As the son of the late Larry Buchanan, who created the original Mars Needs Women in 1967 (from which I have to believe the makers of Mars Needs Moms borrowed heavily - without credit I might ad), I have always found it funny that people even bothered to criticize a movie that cost just $20,000 and took just 6 days to shoot. Also funny; the film still airs on late night TV around the world and has grown to cult status (it's been translated into 36 languages, including Yiddish). So there's some vindication here in terms of a very expensive film not being able to hide behind excuses like not having enough resources. It makes Mars Needs Women look pretty good by comparison. How many films could my father have made with $150,000,000? Yikes!Long live Larry Buchanan.
A proud son,
