    This is what "Nightmare" fans have been waiting fifteen years for.

    Much of it will probably go right over the heads of kids who aren't familiar with classic movies or the naughtiness of Eddie Izzard.

    While the stitches holding together the plot are clearly visible, Igor breathes some enjoyable life into its stolen grab-bag of gimmicks.
  4. With an uneven and overstuffed script you appreciate the corner-of-the-mouth comments as delivered by Steve Buscemi.

    If Mel Brooks were to team up with Tim Burton, the result might be something like the loony and colorfully tantalizing animated film Igor.

    Although the visuals tantalize and the actors providing the voices add a lot of sass, the result is only so-so.

    Molly Shannon is dementedly charming as Eva.
  8. In style and tone, Igor seems more like a short from the adult-oriented "Spike & Mike's Festival of Animation."
  9. Sparky voice performances and heart make up for this family film's theft of Tim Burton's sensibility.

    The visuals are a kick; the groan-inducing dialogue isn't.

    Though it has clever moments, it doesn't come close to the polished animation, wit and originality of the big green guy (Shrek).
  12. Too bad Igor didn't jolt the film to life with his Frankenstein shenanigans.
  13. An animated twist on the Frankenstein story that never sparks to life.

    You can't blame John Cusack for jumping at the chance to play Igor.

    Pixar this isn't, but neither is it "Mary Shelley's Veggie Tales." If only.

    One of those fever-pitched computer-generated whizbangs in which every character spits out lines like a caffeinated Catskills comic.

    With its belabored gags, misfired pop-culture references and garish visuals crammed together like so many disjointed body parts, this manic kidpic cranks up the annoy-o-meter early on and rarely lets up.
  18. One of those non-stop jabbering cartoons in which most of the lines sound like the spontaneous riffs from a couple of comics sitting around a diner.

    Worth to watch. But not smart enough to be an animated movie on this era.

All of it was ofA movie with slim to none comedy and a pathetic and much-spoofed storyline. The animation, writing, plot, voice acting. All of it was of either median or sub-par quality. I could not find one joke or reference funny. In fact, I could not remember one person in the theatre laughing and leaving the theatre everyone was silent and unaffected. Neither Pixar nor even Dreamworks could ever stoop this low. Full Review »
