Home-film2Aww, this film is cute and funny, and had the children giggling away. Based on the children’s book, ‘The True Meaning of Smekday’ by Adam Rex, the film introduces us to ‘Tip’, voiced by Rihanna.  The character draws on more than just Rihanna’s voice, as Tip is also from Barbados, now living in America, and trying to escape the alien invasion of the Boov.
