Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy are among the impoverished residents of a slum tenement threatened with demolition by evil land developers. Only a miracle can save Cronyn, Tandy, and their friends -- and that miracle manifests itself in the form of a "family" of extraterrestrial flying saucers, who need the electricity provided by the tenement to survive. The grateful humanized spaceships repay their earthbound hosts by doing battle with the villains' henchmen. When the building is engulfed in flames, all seems lost, but the aliens have a few more tricks up their metallic sleeves. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
This movie has everything. It tugs at your heart strings, you begin to feel that the little spaceships-(or whatever you want to call them) are human. You feel their pain, heartache, and joy, and yet they are only machines! I think that it is real cute, and a good movie for the whole family to see together! Bring pop, popcorn and kleenex.
