When Earth is taken over by the overly confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated while all Boov get busy reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov named Oh. The two fugitives realize there's a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime.
Factual Mistake As the Boov used anti-gravity magnetic balls that gathered in clusters things they didn't need (such as bicycles), a group of toilets in the air make a flushing sound but that's impossible because a toilet cannot flush without water.
