The Martian adopts the name 'Uncle Martin' and becomes friends with Tim, whilst he fixes his ship. Unaware to Martin, Tim actually wants to reveal him to the world, but can he actually do that to his new friend and 'Uncle'? Written by
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 »

Does not do the Original justice. Not worth spending your time and money on....
We went into this movie because my husband had enjoyed the original version of `My favourite Martian'. We had our 6 year old daughter with us. She wanted to leave halfway through the movie which was fine with both her parents! The parts we did see were only occasionally humorous, mostly either too silly or gross. I would expect that this movie might appeal to kids between 9-12, if that. It's definitely not suited for younger children. From what I've heard the original series was by far superior and if you are going to "relive the past" you'll probably be disappointed.
