3 Stars

This is actually a very cute movie and I am sure if you have children, they may rate it much higher. The animation is very good and I especially like they way Susan's eyes are just off kilter making her her a natural looking beauty.

Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon), is about to get married when she is hit by a meteor, knocking her out. When she comes to, she's grown to a size of 49 feet 11 inches tall. The military gets wind of the event and whisks her away for observation. She's named Ginormica and put in a secret military compound with other monster like creatures. It's there she meets B.O.B the squishy thing, The Missing Link fish monster Insectosaurous, and Dr. Cockroach Ph.D. . But when an alien robot lands on earth stopping military in it's tracks, the President is persuaded by General W.R. Monger to enlist the help of this monster team to fight off the alien and save the planet.
