** [[spoiler:Milo's mom almost gets vaporized to provide memories for the new generation of Nanny-Bots, then Milo gets shot in the foot with a laser and suffers not from excessive blood loss from GETTING SHOT, but will now die because his helmet broke, and then his mom pulls a HeroicSacrifice to save him, dooming her. This also spawns some FridgeBrilliance.]]

** To be fair, the conflict faced in the movie is that the Martian men are deliberately being suppressed and done away with, and the women deliberately kept at work while the children are left to be raised by robotic nannies. There's nothing to indicate that some of them won't perform work now that their families have been reunited, just that they'll have a ''choice'' this time as to whether they do or don't.

* UnfortunateImplications: A [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/current-movie-reviews/battle-los-angeles.php?page=2 Something Awful review points out]] just how strictly this movie adheres to conservative family roles: the Martian women have assumed positions of power that have left them completely unable to care for Martian children ([[SarcasmMode as there's no way someone can hold a full-time, influential job and be a loving mother at the same time]]), the Martian men have become effete layabouts as a result. The movie concludes that Martian children will only truly thrive when raised by a mommy and daddy, and anything other than the traditional nuclear family isn't capable of raising children.

** This is actually one of the reasons that the movie bombed at the box office, as despite being a kid's movie a lot of kids didn't want to see a movie where your mom would get kidnapped and killed.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Milo's EstablishingCharacterMoment of spitefully refusing to do his chores doesn't exactly do much to endear his character to the audience. That the rest of the intro has him continuing to be disobedient towards his obviously overworked mother doesn't help matters. It is obvious that they're supposed to be signs of missing his absent father, but the fact that he takes it out on his mother combined with him not really reciving any relatable character traits, and the fact that he just seems a bit too old to be throwing such tantrums just makes him look like a huge {{jerkass}}.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The fact that Disney axed Image Movers before the movie was released in theatres speaks plenty for what they thought of it. They essentially set it out to die. This [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/why-disneys-mars-needs-moms-167551 article]] explains more.

* TheWoobie: Gribble is this. To recap, he wasn't a naughty boy. He was a good lad, listened to his mom, did everything he was told to do. As it turns out [[spoiler: that's why the Martians took her from Earth. Like Milo, he followed the Martians in an attempt to rescue his mother. Unlike Milo, he failed to save his mother.]] This left him alone on Mars. He's had no social contact with other humans for at least 20 years and has had to live with the burden of that [[spoiler: ''he'' is the reason his mom is gone]]. Is it any wonder he doesn't act like a normal human being? Chances are that he acts so comically in an attempt to mask the pain he feels.
