There isn't enough nostalgia for the old series to recommend for any beyond the most juvenile mind-set.

An utterly pointless and unimaginative remake based on the classic '60s sitcom...a meteoric misfire

Only the total collapse of Hollywood can save us from a reprise of My Mother the Car.

Walston displays a crisp wit and blithe sense of whimsy otherwise lacking in this loser.

Travel from Mars to Earth is an amazing feat, but not much more remarkable than reviving a sitcom that had been dead for a third of a century.

This is entertainment of the lightest, most inconsequential sort.

What we have here is a highly agreeable cast goofing around within the familiar parameters of the alien-lost-on-Earth story, to absolutely no purpose except killing time.

a light-hearted silly movie aimed at showing kids a good time. Disney makes no serious attempts to keep this film reasonable from an adult perspective.

I found it to be acceptable video fodder.

Doesn't even have the little spark of life that actors with a certain measure of lunacy and chemistry can deliver.

Everything else in the film, which was directed by Donald Petrie, is either cute or irritating.

Almost entirely predicated on low-brow misfires and the thinnest of story precepts.

A clever and well-written screenplay is what saved this thing from being just like any other failure in the remake experiment.

This is filmmaking not for children, but for idiots of all ages.

It is a movie that contains laughs, but they are more of the embarrassing type than ones created by humorous situations.
