Adventure, Animation, Sci-Fi
This is a clever mishmash of ’50s-style alien-invasion/monster movies and modern-day CGI animation. It possesses a terrifically offbeat sense of humor, creating endearing characters out of stuff like the Blob and gigantic caterpillars. It is also sharp, crisp 3-D entertainment for those of you near the theaters offering that option. Susan (the voice of Reese Witherspoon) is getting set for her marriage to Derek (Paul Rudd), an egocentric weatherman, when she winds up underneath a meteor from outer space. After dusting herself off, she arrives at the wedding literally glowing, and experiences a growth spurt that does serious damage to the church. Measuring in at nearly 50 feet tall, she winds up at a government compound, where she is dubbed Ginormica and must room with a series of freaks who have been collected over the years. Seth Rogen is especially funny as a blue blob.
