With a cute bit of cultural turnaround, Sony Pictures takes us to Planet 51. To the very cute green people of Planet 51, they are living the dream in their own version of the 1950s, driving around in bubble-shaped hover cars, listening to Doo-wop music, and having cookouts on their lawns. It’s all very much a Jetsons kind of world, but it isn’t ours. With the 1950s, came lots of paranoia, and our own North American culture was rather xenophobic, and now we get to see how silly we were back then by looking through alien eyes.
Our focus is on one particular alien teenager, Lem (Justin Long). He’s a bright kid, sort of awkward. He has a crush on the girl next door, Neera (Jessica Biel), and is working part-time at the local planetarium while pursuing his dreams to become an astronomer. His best buddies are his nerdy friend, Skiff, (Seann William Scott) and his little brother, Eckle (Freddie Benedict). Right now his biggest challenges in life are getting Neera to notice him, making sure the resident town hippie, Glar (Alan Marriott) stays away from Neera, and keeping the elementary school kids interested when they come to the planetarium on their field trips. What he does not know is that the biggest thing to ever hit his planet is about to take over his existence.
