The girls and I ventured to our very first 3D Movie together (with Daddy meeting us there on his way home from his trip).
We got our 3D glasses and then waited for seats (finally taking some with "reserved" written on them).
About 2.3 seconds later, #2 said "I ready go home now."
Ummmm…let’s get this movie started.
It started and the theater settled down and put their glasses on (the girls were sooo stinking cute in their glasses, but we weren’t even allowed to have our phones on, so no pictures).
Mars Needs Moms? It’s rated PG (I should have looked into that). It’s listed as a family movie. I would add to that "a family with kids like 8 and up." Our sensitive four year old found a lot of the movie scary (and I have to agree with her, as a four year old, watching somebody potentially lose their mom, it would be tough). And there were guns and lasers and rays and really scary bad people.
The graphics for the movie were really fabulous. And, the 3D sure added a great element of depth to the screen (without making too many things fly out at us). At approximately 85 minutes, it’s a shorter movie and good for kids. It’s definitely action packed, too.
For us, the plot was a little dark (you don’t know what is going on with the mother for almost the entire movie) and frantic with the main character Milo and sidekick Gribble constantly going and doing.
Nine-year-old Milo finds out just how much he needs his mom when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her "mom-ness" for their own young.
Milo’s quest to save his mom involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader, the Supervisior. With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble and his bionic underground pet named Two-Cat and a rebellious Martian girl called Ki, Milo just might find his way back to his mom — in more ways than one.
After the movie, we headed to a chocolate shop for pictures, treats and balloon butterflies. The girls were so excited about them they wouldn’t even let me take a picture.
