How many times have your children angrily said, “I wish you weren’t my mom!” Well, in Mars Needs Moms (Two-Disc Blu-ray / DVD Combo), nine-year-old Milo finds out just how much he DOES need his mother.
Take out the trash, eat your broccoli . . . who needs moms anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out how much he needs his (Joan Cusack) when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. In a race against time and oxygen, his quest to save her knows no bounds. And with some unexpected help, Milo just might find his way back to her in more ways than one. Complete with intergalactic bonus features, it’s a thrilling journey that’s pure, out-of-this-world crazy fun.
I’m not sure if it’s the animation or the storyline but this has got to be one of the best movies we’ve seen in a long time. Down on Earth, Milo’s mom (Joan Cusack) is dealing with all your typical mom stuff . . . getting her son to do his homework, complete his chores, and just behave well. Of course, Milo rebels and says something to his mom that he doesn’t really mean.
In the meantime, Martian hatchlings are springing up out of the ground up on Mars and the aliens are in dire need of someone to raise them. They find Milo’s mom on Earth and abduct her to raise their children. Of course, Milo walks in just as the space ship is taking off and is able to stowaway for an adventure he’ll never forget.
While on Mars, Milo meets up with some pretty funny characters as they work together to save Milo’s mom. In the end, Milo (and my kids) learn to appreciate their moms for everything they do.
What I really liked about this movie is the animation. It reminds me of the technology used in Polar Bear Express which uses the real life actors’ images to create a digital performance. I mean, Joan Cusack looks just like her real self! So cool and lifelike! Mars Needs Moms is also a great way to remind my kids that everything I do for them I do with their best interest at heart. It gave them a new-found appreciation for me . . . gotta love that!
