odd film but a shame it's really all over the place Disney has always tried original stories which fall flat but its good to see non sequels being made. that being said, this film is too hard to follow and isn't as interesting as the film thinks it is

worst movie ever made

I sweet little story stretched to feature length and bastardized by creepy, inconsistent and pointless motion capture work leaving us with little but glimpses of what it could have been.

Unfortunately, one of those mass produced computer animated affairs (it seems like there's a ton of 'em) that finds actual storytelling a bothersome detail. What remains is a work that looks and sounds as if it were made for the kiddies but in actuality was made specifically for the moms of those kiddies, a little bit of encouragement for simply being moms (which, as I understand it, is a thankless job, or so I've heard), if not for only listening to toddler conversation for weeks at a time. If that was the case, why not actually write something for those moms with some meat in it instead of only breast milk?

Surprisingly its a good animation. Rather sweet and simple. Great motion capture technique. Milo (Seth Green) is a boy who don't eat his veggie, don't like to take out trash. His mom (Joan Cusack) keep nagging at him and he says it will be good if he doesn't have a mom. Meanwhile, alien in Mars are locking in on her for her good mom quality. At night the aliens kidnap her and Seth chase, get tangle and stranded on the spaceship. An alien girl Ki (Elisabeth Harnois) somehow feel bad but the Supervisor (Mindy Sterling) rules with authority. Milo manage to escape the jail cell with the help of a voice. He jump into the rubbish chute and descend down to rubbish land, where he meet Gribble (Dan Fogler) the one who save him. He says he is a secret astronaut stranded. Gribble accidentally tells Milo his mom will be killed. The aliens are all females and bad mothers, so they want to extract the good mom quality out of human mom to transfer into their nanny bots. The males are dump into the rubbish land. He help Milo go up there again but knew it won't work. His plan to help him escape fail and Milo is on his own. The alien track down the comms and caught Gribble. Ki has been doing flower artwork on the building and bump into Milo who escape to the ledge. He fell and she save him. Milo go back to the rubbish and can't find Gribble. He find a capsule belong to Gribble and find out he is actually George Ribble and his mom was also caught by the alien. Gribble is to be kill by firing squad. Milo save him in time. Supervisor command Ki to kill them but she throw the gun to Milo and the duo escape. They fell to a sewer and reach another part of the below. Gribble tell Milo his story. He was a good boy and led to the capture of his mom. He try to save her but its too late. So he know how it ends. Ki track find them and want to help Milo. She saw a secret files of the elders about Earth and is mesmerize by the flower arts. She also like how Gribble blush when he is near Ki. They uncover a wall drawing of their race as a family. Supervisor has been lying that they are all been raise by nanny bots all along. They reach up there with Ki help. Gribble freed the male aliens. Milo go out there to save his mom. Ki accidentally start the spaceship. Gribble put on his rocket and give Milo a boost. The aliens are barging out and Gribble punch the lock system to prevent the aliens coming. Milo can't free the buckle and use the gun to do it. He manage to wake his mom up. The Supervisor stands in their way towards the ship. Ki shows the rest the drawing and says they should be raise by a complete family. Supervisor says the males just dance and do nothing all day hence she put up the new rules to raise the children with nanny bot and banish males to rubbish land. The others know the truth and refuse to obey Supervisor anymore. Peace is restore in the alien race. Milo and his mom return to Earth. Gribble continue to stay in Mars with Ki since its a new rule now.

A really well made movie that doesnt resort to shoe horned songs, chase scenes or shameless sentimentality. A breath of fresh Martian air.

This is much better than the reviews suggests. I thought it was pretty good. Martians kidnap a boys mum and he ends up on Mars trying to save her. good graphics and highlights the importance of family. Not as funny as other Disney animations but still worth watching

Mars Needs Moms is lame and stupid in a very forgetful way.
October 30, 2014
Good animation, but the overall concept is daft and the stereotypical characters, disjointed scenes and lack of comedy results in an unmemorable children's film which has a very forced, albeit morally positive, message.
½ September 15, 2014
The film's failure at critical and financial doesn't matter. What's matter is that the film's heart holds the ultimate treasure (in lesson and message) to show what you can't live without, backed-up with nice visuals. (A)

(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

Horrible, horrible movie I feel very very sorry for the poor people who's kids dragged them to this absolutely horrid movie. I honestly think this is the worst movie I've seen since shark boy and lava girl. Don't watch please. I usually give movies half a star if it's bad but this um movie (if you can even call it that) doesn't deserve even half a star.

its a great animation,

Bad Disney movie but good animation. Not as good as Pixar or Dreamworks but love the topic, aliens takes mom and it's also sad.

this is one of the worst animated films of the decade and probably even the previous one. the animation while good is creepy and pretty standard for Robert. the premise is stupid, the characters are non existent, the dialogue is childish, and while it does have heart its not enough. i give it one star as an im sorry for the film being a mega flop.
