MARS NEEDS MOMS (2011) (**1/2)

The real conflict in this film isn't between the humans and Martians, but between the cliché and the generally humorous and touching. Weak pop culture jokes are pitted against heartwarming scenes between mothers and sons. Action out of the action device handbook pulls down some good character development. It's a battle till the very end.

Movie Review: 'Mars Needs Moms'

This Disney new 3D animation release opening TODAY (March 11, 2011) is mediocre at best. The storyline about a young boy who went up to Mars to save his mom who was kidnapped by Martians is weak and not believable. The character Gribble (stranded boy who grew up to be an adult on Mars) is not credible or well developed. The visual is not that impressive either.
