Rating:
PG
Igor is a 2008 animated comedy written by Chris McKenna. King Malbert (Jay Leno), the overlord of Malaria, rules his kingdom using intimidation and fear tactics. His henchmen are evil scientists, who create weapons for him with the help of hump-backed citizens of Malaria called Igors. While working with Doctor Glickenstein (John Cleese), one Igor (John Cusack) decides that he is no longer happy being a mere assistant. Hoping that he can one day become an evil scientist, Igor makes sinister inventions, including a zombie rabbit called Scamper (Steve Buscemi) and Brian (Sean Hayes), a dimwitted brain. When his master unexpectedly dies, Igor seizes the opportunity to secretly enter the Evil Science Fair in his place. He begins to create his most diabolical invention yet, a reanimated monster made from human body parts that Igor names Eva (Molly Shannon). But Igor's plan to win the science fair go awry when Eva's "evil bone" does not activate, causing Eva to be an innocent creature with no desire to be bad. As Igor grows closer to Eva, he reevaluates his own evil ways and fights back against the dark forces that are determined to keep the Malarians from happy lives.moreless

    Variety Justin Chang

    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...
