Life couldn't get much worse for News Producer Tim O'Hara. He humiliates the one he loves, Brace Channing and ends up getting fired by her father. Then, a Martian from Mars arrives in his home. 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
My Favorite Martian (1963) never had a finale episode showing Martin going back home to Mars, so the movie ties up that loose end by having him state he arrived in 1963, and was now finally going back home. See more »
When Martin is drinking the liquid from the lava lamp, it is clear that he is actually pouring it over his shoulder and not in his mouth. See more »
This is similar to the Martian incident of 1963.
Careful, stupid. Not only is that incident classified, it never happened!

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.
