  • Studio: Walt Disney Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 90 Mins

Mars may need moms, but does Earth need this movie? Because, by Disney's high standards, this animated sci-fi comedy is charmless and distinctly average. Also, its message is strangely at odds with what you'd expect from the House of Mouse. Be so out of control that your mom can't cope, it says, and you're fine. Be mildly naughty and easily reined in, and your disciplinarian mom may well get whipped away to Mars to "control" mini-Martians. Mars, you see, is a loveless place of non-maternal women and puny, waste-of-space men. Toss into the motion-captured, 3D mix Earth kid Milo (Seth Green) who wants his mom (Joan Cusack) back, a couple of cute robo-bots and an "astronut" buddy who's creepy, but not in a good way, and you have an OK piece of kids' entertainment. Certainly not a film that is likely to be added to the pantheon of platinum Disney classics.
