Sweeter and more watchable than I thought it would be.

I kind of liked the aliens, but the love story was just too cheesy. Why not just take over dogs instead of people? Then everyone could be friends. Stupid aliens. If they had to be in charge being a dog or cat would been a much easier way to take over (at least in the USA).

Goose bumps arose when the inner voice talked on the big screen. Never again please. Some chemistry were missing between the beautiful talented Saoirse Ronan and the male leads.

I enjoyed the book a lot, so was looking forward to the film. As others have said, it did drag. It also failed to show any chemistry between the 3 leads and that was crucial to making it work.

I enjoyed this movie, and was really involved in the story line. Hubby thought it was an awful movie.

Interesting premise, great cast, but it unfortunately dragged on a bit longer than it needed to. I'd recommend this to my fellow nerds trying to get girls they're dating into science fiction, it was a useful bridge.

interesting concept, but it just sort of dragged on and on.

Points for plot and creativity. A bit slow, little violence so not the greatest film for most guys unless they're into sci-fi.
