Aliens In The Attic is perfectly adequate entertainment for its core demographic of children between 8 and 13 years old, for everyone else it's the sort of thing Joe Dante would have directed in the 1980's.
A group of kids battle a group of aliens at their summer home and their parents won't believe them.
The comedy is cheesy, the plot lacks imagination and the visual effects are poorly done, but the intended audience won't care.
4/10
