Alpha and Omega, an animated film featuring the voices of Justin Long and Hayden Panettiere, opens in theaters nationwide this Friday, September 17, 2010.
Alpha and Omega synopsis:
What makes for the ultimate road trip? Hitchhiking, truck stops, angry bears, prickly porcupines and a golfing goose with a duck caddy. Just ask Kate and Humphrey, two wolves who are trying to get home after being taken by park rangers and shipped halfway across the country. Humphrey is an Omega wolf, whose days are about quick wit, snappy one-liners and hanging with his motley crew of fun-loving wolves and video-gaming squirrels. Kate is an Alpha: duty, discipline and sleek Lara Croft eye-popping moves fuel her fire. Humphrey’s motto – make ‘em laugh. Kate’s motto – I’m the boss. And they have a thousand miles to go. Back home rival wolf packs are on the march and conflict is brewing. Only Kate and Humphrey can restore the peace. But first, they have to survive each other.
Alpha and Omega features the voices of Justin Long, Hayden Panettiere, Christina Ricci, Danny Glover and Dennis Hopper.
This movie got unfavorable reviews overall.
“Underwhelming in the style of most off-brand CG, Alpha and Omega is livened by pretty Rocky Mountain backdrops and leadened by stock characters and the wolves’ weirdly prissy behavior.” -Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly
“Even with a terrific voice cast, this animated romantic adventure is hit-and-miss.” -Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
“As with any movie, this kids’ film is only as good as its writing — the jokes, the cute bits, the heart. And that’s where Alpha and Omega comes up short.” -Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
