Just watched this on Netflix... Ignore the low scores
Give this movie a chance. This movie takes on the inevitable. There will be a first born on Mars, and we can to see a hypothetical situation unfold around that. The characters are fairly typical and different as you would imagine, and the reality is a cliche average earth girl would 99.999999999% dismiss a guy such as this protagonist, but the great acting forces it through to work. Behind the lines and plot holes is a very straight forward and innocent romance that is made to come to life with powerful acting all round. Allow it to be, and you will love this sweet little movie. If you wanna focus on plot holes or simply more believable characters, this may not be for you, but give it a chance certainly is not a 1/10 but it far more enjoyable than the average trumpet laden Hollywood movie.
