This hilarious adventure begins when an ambitious TV reporter, Tim O'Hara (Jeff Daniels), stumbles upon a Martian (Christopher Lloyd) who has just crashed on Earth! Thinking this is the story of the Millennium, Tim schemes to expose the Martian -- who has taken human form as "Uncle Martin." When Tim's efforts are constantly foiled by Uncle Martin's crazy antics, he decides to help the resourceful alien return home. With the government hot on their trail and a spaceship in pieces, can they blast Uncle Martin off in time?

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that My Favorite Martian has some crude, vulgar references (though most of them are euphemisms), as well as potty humor and cartoonish violence. Also some non-alcoholic intoxication.
