"Mars Needs Moms" is about a nine-year-old boy who finds out how much he needs his mom after she's nabbed by Martians to steal her "mom-ness" for their own young.

The animated movie, rated PG, starring Seth Green as nine-year-old Milo and Joan Cusack as his mom opens at theaters this Friday, including Marbles' IMAX Theatre which will feature the 3D version. It's brought to you by the same people behind "Disney's A Christmas Carol" and "The Polar Express." Click here for details.

And we've got four pairs of tickets that you can use to see this film or any feature or documentary film at the IMAX Theatre through Sept. 30.

What do you need to do to enter the contest? One or both of the following:

1. Follow WRALmoms on Twitter and tweet about this contest.

2. Answer the following question in the comments: What "mom-ness" might Martians want from you? Maybe kindness, ability to cook, kiss boo boos, read stories, make rules, fill in the blank ....

This contest ends at noon March 10. One winner will be picked at random from all entries. The winners' user names will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. March 10 and an email will be sent to the winners. The winners must respond by noon March 12  or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

Congratulations to our winners: loribmorrison, ghudnall83 and hazeyc, along with shortc8ke on Twitter.

    Even though my oldest son said it would be for my "great angry face", I think it would be more for my multitasking abilities to get everything done on time.

    Martians would appreciate our down to "earthiness", the ability to multi-task, stay flexible and remember the most important things.
