* 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 is supposed to be signs he misses 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}}.

* 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.

* 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.

* SoBaditsHorrible: Might classify as this due to bland and unlikeable characters, unintentionally horrifying animation, a concept that would only work in a B-Movie (or in a work parodying such a concept), more UnfortunateImplications than you can shake a stick at, and the fact that this movie caused the studio that made it to close down due to it bombing at the box-office.

* 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 (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.

** Milo himself deserves a mention for being an UnintentionallyUnsympathetic SpoiledBrat who was highly inconsiderate and unreasonable at the beginning of the film.
