Last week we headed on a week long vacation to Newport Beach. I knew that bringing along some movies for movie nights would be great. Since we had just received Mars Needs Moms I figured it would be a perfect movie to watch.
I of course had to watch it with the girls because I have heard lots of good things about this movie. I’ll even admit there is one scene that makes you want to cry. This is a great family movie with an awesome storyline that is easy to follow.
Take out the trash, eat your broccoli — who needs moms anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out how much he needs his mom (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.
Mars Needs Moms hit the store shelves on August 8th.
