** The message is that people are meant to be raised by a mother and a father. Aside from the UnfortunateImplications of such a blanket statement ([[http://www.somethingawful.com/current-movie-reviews/battle-los-angeles/2/ as pointed out]] by Website/SomethingAwful [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Z4oPrrxnY#t=11m2s and]] WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter, among others), Milo's mother is the only parent shown for almost the entire movie. His father seems to show up at the beginning and end only to drive the moral home and dispel the notion that Milo is raised by a single parent.

* TheWoobie: Gribble may be a scrappy to most viewers, but he's still arguably the most sympathetic character in the whole film. 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 knowing 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.

* {{Anvilicious}}: There is just nothing subtle about this movie, no wonder WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter said that Milo [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Z4oPrrxnY#t=01m50s "is not a character, he is a walking plot device"]] who is just there to force the message in.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: While the MotionCapture itself dips pretty deep into UncannyValley, the overall visuals are far more beautiful.

* HilariousInHindsight: Some of the aspects of Martian culture like how the males are discarded extremely similar to Gazorpazorp from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' which is most likely a coincidence considering how the actual episode is intended to parody ''Film/{{Zardoz}}

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: The movie's hilarious title is merely the tip of the iceberg, as it is actually much darker than one would be led to assume as it turns out the mothers in question are not just kidnapped, but ''vaporized'' for the sake of obtaining their knowledge in raising children; further reinforced by its rather depressing implications, as seen below. The notoriously offputting animation does nothing to help matters.
