I give this 0 stars. It was horrible storytelling, bad animation and just depressing. I think it is by far the saddest movie I have ever seen. It grossed 21 million and its budget was 150 million. That is sad.

Aside from one effective, gut-wrenching emotional moment (albeit a shockingly dark one), this entire film is one long sour note. It's an ugly, obnoxious film that has nothing new to offer, nor an interesting way of presenting what it has; an unpleasant slog and a waste of talented actors.

Review: Umm wow I'm sorry this is probably andhopefully the only time where the plot gives away the whole movie. Well I guess you don't have to watch it. Don't worry you will thank me this movie sucked horribly. Worst Disney movie ever? Maybe but I haven't seen John Carter yet. But trust me you will thank me that you don't have to watch this garbage.
Rating: 1/10
Recommendation: Burn all copies of this movie and remove it from the Face of the Earth. Skip,Skip,Skip

Wow this was really really bad

LAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate the main character! He said his life would be better if he didn't have a mom at all. That alone is enough to make me hate him. Some of the visuals can look good, but the motion-capture animation on the humans look unnatural.

The plot is embarrassingly stupid and follows an incredibly tedious story structure, the character designs are all hideous and unintentionally terrifying, the dialogue is laughably inept, the main character is a detestable brat who's almost as unlikable as Caillou, and the rest of the characters are either really bland, dumb as hell, or both. Worst motion capture movie ever made!

A movie that massively bombed for Disney, and you can see why. The animation looks awful and even creepy at times. The story isn't very good and the whole idea is stupid. It's not the worst Disney movie I've ever seen, but it's pretty bad. (First and only viewing - 11/22/2011)

Bad and Forgettable. Watching this is disturbing.

The movie was ok. It would have been better if they hadn't portrayed the men as disposable dancing monkeys. I had a hard time overlooking that story line choice. I'm all for showing strong intelligent females, but we don't need to debase our males in the process. I regret not asking the dad with his kids sitting beside me what he thought. Anyways - I will never watch this film again.

Mars Needs Moms tem uma ótima direção e efeitos visuais bem legais,mesmo assim sofre com um roteiro podre e bagunçado.

es pésima esta pelicula,las voces de seth green y joan cusack no estan mal pero lo malo de esta porqueria es que tiene una animación re pobre,simon wells y robert zemeckis son buenos directores, pero dirigiendo esta bazofia son muy malos directores.

Great idea, great characters, poorly assembled, but could have been so much better. Still enjoyed it for the idea and the characters.

I don't know about you guys, but the visuals from the photos alone just freak me out. They're some of the creepiest stuff I've seen in a while, and I'm almost tempted to gouge my eyes out after seeing them. I mean, I have no problems with scary material for kids, but if it's scary for the right reasons. The visual design of this movie is scary for all the WRONG reasons. They LOOK like they came from Mars, and that's not a compliment.

I may be counting on visiting Mars myself before I see this movie, and I will definitely visit Mars before watching this movie a lot, unless I die first.

Visually charming and thematically interesting, but narratively and spiritually moribund, Mars Needs Moms has plenty of eye candy, but it might be too depressing and emotionally shocking for it's younger audience.

160126: This is a unique film. I loved the animation as it came to everything except the living creatures. Gribble was the exception, his characterization being the best. I've always struggled with these films that try to closely animate human beings. It always looks off to me. Yes, I know, that sounds funny. Mars Needs Mom reminds me of the animation on The Polar Express (2004). I did not cotton to the alien art either but the story of their relationships, male and female, was fun. Perhaps, because of similar life experiences, found the overall story a bit harsh for my ten-year-old son. Having had to deal with a unique maternal relationship I can see why my he did not want to watch this film again (he had seen it earlier). Single parent children may find certain aspects of this film...difficult. Fogler, again Gribble, was fantastic and have always had a place for Cusack since Grosse Pointe Blank (1997). This film will remain in my collection because of the animation strengths I mentioned but I do not anticipate it will get watched often for the similarly referenced weaknesses.

Not without its share of shortcomings and compromises, but all well-meaning enough. While the way that the performances are captured alone - well makes up for it. All in all, much better than its reputation implies.

The animation looks good.
