a silly little movie. not the cartoon we grew up with. but it's designed for a new generation, and it's a fine children's movie. much more entertaining and appropriate than tarzan, in my humble opinion.this movie is not for the old at heart. it is very slapstick and very silly. being live action takes away some of the charm of the cartoon, and come on! brain gets one line :(
i love brain.
and they showed claw's face. i don't know if that's the choice i would have gone with, but rupert was very entertaining. and i mainly saw the movie for him. but he was actually my least favorite character. andy dick, the minion, penny, and the scientist chick were all an excellent supportign cast. andy dick stole much of the show, and the minion had the best joke in the whole thing.
the two guys i went with said this movie was gay.
but they're not 6. or 6 at heart. i realize it's not the best movie, or even the best kid's movie, but it's a fuckload better than the hunchback of notre fuicking dame.so i say the movie was average. some damn funny moments and very cute aside from that. and what can i say? i love a man who can say "go go gadget..." yeah, you know what i mean. 3 sporks.
