Take out the trash, eat your broccoli — who needs moms, anyway? In Mars Needs Moms nine-year-old Milo finds out just how much he needs his mom (Cusack) when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. Milo embarks on a quest to save his mom — a wild adventure that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader. With the help of a tech-savvy, underground earthman named Gribble (Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki (Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom — in more ways than one.
