Several people from across America, including the President of the United States, try to defend themselves against the alien invasion.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Just a parade of scattershot gags, more often weird than funny and most often just flat. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Aug 25, 2008

Fresh: Perhaps they don't create quite enough deeply funny earthlings to go around, but a thoroughly meanspirited big-budget movie is always a treasurable rarity. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: oaded with wit, nifty little ideas and an extraordinary sense of design, but its allure is of quite a particular nature, much closer to that of Ed Wood than of Burton's earlier, and far more commercially successful, works. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Not as much fun as it should be. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 22, 2006

in this movie a bunch of martians come to earth


One of Tim Burton's best movies, truly a classic!

Keep the Tim Burton classics comin'!

Itunes, has yet again put out a brilliant classic form the extrodinary director Tim burton! This movie is one of the best alien movies you can find! Even if your not much of a sci-fi type of person, you will enjoy this either way! It's basically all comedy, if you ask me! So, okay itunes you've been doing good soo far, now how about getting Edward Scissorhand, another Tim burton classic, plus we get the phenominal actor Jonny Depp! More money for you, and a great movie for us! It's a win-win situation!
