My husband and I watched this movie with our 3 year old and all of us were entertained. The concepts were original, the suspense was nail-biting and the comedy keeps coming. I was shocked to see the poor reviews from critics. Obviously, they don't understand what a family likes in a movie but Disney does. This is truly a hidden treasure. It is refreshing to find a movie that is centered

A majestic musical score by the great composer John Powell somehow makes everything old feel fresh and wondrous again. Full Review

Instead of breathing life into cartoonist Berkeley Breathed's cheeky kids morality tale, the movie - with all its 3-D motion capture animation flash - flatlines. Full Review

The movie has more charm when it's earthbound. Cusack and Green's mother-son repartee has sharp comic timing. Once the story veers off to space, it goes downhill. Full Review

After the novelty of these backgrounds and comin'-at-ya bits wears off, Mars Needs Moms has to rely on Fogler's obnoxious Jack Black Jr. shtick, a weak subplot involving a '60s-obsessed Martian graffiti artist (Harnois) and rote video-game-y action sequences to carry it along-and that simply won't cut it. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
There's nothing to be said in favor of sitting through garbage, and this movie is awash in the stuff, both figuratively and literally: One of its main locales is a vast garbage dump. Full Review
