"'s a hoot.  Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"...a great, jaunty adventure...  Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The perfect family film in every way...  Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine

Editor's Note
His mother (voice of Joan Cusack) abducted by Martians intent on harvesting her maternal instincts to nurture their young, nine-year-old Milo (voice of Seth Green) stows away in an alien spacecraft bound for Mars in a bid to bring her safely back to Earth. Later, on the Red Planet, Milo befriends a subterranean dwelling earthling named Gribble (Dan Folger) and a spirited Martian lass named Ki (Elsabeth Harbois) who agree to help him locate his missing mother and confront the head alien in charge (voice of Mindy Sterling).

Expert Review Mars Needs Moms - DVD Review DVD Reviews
Published on: 8/9/2011 4:00 AM
Let's not kid ourselves -- Mars doesn't need moms, and Earth doesn't need this movie. Mars Needs Moms is a film that regurgitates witless moronism at the audience for 90 minutes and concludes with an uncomfortable statement about the importance of dominant patriarchy in modern society. To be fair, I don't think such a message is necessarily intentional -- I'm almost certain this film is incapable of thinking on that high a the full review

Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]nventive and vigorous....Savvy moms and dads will recognize reference points to sci-fi classics." 03/11/2011

A.V. Club
"It's a fun rush...and an intense one, too, with plenty of grim moments along the way that heighten the sense of danger as MARS NEEDS MOMS moves toward an unexpectedly wrenching finale." -- Grade: B 03/10/2011

Box Office
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The perfect family film in every way, moms, dads, kids and even those Martians are gonna love this funny, warm and wonderful tale." 03/10/2011

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's brought vibrantly to life by some AVATAR-esque motion-capture magic." 05/01/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"MARS NEEDS MOMS is a great, jaunty adventure....Enhanced by nimble ad-libbing from the comedy-trained cast, the screenplay is delightful, by turns funny and emotional..." -- Grade: A- 03/18/2011

The Onion A.V. Club 8 of 10
Technically the film is a marvel, exhibiting the most realistic use of the performance capture yet. Characters are vivid and believable and action sequences are flawless. The technique has come a long way from the "dead eye" look of Polar Express and is particularly effective here, especially in the case of greasy Gribble, beautifully voiced by Fogler who never misses a beat. Green, on the other hand, is a little long in the tooth to be playing a 9-year-old, but manages it perfectly with his inventive, wide-eyed facial work. There turned out to be no way around his adult larynx, however, and another young actor (Seth Dusky) was called in to do the vocal interpretation of Milo. Cusack is warm and winning as Mom and Sterling nails the evil Supervisor. With great use of 3D Mars Needs Moms should be an out-of-this-world hit that delivers a strong message about the importance of family and a mother's love for her children. - Keith Phipps
