Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

The late Douglas Adams summed up our planet as ‘mostly harmless’, a description that also applies to this tolerable animated time-filler. Brawny Scorch Supernova (the voice of Brendan Fraser), hero of the planet Baab, responds to a distress call from Earth. Trapped by Area 51 overlord Shanker (William Shatner), Scorch learns to respect his nerdy rescuing brother (Rob Corddry) and stop calling him a ‘computer-lovin’ mama’s boy’. Alongside jokes about product placement and plugs for convenience store chain 7-Eleven, lessons about teamwork are rendered in passable CGI.
