Mars Needs Moms (PG-13)


Based on a children’s book, Mars Needs Moms is a tone-deaf animated disaster. Milo (performed in motion-capture by Seth Green) is a bratty kid who hates to do what he’s told. During a spat with his doting mother (Joan Cusack), an alien spaceship kidnaps Milo’s mom in order to appropriate her mothering skills. Milo sneaks onto the spacecraft and falls in with an eccentric older Earth boy (Dan Fogler), whose own mother was kidnapped under similar circumstances some years earlier.
