The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - DC

Di­rected by Tim John­son. Voices of Jim Par­sons, Ri­hanna, Steve Martin, Jen­nifer Lopez Home imag­ines an in­va­sion by an species named the Boov. Ad­dicted to com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vices, un­will­ing to connect on a phys­i­cal level, the Boov are, of course, us at our most anti-so­cial and wired in. Su­perb voice­work from Par­sons (weird in his pre­ci­sion) and Ri­hanna (sooth­ingly warm through­out) help flesh out a gen­uinely in­ter­est­ing con­cept. Sadly, the an­i­ma­tion is no bet­ter than work­man­like. G cert, gen re­lease, 93 min
