I just got finished watching an excellent movie called "Mars Needs Moms". The movie is about a boy named Milo who goes on a big adventure to help save his mom from aliens. The aliens that live on Mars are not very good mothers so they look to Earth to find good mothers to steal. My favorite characters are Milo, Milo's mom, and Gribble. I liked Gribble because he helped Milo get his mother back and he helps Milo to see how important his mother truly is. My favorite part of the movie is when Milo has to save his new friend Gribble from the aliens. Gribble gets captured and the aliens are going to shoot him. Milo swings in to save the day and it is awesome. This movie does have some characters that are bad and try to stop Milo from saving his mom. The aliens in the uniforms are bad because they listen to the Supervisor. The Supervisor controls everyone and wants everyone to do what she says. I would recommend this movie for ages three and up. I think depending on what age you are is how you will see this movie. For example, my brother is 5 and he didn't think the movie was scary at all. I am 8 and I found the movie to be a little scary because it made me think about how sad I would be if I lost my own mother. But don't worry everything turns out ok in the end! Go out and buy this movie when it comes out on Disney DVD and Blu Ray. Reviewed by Anthony Aranda, age 8, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
As a mom I can relate to the mom in this story. A good story, very entertaining. I like how Ki, a character on Mars, referred to love as "that crazy love thing." There are lots of fun questions you can ask a kid about this movie; "What would you do if Mars took your mom or dad?", "What makes a good mom or dad?" Shows a love between mom's and their children and between friends. Action-packed, entertaining and shows many emotions such as love, kindness and friendship. Milo learns you should be careful what you wish for, when he wishes he never had a mom and then she was kidnapped and taken by spaceship to Mars. A fun and emotional adventure as we watch Milo save his mom.
Take out the trash, eat your broccoli - who needs moms anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she's nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. In a race against time and oxygen, his quest to save her knows no bounds. And, with some unexpected help, Milo just might find his way back to her - in more ways than one.
