“ So instead of fun, the movie dishes up a heaping helping of boredom.
“ It was a time when a doctor specializing in space medicine was known first and foremost as a "stunning brunette".
“ The only one of Buchanan's AIP-TV flicks that isn't a remake of an earlier movie, it has all the ingredients of a Z-grade mess: start with former Disney standby Tommy Kirk as the bland leader of a Martian expedition, add Batgirl Yvonne Craig as a scientist who (for some strange reason) falls in love with our favorite Matian, sprinkle in some aggressively-dull footage of a local (Dallas) football game, stir-in enough double-entendres and leering by the male cast to make you gouge your eyes out, and you've got...
“ He in turn bespeaks the confusion of his soul, an embodiment of the whole piece, rightly an olla podrida of mental acuity and the most conspicuous of all jigs; that quasi-caromed, state of palpitate we mortals call seduction.
“ Boring .
“ Marjorie Bolen turned out to be a stunning brunette, who found it hard to hide her charm behind her horn-rimmed spectacles.
“ Mars Needs Women is aggressively unwatchable.
“ One of those women happen to be Yvonne "Bat Girl" Craig, which is kind of fun, but overall this is a terrible movie that is only worth watching for so-bad-it's-good camp value, which did entertain me a fair amount.
“"For the next few minutes, we get to watch exciting stock footage of the X-15 and fighter jets trying to intercept the Martian craft, while Colonel Bob and his aide stare blankly at a loudspeaker explaining all the action.
“ Ed Woodisms notwithstanding, this is about the worst movie I've ever seen - a horrible, contrived plot...
“ Don't waste your time--you've been warned!
“ Filled with non-acting, bad costumes, and awful writing courtesy of auteur Larry Buchanan, the film also utilises tremendous amounts of (dull) stock footage.
“ What Mars really needs is something more exciting than this.
“ I know, because I was there in the 60s and I remember the pace of life was oh so much slower than it is today.
“ And even then I may be giving it too much credit as the entire movie was rather boring from start-to-finish.
“ Loses camp points for being so slow and boring.
“ Mars Needs Women, bad as it is, has the good fortune in having a cast that knows how bad it is and plays it for all its worth for some unexpected laughs.
“ After 20 minutes of eye rolling, I was mouth exercising (through yawns) as I struggled to get into the spirit of it all.
“ The whole sequence of the two Martians at the hotel, acquiring a press badge and so forth, was actually engaging and not really unintentionally funny.
“ That's because it's just plain DULL and pointless.
“ Dull as dishwater sci-fi movie about "martians" stealing women for breeding purposes is slower than a dead hamster in winter.
“ I was wrong it was just boring and could not be saved even by Bat girl.
“ It's got some fine cheesy moments (And Yvonne Craig is about as sexy as they come), but overall, more of a yawn than a laugh riot.
