Audience Reviews for My Favorite Martian
Jul 20, 2020My Favorite Martian is another failed Disney high concept idea aimed at an audience that had zero to no interest in the film. The issue is the jokes are aimed at adults while the slapstick is aimed at children. There's adult themed humour that feels out of place for children. I recently reviewed Flubber and made the connection that this era of Disney was making odd live action films with no real age bracket as the target audience. I wanted to like this film but the jokes are flat and the overall story-line fails to provide any substance for the cast. Children may find something to pass the time but adults will be looking at the running time every so often. 20/07/2020
Jan 14, 2016I am into comedies of various types, especially ones from my childhood and this happens to be one of them. 'My Favorite Martian' is truly a fun and amusing film with an amazing cast and the overall premise makes this film worth watching. Some of the humor in this is pretty immature, but that doesn't stop most people from wanting to see this good comedy that doesn't get mentioned a lot. Just a good "out of this world" comedy that the family can enjoy and have gut busting laughs.
Nov 19, 2015Here is an effort wherein you feel sympathy for the actors wading through the dreck but especially for Ray Walston, blessed (you would hope) to be in the movie of the popular television series he helped establish ... and this is what they give him. Where did I put the bottle of prescription painkillers and the bottle of tequila? Have you heard of this movie? There's a reason you haven't.
