Take out the trash, eat your broccoli—who needs moms, anyway?
Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just 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. Produced by the team behind Disney’s A Christmas
Carol and The Polar Express, Mars Needs Moms showcases
Milo’s quest to save his mom—a wild adventure in Disney Digital 3D™ and
IMAX® 3D that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an
elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their
leader (Mindy Sterling). With the help of a tech-savvy, underground
earthman named Gribble (Dan Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki
(Elisabeth Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom—in more
ways than one.
The style of animation – the same type of zombie dead stare
ahead of Polar Express and other movies – just seems wrong for this
kind of movie. The dialogue in the trailer also seems like genuine
clunkers so it doesn’t seem as if anything will rescue this latest Disney
flick . . .
