At the first crash site, Dr. Coli mentions the "Martian Incident of 1963". Armitan replies, "Not only is that incident classified, but it never happened!" This refers to the original My Favorite Martian (1963) TV show, which debuted in 1963, and Ray Walston playing Uncle Martin. See more »

I'm beginning to see a glim of potential among you Earthlings. One word of advice: You'll never completely advance as a culture until you take care of your oceans. And do away with daytime talk-shows.

They totally ruined the concept for this story. The second the talking space suit appeared, I knew this was going to be very bad. Too often what happens is that the makers of some films get seduced with the ability of special effects and forget the story. At that point, it was no longer a movie of the beloved My Favorite Martian we have enjoyed from the TV series but a cartoon. I highly recommend people watch the old TV series when it is on in syndication or if its available on DVD, because those shows focused on story and what little special effects that were done in the TV series were strongly carried by the acting, writing and direction.
