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.

Spaghetti, Ducks and Clydesdales

By Jarret Keene

I rarely explore the Nellis area for the simple reason that it is, for the most part, a musical dead zone. That’s changing, though, thanks to a certain visiting troubadour. Longtime Las Vegas fan and hell-raising Supersuckers frontman Eddie Spaghetti just released his third solo album, Sundowner, his first for Philadelphia-based alt-country label Bloodshot. He’s touring the U.S. with a March 8 stop at his favorite bar in town, Aces & Ales (3740 S. Nellis Blvd., 436-7600, AcesAndAles.com).
