Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Low key, low budget and low energy, this animated space odyssey from the writer and director Geoff Marslett accompanies three mismatched astronauts to the red planet and the search for new life forms."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Deserves a fate better than collecting dust, especially when its potential cult status is written all over it from frame one."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"Imaginative, visually stylish and refreshingly character-driven albeit somewhat contrived. It could have been much more brilliant and compelling had it taken more risks by increasing its satirical bite."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"A memorably odd, mellow affair."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice

‑ John Gholson, Cinematical
"Mixing mumblecore with science fiction is original, but the resulting film demands more than it delivers"
‑ Mark R. Leeper, Mark Leeper's Reviews
"The United States's first couple being a cigar-smoking cowboy and his intellectually challenged wife is one anachronism we could all live without."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
