Movie Info

They don't really go to Mars, they go to Venus, but first they go to New Orleans. While working at a missile base, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello inadvertently launch a rocket ship with themselves aboard. After a wild ride around New York City (the Statue of Liberty ducks when the rocket heads her way), Bud and Lou land in the outskirts of New Orleans. The boys are convinced that they've reached Mars, and their faith in this supposition is affirmed when they come across several strangely costumed

A would-be mirthfest that is so aggressively unfunny that it generates laughs for the wrong reasons.

Poor A & C outing with low budget showing everywhere.

Even for Abbott and Costello fans, this must be trying.

Audience Reviews for Abbott and Costello Go to Mars

A goofy, silly movie, but fun. Overall, it's not a good movie, but if you like Abbott and Costello, you'll enjoy it anyway.

Not the best Abbott and Costello Film but still very enjoyable as the boys, get in a rocket ship and accidentally launch it, they buzz around NYC and land in Louisiana outside New Orleans but thy think they are on Mars as everyone is running around in Mari Gras Costumes. They run in to two bank robbers who also get on the ship and they once again launch and this time land on Venus with nothing but beautiful women. Can only give this one 3 1/2 stars as just not the over the top comedy as seen in other films.

More original gags than some of their later films. Manages to keep your interest throughout. A fun outing.

Great, if you're a kid. Well, maybe a kid back in my time, perhaps today's kids would boo this out of the theaters. Still, I find it fun. So there.
