Mars Needs Moms on DVD August 9th

I happened to watch Mars Needs Moms in the theater and my whole family fell in love with this movie. One of my favorite parts is when the martians are looking for more moms to have on their planet to raise the little ones because it is clear that the martians know a good mom when they see one. As much as I could go on and on about the various parts I LOVE in this movie, I will keep it secret so that you can enjoy this movie for yourself but please come back and leave a comment telling me what part you liked the best if you purchase this awesome family movie!

Seth Green and Joan Cusack are the best in this movie, of course it is just their voice. Seth plays the little boy and Joan is his “don’t’ put up with anything” Mom. I mean these two play their voice characters so well!  If I had to sum up this movie in words I would say:

Mars Needs Moms is an incredible, funny, heart warming family friendly movie that every parent must see! Mars Needs Moms truly shares the power of the love between a mother and child.

There isn’t much more than that to say, and when I received the home DVD combo pack for my family to review I was blown away by the special features. Of course I need to get a Blu-Ray player so that I can actually watch the extras only included on the Blu-Ray version. For now I watched the special features on the DVD which are:

  • Martian 101 – Speaking Martian with lessons from an expert.
  • Fun with Seth – Featurette showcasing the on-set antics of Seth Green and Dan Fogler.

It was hilarious watching my kids try to speak Martian, seriously! I think every kid needs to see that special feature that is included on the DVD version of Mars Needs Moms! The fun with Seth was great too, it is so weird to watch them with the dots on their faces as two grown men goof around! It would be fun to experience being an animated part of this movie! I would have loved a place where we could go and goof around then see what we look like on screen.

I give this movie TWO thumbs up and if I had more thumbs I would give Mars Needs Moms all of the thumbs up I had!

Barbies Are So Expensive

My daughter wants some new baby dolls, doll clothes and new Barbie items but the problem is; Barbies are so gosh darn expensive! I mean seriously, the clothing for a Barbie doll costs almost as much as an outfit for me. I remember when I was a teen that I could find Barbie clothes for around $1 or maybe when my daughter was younger, not sure exactly when but I swear there was a time.

$29.99 at Amazon.com

I really want to get my daughter some new Barbie’s as well as clothing and maybe even a Barbie house but in all reality I won’t go broke doing it! I wonder if second hand stores around here carry some Barbie items? I know when I was younger I had a huge collection of Barbies and I am pretty sure my parents didn’t buy all of them for me because I recall many were in rough shape but my sister and I loved playing with them {and cutting their hair}.

I know if I could find a fabulous deal on Barbie items I would take it right up because my sons will actually play Barbies with my daughter so if I can get more Ken dolls along with some awesome Barbie accessories such as another Barbie corvette, then these kids would have something to do that I could totally see myself enjoying with them {minus cutting Barbies’ hair}.

We all have those type of days and weeks sometimes and some of the most famous people have decided to share their tips on relieving stress:

Jennie Garth

“As far as maintaining balance in my life, I just take it one day at a time. And I make a lot of lists.”

 

 

 

 

Brooke Shields

“When I start to look outside myself and start to compare myself to other people, I start to weaken a little bit. It’s a very juvenile way of doing things, that sort of comparison. If I begin doing that, I have to pull myself back and focus on everything I have that’s so wonderful.”

 

 

 

Goldie Hawn

“My father used to tell me, ‘Goldie, when you feel too big for your britches, just go stand in front of that big ocean and feel how small you are.’ He was right.”

 

 

 

And probably the most cutest advice of all …

 

Madonna

“Actually, I scream a lot … I guess sometimes I handle things well, sometimes I don’t.”
