Romantic Drama - Despite the title, this is not a science fiction film, and though a child is at the center of the film, this is a drama aimed more toward adults. Fans of John Cusack will likely enjoy this the best.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Martian Child offers no surprises, not even little ones. One could argue that its heart is in the right place, but that's about the only thing it gets right.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie leaves no heartstring untugged. It even has a beloved old dog, and you know what happens to beloved old dogs in movies like this. Or if you don't, I don't have the heart to tell you.

USA Today Full Review
Good If you can get past the occasional treacle, Martian Child, based on a short story by David Gerrold, works as a gently moving and offbeat tale about a boy who doesn't fit in and the transformative power of love between parent and child.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 41 moviegoers:For some reason (possibly the title) this movie didn't draw much of a crowd so we weren't able to collect very many reviews. Fortunately, this small number of reviews clearly shows that "MARTIAN CHILD" IS A WONDERFUL MOVIE THAT RECEIVED EXTREMELY HIGH REVIEWS FROM VIRTUALLY EVERYONE! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! "Martian Child" is a great movie for families with older children. DO NOT MISS IT!

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
David Gordon (John Cusack), a recently widowed science fiction writer, considers adopting Dennis (Bobby Coleman), a young orphaned boy who claims to be from Mars. Ignoring some sage advice about the perils of parenthood from his sister Liz (Joan Cusack) and the qualms of children's group home director Sophie (Sophie Okonedo), David decides he wants to be a father to the odd youngster who keeps insisting he is an alien. Even with the support of his friend, Harlee (Amanda Peet), who David finds himself increasingly attracted to, the aspiring dad soon finds himself in way over his head. 

For starters, David's in danger of missing his next publishing deadline, and that has his nervous agent, Jeff (Oliver Platt), worried. And then there is the social worker, Lefkowitz (Richard Schiff), and his review board who also have some serious doubts about David's suitability as a dad.

In the midst of all this, young Dennis exhibits some pretty strange behavior and adamantly insists that he does indeed come from the red planet. A series of inexplicable events ultimately leads David to wonder whether the boy's claims are indeed based on fantasy. But whatever the true origins of this remarkable little boy, David gradually finds himself growing more attached to him and experiencing the transformational power of parental love.
