Oh, an alien on the run from his own people, lands on Earth and makes friends with the adventurous Tip, who is on a quest of her own.

I liked the movie -- it was cute if essentially unoriginal.
I will, however, continue my complaint that Pig was definitely a female cat.

I liked it too. It's the first kids movie that I can think of that deals with the problems of colonialism.

Just saw this with my kids, and we liked it quite a lot. Personally I really appreciated the colonialism aspect. I also found Oh's character really interesting; he knows he is out of step with his people, but he doesn't really understand exactly how. He knows he is fucking SOMETHING up but he just can't really get a handle on what. As someone who occasionally deals with social awkwardness, I could really kind of relate.

I really enjoyed this movie (going on 4th viewing with my toddler now). No dead parents! The slushious car still cracks me up. The music is fun and upbeat. Oh is a more charming version of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.
(Thanks for saying it talks about "colonialism". All I knew was that the Boov are obviously white folks, but " colonialism " sounds much smarter.)
Toddler loves it. Fun. Cute. "What is the purpose of your face?" *snort*

And! Tip doesn't have a love story. She's not trying to be prettier or skinnier or princess-y. She has a real body shape with shape. She's proud of her A in geometry. (Girl good at math!) She is a POC!
And then the "monsters" is really just a dad looking for his kids.
