The aliens are stealing the one who gave birth to you in this trailer for Mars Needs Moms!

Nov. 23, 2010by:

When I watch a trailer for a kid's film, I try to get in the mind set of the much younger me. Would I have been excited for this movie when I was little? I'm not sure what the kids are into these days. I had no idea what silly bands were until a few weeks ago.

So I kept the kid frame of mind when watching this trailer for MARS NEEDS MOMS!. I still did not find it appealing. Now, kids that are really fascinated by space might love it. For me, the whole time I was like, "Is that really Seth Green's pre-teen voice?" It's so strange. Speaking of strange, Joan Cusack does the voice of the mom. I love that woman. I'm always excited when she's in something, like ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES, "M-A-L-I-B-U Bar-bie." The story is based off the book by Berkeley Breathed, a Pulitzer-Prize winner for his comic strip Bloom County. The film was directed by Simon Wells (BALTO, THE TIME MACHINE) and produced by none other than Robert Zemeckis.

Bottom line, as a grown-up who enjoys kids films this didn't really win me over. But I think boys that are between the ages of 6-9 might enjoy it.

Synopsis:

"Take out the trash, eat your broccoliwho needs moms, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when shes nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. Produced by the team behind Disneys A Christmas Carol and The Polar Express, Mars Needs Moms showcases Milos quest to save his moma 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 momin more ways than one."

Extra Tidbit: What happened to the ADDAMS FAMILY reboot? I heard about that maybe once, then haven't heard anything else from it. Raul Julia wouldn't have stood for it.

I could understand

why you didn't like the trailer, but I actually found it no that bad. The problem with me is the MOCAP which I can't get over. But other than that looks like a good time.

I saw this trailer before Harry Potter and the audience seemed a bit confused. I just want Zemeckis to stop with this stuff. I don't know how the little ones will feel about this but Zemeckis, Please Stop. Go back to live action films again.

Wow was that bad! As for a Addams Family Reboot you better be kidding about that. Double Bad on both subjects.

Addams Family

Love Joan in Values - coincidentally just watched it last night.

They should hire me to write the reboot of Addams Family. I probably am more knowledgeable in AF than anyone they'd get to pen the thing. I've had a treatment for a third movie (based on the Sonnenfeld franchise) since I was like ten. Still holds up.

Let the calls begin...
