This movie grossed $6.8 million in its opening weekend, which is the 19th-worst opening ever for a film playing in more than 3,000 theaters, and one of the worst openings for a major 3D release. With a budget of $150 million and a total gross of just $39 million, this movie is considered a massive box office bomb, and has the worst-ever financial reputation for a film branded by Disney. Its commercial failure contributed to Disney canceling its planned remake of Yellow Submarine (1968), which was to be made with the same motion capture technology. 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.
