Critic Reviews of "Mars Needs Moms"Leonard Maltin indieWireAugust 12, 2011
As with a good live-action movie, it all begins with the script, and this one is solid-well thought-out, briskly paced, funny and sweet. In the end, it's the finished film that matters, not the process...Tom Huddleston Time OutApril 06, 2011
The 'Polar Express'-style CG-meets-live-action visuals are creepy and flat, the characters are largely nonexistent and the story takes so many short cuts that it becomes meaningless...Rafer Guzman NewsdayMarch 25, 2011
The film looks neither fully real nor fully imagined, which could be forgiven if Mars Needs Moms had something more to offer besides its nifty technology.Eric D. Snider Film.comMarch 21, 2011
They took a small story, made it complicated and burdensome, filmed some actors performing it, turned those actors into affectless, mechanical cartoons, converted it to 3-D, and dropped it in theaters. Wheeee!Stephen Whitty Newark Star-LedgerMarch 12, 2011
So, okay, men are completely irresponsible slobs, which is why women need to be unceasing nags. Check. Great message for the kids.Tom Long Detroit NewsMarch 11, 2011
This is just a big rollercoaster of a movie, filled with dazzling effects and funny creatures and the requisite five-hankie "I love you, Mom" ending. But then, there are some weird gender political battles at play here.David Keyes Cinemaphile.orgJanuary 31, 2014
Here is a movie that seems at war with the notion that animation can inspire or invigorate.Amy Curtis We Got This CoveredJune 02, 2013
Mars Needs Moms actually entertained me. There's the bright colors and great 3D, but there's also some touching moments and grown-up witJames Plath Movie MetropolisDecember 29, 2011
Mars Needs Moms isn't as bad as you've heard, nor is it as good as it could have been. Will it entertain your family? That depends on how much your kids like mo-cap technology, and how much attention they pay to the inner logic of a film.Guy Haley SFX MagazineDecember 22, 2011
A solid, vibrant family film that parents and young-ish nippers can enjoy together.James Luxford The National (UAE)September 01, 2011
a disposable family adventure it more than fits the billPeter Canavese Groucho ReviewsAugust 08, 2011
The whole fiasco turns out to be an excuse to let Seth Green play a (redubbed) little boy. Next time, maybe just cast a real boy, build some sets in an old barn, and have Mom make the costumes. [Blu-ray 3D]
