Martian Child tells the tale of a widower in pretty much a by-the-numbers manner, but with several of the numbers missing. John Cusack is usually reliable, but he has neither a good script nor an able director with which to work here. The adopted son, portrayed convincingly by young Bobby Coleman, is likewise left without much decent material. Not recommended.
