According to the Los Angeles Times, Seth Green spent 6 weeks in a special sensor-equipped performance-capture suit while performing his lines as Milo. During post-production, filmmakers noticed that Green was able to physically imitate the movements and behaviors of a 9-year-old boy, but his voice sounded too mature for the character. His voice was replaced by the voice of 11-year-old Seth Robert Dusky. Green's voice still appears as the voice of one of the hippies on the '70s television show Ki watches. Mars Needs Moms Trailer 1, available on the Internet, was made with Seth Green voicing Milo. See more »

I saw it with two of my little cousins and i was not looking forward to it atall after hearing how it bombed in box office and everyones reviews were really bad. It turns out I kinda liked it, the animation was very cool in 3D, which it must be seen in 3D or not nearly as cool.
It was simple family friendly entertainment, very vibrant and original with very creative digital technology behind it. It was fast paced and kept the kiddies smilin'. More than I was expecting definitely, and overrall not that bad, I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a film to bring some kids to. As a small bonus at the end they shows behind the scenes of how they filmed it with live action actors, very cool.
