After tormenting his sister and refusing to eat his veggies, Milo (Seth Green) lands in big trouble and starts viewing his mom (Joan Cusack) as uncaring and unfair. But when martians suddenly abduct her, Milo rushes to the rescue and discovers why all moms are so special. In this fun-filled animated film, based on Berkeley Breathed's popular book, martians need loving, hardworking mothers just as much as humans do.
When I first saw the trailers for "Mars Needs Moms" I was a little skeptical because I found it disturbing to here Seth Green's voice coming out of an 11-year-old child. Thankfully, Disney realized this and at the last minute replaced Seth Green's voice with that of Seth Robert Dusky (LJ from Nickelodeons "Big Time Rush"). Great save Disney. Sadly they went with Robert Zemeckis ("Polar Express" and "A Christmas Carol") style of creepy rotoscoping human animation, but thankful the technology has improved a bit and there were only 3 humans to animate in the movie. As all Disney films go the visuals and attention to detail are amazing. Seeing the movie in 3D only makes it better. "Mars Needs Moms" has a good story that is a little difficult to pick up on at first but director Simon Wells was able to pull it together. I will even admit that there was a moment in the movie where I almost teared up. Almost.
Is this Flick Worth Watching? : Yes. The overall moral of the story is a little confusing, but I think the message is a good one.
