The writer should have entitled it "the space between my ears." It is full of illogical and over-the top goofs. It'll be so easy in 16 years from next year to steal cars, for cars not to have changed, hospital beds to be the same, etc. It's easy spotting them that you'll maybe have fun doing that.

This movie was kinda disappointing. It wasn't nearly as good as I hoped/expected it would be.

What lengths would you go to for love? For Gardner, he risks his life to go to Earth to find Tulsa, as well as his father. When it becomes clear that his body cannot live on Earth, since he was born on Mars, his newly found father and Tulsa both have hard decisions to face to save Gardner's life.

Good play by the actors but a lot of unbelievable scenes like having continuous video connection between Mars and Earth , it may take a while before such images reach earth or Mars.

A sweet fantasy, that's mainly a love story between a youth born on Mars and an earthborn young woman who has been carelessly shuffled from foster home to foster home. Film's message: the space between us may be vast, but love can draw us closer.

A must see this summer! A film that incorporates drama, love and the future in an unlikely setting...Mars and then Earth. And despite a very different premise, it tells the age old story of how the heart wants what the heart wants, whether you are born on Mars or Earth. Carve out an evening and rent this movie from the library. NF

Overall, I enjoyed the movie. There were definitely some eye rolling points as the science of some of the things didn't really sit well with me. The story itself is a good one, and I'd definitely recommend people watch it. Forbidden love is almost always entertaining. Changing the ending to a more scientifically sound message would have made the movie a 4, possibly 5 star movie.

Felt like the sort of movie you can watch while you do the dishes. You don't need to be fully engaged to stay with the plot.

Fun for sci-fi fans. Wesley Crusher, um I mean Gardner, was born on Mars and mother dies moments later. Wanting to become a "Real Boy" just like Pinocchio, he goes in search of his father (I am your father.) His best friend, a combination of C3PO and a couple other famous robots, keeps ratting him out. He falls in love with a girl he meets on the internet (per half the Hallmark Movies in the last 10 years). Many, many other elements pulled from mostly sci-fi gems of the last 40 years. Sweet, funny in places, the perfect popcorn and chat movie. (But how did the BMW turn into a huge 4-door pickup??)

Excellent! Although it is scientifically inaccurate. It takes awhile for transmissions to reach Earth from Mars.
