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.

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.

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.

The worst animated movie I have ever seen.

On paper it may sound like childish trash that parents will be forced to pay for their kids, but the overall product of Mars Needs Mom does surprisingly has lots of charm and heart that everyone will actually enjoy.

Questions that really need to be answered, stat:

1. Why can't the Martians breathe in Mars' atmosphere? And what *are* they breathing? Is it air? How does that work? Where did they get it from? Is there a natural underground air depot on Mars?

2. How are Martian babies made? No, seriously. This bothers me. "They pop out of the ground every 25 years"? Uh, no. If that were the case, why would they even need two sexes? There is clearly some kind of fertilization going on. Try again.

3. Why are the Martian still watching Earth television from the '60s? It does not take fifty years for television signals to travel from Earth to Mars. Is the adopted slang amusing? Yes. Is it believable? No.

Questions aside, it's a pretty alright move. Not very pretty, and Seth Green's baby face is very, very disturbing, but an alright movie. I'm a bit puzzled as to its message though, because there doesn't seem to be a point. Be a polite and helpful kid? Your mom will get abducted by aliens. Be a bratty, ungrateful kid? Yeah, your mom will still get abducted by aliens.

You know what would have been awesome? If Milo's mom would have died in the helmet scene. Because I was sitting there going "No way. There's no way they're going to... Yesssss. Oh man, this is the most depressing children's movie I've ever seen". But then George/Gribble saved the day and ruined everything.

In short, watch WALL-E instead. It's prettier and has more space.
