Mars Needs Moms is a fun, painless way for your kids to get their liberal propaganda. If only I were a social progressive, I could have enjoyed this flick more fully.
The Martians in this film lived in a female-dominated society where the males were the nurturers—and more than a bit flaky. Kids will get such a kick out of all the tightly-fitted Martian glutes that they might miss the intended pro-mom message. And no, I'm not dirty-minded; I just know kids. The bit of toilet humor at the end was cute, and in only moderately poor taste.
As in most programs aimed at kids, the old people in Mars are the villains, whose single purpose is to spoil everyone’s fun. The old villain, by the way, was the recipient of the above mentioned toilet humor.
Mars Needs Moms provides plenty of action and cheesy-but-fun acting. The fantastic animation and effects often caused me to forget it was animated, and that I was enjoying progressive propaganda.
