The reviews for this movie were harsh! So when I read them I didn't expect alot. But after watching the trailer I expected to hate it!
I finally watched the movie and boy, was I wrong! This is a great movie! No, it's not a comedy. But do we really only need Shrek-ish animated movies? No. 'Mars Needs Moms' was entertaining, fun to watch and had a cool concept.
Don't be fooled by haters, this is a must watch movie!

An animated film created by computors, it is the story of a boy who thinks his life would be better without his nagging mum, then is appalled to fine his wish come true, when martians come to his house and take his mother back to Mars to program their 'nanny 'bots'- little robots who tend their hatchlings. Following them back to their spaceship, he gets on board, travels to Mars, and with the help of a couple of new found friends, sets out to rescue her. Made presumably for children, it has a P.G. rating !,the only reason I conclude is that younger children might not realize it is pure fantasy, and might become upset that someone might come and take their mum away. For the rest of us, an 11/2 hrs entertainment for children on a wet afternoon, and not too boring for accompanying adults.

Ignore the stupid title and the one bloke who wrote a rubbish review as he says he only likes films like The Queen instead of high octane high fun brilliant tech films like this one. This is funny and fast and full of action from start to finish plus it gets your kids to appreciate you for at least till bed time so I recommend this to anyone who likes fun and Sci-fi and action films. I could watch this again and again and so could my kids aged between four and fifteen so a genuine family film. Five stars from this family hope you like it too. p.s. this film has a really satisfying ending too.

How this wasn't a major hit at the Cinema I'll never know.It's got all the excitement you could wish for when the young boy boards a spaceship that's kidnapped his Mother to become a Mother on Mars....the people he meets,the aliens,the chases,the gripping bits where you think he's ging to get caught.... just watch it,..you'll see what I mean .... kids LOVED this one!!

Mars needs Mom indeed! Hilarious, educating and deserve a five star rating. This film is about parenting, good parenting. It hurts a lot when moms have done everything and the children don't appreciate. It's like being taken for granted. Bad son first later turned out good. He'd learn a good learn. This is a must-watch for everybody — children and adults.

Mars Needs Mom is a heartwarming family film, true to Walt Disney tradition, with great animation and delightful plot. Don't expect it as a silly film, even though there is humor, it has a serious theme as well, consider it as an allegory of modern parenting intended for both kids and parents...oh, and keep your Kleenex ready for those little tears too :)
Milo (Seth Green) is a rebellious kid to his parents, especially to his mother (Joan Cusack) who never appreciate the value of "momness" but the Martians from outer space do. They stole Milo's mom for her "momness" urgently needed in Mars...It was the day he wishes he never had a mom!
Milo stows away on the spaceship determined to rescue his mom, with a deeper appreciation and perspective for his mom...The adventure starts there...
The animation is brilliant, made by Image Movers Digital, Robert Zemeckis' own studio, the animation couldn't be better. It's realistic and spectacular. The characters look more natural than the usual animated figures...Isn't Gribble (Dan Fogler) awesome! What a brilliant facial and skeletal animation!
If you are a fan of Walt Disney movies, animation or a good movie, especially if you are selecting a movie for the kids...This is a must to see film. Add it to your selection :)
A note about Blu-ray version of the film, it's wonderful in 3-D enabled television, I liked it better than a few other films. There are Double Play and Triple Play versions or Two Disc combo pack and Four Disc Pack, the latter pack has an exclusive 3D version feature as well. Enjoy!

Regardless of previous reviews, I actually like this film. I like it better each time I see it, as i see bits i did not pick up before.
Look at how it is made - clever stuff.
No film jargon as usual - I think it is a well made, funny and entertaining film.
At the price you have nothing to lose. RJC.

This went down brilliantly with my daughter and her friends when they watched it. They were glued to it completly, desperate for a good out come for the caracters when mild peril was going on especially on the mom element. They all went home appreciating their moms much more for at least an hour or two.
