According to the Los Angeles Times, Seth Green spent six weeks in a special sensor-equipped performance-capture suit while performing his lines as Milo. During post-production, the 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 that 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 »
Milo's weight was less on Mars than Earth, which would be correct. However, when Gribble and Ki are on Earth, their weight should be higher than on Mars - by a factor of approximately three. This would have made it impossible for them to walk or really move around much at all. See more »

I have to start out by saying that I enjoyed reading all of the obvious planted reviews about this movie. There is a reason that hardly anybody went to see this movie, and it isn't just because it was released around the same time as a couple of other "family" movies. Those reasons may include hideous character design, lazy animation (mo-cap), and a generic and unbelievable story. Not to mention an unmistakeably sexist trailer that leaves the audience groaning.
Who cares if Mars needs Moms? I don't. You won't, either, especially after watching this movie. The ensemble of unlikeable, repulsive characters will see to that.
