Our Score
Five freaks of nature, not unlike those classic science-fiction icons Mothra, the Blob, the 50 Foot Woman, the Fly and the Gillman, are released from US government security to stave off an alien invasion in this charming, funny and ingeniously detailed cartoon caper from DreamWorks. The focus is mainly on Susan (voiced by Reese Witherspoon), who is hit by a meteor on her wedding day and grows into the huge Ginormica. The film is a valentine to B-movie creature features, with smart scripting and superior craftsmanship. Discerning adults and demanding children alike will be entranced by the action-packed dazzle and visually enthralling delights, including a stunning battle on San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. And for sci-fi buffs, the references will prove delicious, taking in the likes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET and Men in Black.

Summary

A woman is exposed to radiation from a meteorite that causes her to grow to an enormous size during her wedding. She is captured by the military and held prisoner with an assortment of strange creatures - but when aliens invade, these freaks of nature are the only ones capable of saving the world. Animated sci-fi comedy, with the voices of Reese Witherspoon and Hugh Laurie. Includes Lotto.
