Watch on Amazon Prime Video

A bungling little alien, Oh, is on the run from his planet. He needs a new home. That quest brings him to planet earth. He makes friends with a little girl who is out seeking her own adventure. Together, they develop a lovely friendship that takes them places.

The plot is very similar to what you saw in Luca. If you particularly liked the plot in Luca, Home is definitely going to be a home run in this list of movies similar to Luca.

Oh is adorable. Earnest and very innocent and full of smarts. The casting director was spot on when they chose Jim Parsons for Oh’s voice. Oh’s character very much resembles Sheldon Cooper played by Jim Parsons in Big Bang Theory. Oh is exceptionally smart but socially ignorant and it makes for hilariously funny and awkward conversations.

Pop artist Rihanna lends her voice to Tucci, the girl Oh befriends. Home also features voice artistry from the likes of Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez. A thoroughly enjoyable movie. There’s even a cat like you saw in Luca. This one is a lot friendlier though!
