About Escape From Planet Earth
A lazily-animated family film that might keep children with low standards entertained for ten minutes or so. On Planet Baab, lantern-jawed astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to his fellow blue alien citizens. His nerdy, awkward brother Gary (Rob Corddry) helps him plan and execute successful operations in his role as head of mission control at BASA. But when their tough boss Lena (Jessica Alba) receives a distress call from a dangerous, distant planet Gary is worried and advises Scorch to be careful. Scorch ignores him and is soon captured by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) so Gary sets off to save him. Can he succeed and become an action hero in the eyes of his adventurous son Kip?
