5 Messages From “Mars Needs Moms”

I am by no means a movie critic or a Sci-Fi action animation expert. I cannot judge special effects, sound effects, or acting performance.  I can, however, see myself in certain characters and interpret things my way, finding a message for me in every flick I see.

“Mars Needs Moms” touched my heart and made me cry. It was an entertaining and heartwarming story, very close to home:

“No broccoli, no TV”

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. King James VersionWell, my kids always loved broccoli (my veggie-loving techniques started at birth), and they never watch cable television; however, I am a loving yet strict disciplinarian.

The 88-minute movie is based on a children’s book by cartoonist Berkeley Breathed. It is rated PG…but doesn’t EVERYTHING need parental guidance?

Here are 5 messages I received from the film. These points aren’t spoilers; you’re just going to have to put it on your “To See List”.


1- Words can wound and destroy. “My life would be a whole lot better if I didn’t have a mom at all.” Be careful what you wish for ’cause you just might get it!
2- Earthlings, Martians, and the whole universe, need moms. Moms who are not authoritarian, quick-tempered, and violent; moms who discipline their children and teach them values, respect and good manners.
3- Ruling the world sounds appealing, but nurturing a child is more needed – and rewarding. As women, our nurturing skills are innate and vital to a child’s happiness.
4- Earthlings, Martians, and the whole universe, need dads, too! “All this dancing and playing — we must throw them away!.”  A loving father is essential to a positive childhood and a good mom knows and appreciates that.
5- “That crazy love thing” may not be politically correct, but it is the only way to happiness. Appreciate the ones you love…Hint: love is a verb!

I know the movie has interesting reviews, controversial, even. Go see “Mars Needs Moms”, wear the 3-D glasses, bring some tissue, and judge for yourself.
I really love these messages and think we need more movies to portray the need for family appreciation.

Thanks Elayna for your words of wisdom and Momtivation! I'm glad you and the girls enjoyed the movie. I did too cry throughout the movie, and was amazed how much attention my kids put into it, even my 4 yr. old understood the message very well. It is a great family movie. It teaches kids, even younger ones, that even when we are the most stricted, we don't stop loving them; and even when they do not agree with us, they still need their Moms.
