AWAKE, EARTHLINGS! It’s later than you think. Don’t miss the hilarious frenzy as Tim Burton directs – and Mars Attacks! SEE! Stars that shine across the galaxy. Jack Nicholson (in a dual role), Glenn close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito and a dozen more! SHRIEK! At mean, green ivaders armed with insta-fry ray guns, endowed with slimy, humongous brains – and enlivened with state-of-the-art special effects. GASP! As the U.S. legislature is overwhelmed. (Don’t fear, we still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for us.) THRILL! As Earth fights back with an unexpected weapon. Take that, Martians!

For a younger audience, they wouldn't recognize all of the actors and not quite get all of the humor, but they will love it just the same!
Along with "Edward Scissor Hands", I think this is one of Tim Burton's best movies.
Lots of big time stars in here, at least big stars for their day. I watched this with my 14 year old son and he really didn't recognize the majority of them and it made me feel old.... Anyway, it's an excellent and just fun movie really.
I would rate this movie 5 stars but I had to take off a star for the big gash in the case, see attached picture, not sure what happened there as I didn't do it. The cut was actually under the clear shrink wrapping over the whole blu-ray and they had a blank white rectangular sticker over top of it on the wrapping. It didn't cut through the case thankfully, but it did cut the insert and regular plastic cover and it just looks unsightly.
I've used a clip of Jack Nicholson pleading, "Why Can't We All Just Get Along?", in a number of presentations.
Potential viewers who find themselves looking for anything profoundly intellectual in Mars Attacks! should immediately reseal the package and seek whatever financial remuneration is most readily available from the purchase or rental. If you are looking for anything other than an opportunity for 1) a goodly number of righteously earned laughs, 2) visual insanity, 3) jabs at the simplistic and short-sighted approaches our society uses to solve it's problems, and 4) well-buttered, full-of-cholesterol, artery clogging popcorn, then save yourself the pain and read some Tolstoy. There's nothing here for you.
On the other hand, if you are up for absurd fun, visual imagination on parade, a laundry list of stars willing to offer up themselves and pop-culture to the ray-guns of balloon-headed aliens, then you are in for a treat.
On a final note, perhaps the movie, after all, does offer some intellectual insight: Ultimately its the most simple - and human - traits that serve to protect us.
