Mars Needs Moms 

 

The title Mars Needs Moms is a little misleading. Actually Mars needs one mom. This mom will give her life (without her knowledge or consent) to program these nanny-bots. Mars needs one mom every so many years. My guess is around every ten years to maybe fifteen. Mars Needs Moms is still a heart wrenching movie on so many fronts. I will do my best not to spoil anything for any of our readers who have not seen this movie yet.

Mars Needs Moms has lots of action. Martians shooting at the humans, people in peril, and some angry faces. The Martians are run by the supervisor and she is a mean old nasty hateful thing. It is very easy to dislike her - immediately. Many of the other Martians are friendly, kind, and curious. Love is expressed visually in Mars Needs Moms in the form of hugging. This concept is new to the Martians, or had been lost over the years of technological progress.

The voice acting in Mars Needs Moms is great. Gribble is an amazing character. Get stranded on Mars, being the only human, and having very little contact with anyone would push anyone over the edge mentally. Dan Fogler does a fantastic job. There were times his little nuances grated on my nerves, but it made him a more real character. Seth Green does a fantastic job as nine year old Milo. One of the special features contains some profanity - which really surprised me.

Speaking of the extras, Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Blu-ray + DVD combo package. The bonus features are an extended opening, deleted scenes, life on Mars, Martian 101, and Fun with Seth. I really enjoyed seeing how they came up with the Martian language. It was a very interesting collaboration. It makes me wonder if we could come up with some special language on our own.

There are a few interesting messages in Mars Needs Moms. Art is important, and it is better than order. I am not sure how far I would take that lesson though. Someone has to work otherwise we all starve. The main lesson in Mars Needs Moms is how important family is. Milo learns to appreciate his mom even more. A lot of kids are not as respectful as they should be. Those kids could learn from Mars Needs Moms.

It was a real treat for me to be able to watch and review Mars Needs Moms. This movie is a great one for Mother's Day. I don't see how a sequel could be done, but it is an interesting world that I would not mind seeing again. I loved what happened to the Supervisor at the end of the movie. She obviously needs an education in handling babies.
