Movie Blurb(From IMBd): When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own. Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME.

Review: This movie is so adorable. I loved every minute and it even made me tear up a little. An alien race takes over Earth and somehow, one human escapes the human round up. Suddenly she is the odd man out. Then there is Oh. An alien who is just clumsy, different, and the outcast of the entire Boov species. While Oh is running from a mistake he runs into Tip and together they go on a quest to find Tip’s mom.

I instantly fell in love with Oh, because he is so much like me. He thinks differently from most of everyone around him. He is clumsy like I am…I trip over flat surfaces and I get tongue tied so easily. I party when no one else parties. I am Oh!

On top of falling in love with Oh, you just feel so bad for Tip. She is the only human left and she has no idea what has happened to the rest of the humans in the world. She doesn’t even know if her mother is still alive.

This movie is so heartwarming and I have no shame in how much I enjoyed it. It’s the perfect movie for days when you are just not having a good day and you need something that make you cry, laugh, and enjoy with a big bag of popcorn. I would recommend this for anyone that wants to watch a good family movie. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
