IGOR cover image
Kids enjoyed it, particularly the younger ones in this age group. "Good because it is funny." Many of our youth jurors had already seen the movie but were interested in viewing it again. They thought their friends would enjoy it as well. "Our friends would love this because it's so funny." "Lots of our friends have already seen this movie but they would probably like watching it again." They easily understood the storyline. "There are different classes of people - Igors, evil scientists and one invisible man. The Igors are not treated well." "It's a story about a hunchback named Igor who really does to want to be an Igor (which is a class of people), he wants to be an evil scientist. He makes an unusual monster. He has two friends. One is a squirrel/rabbit who wears a cool red helmet and can't die. His other friend is a brain in a jar." "Igor, Eva, Brain and Scamper are the main characters. The three friends are kind of like me and my two friends - we hang out together all the time, love to laugh and crack up. Eva reminds us of the Wall-e movie." Favorite part: "Life with no lying; honesty is the best." "If you are nice, the sun will shine on everyone." "We all liked it and thought it was very funny."
Very enjoyable, good message about "bad is good and good is bad!" Holds your interest from start to finish. It is reminiscent of stories such as Cinderella and Hunchback of Notre Dame. Very suitable for the target age group. Some of the graphics and themes are probably too much for younger viewers. The humor is quick, witty and engaging, with many one liners. Production quality is excellent. The good vs. evil theme is often used but Eva offers a new spin on encouraging others to move away from evil. There is also a nice element of friendship, both old and new. There are some violent moments such as when Dr. Glickenstein gets crushed but it is not graphic.
This hilarious animated twist on the classic monster movie is must-see family fun! Determined to prove he can create his own diabolical invention, a mad scientist's (John Cleese) nice-guy assistant, Igor (John Cusack), creates a female Franken-monster. But his creation, Eva (Molly Shannon), is sweet and sings show tunes! That is, until she falls into the clutches of Dr. Schadenfreude (Eddie Izzard) and his shape-shifting girlfriend (Jennifer Coolidge). Now it's up to Igor and his sidekicks (Steve Buscemi and Sean Hayes) to save Eva - and their country - from real evildoers, including sneaky Prince Malpert (Jay Leno)!
