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

Metacritic Score

  • 40

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    An animated twist on the Frankenstein story that never sparks to life.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times

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

    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...

  • I would rather watch Shark Tale than this BS

    Hey The Hub Network, guess what? Nobody likes this film and everybody likes Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs and Despicable Me. And we can see why. While those two shows have great animation, this show's animation is HORRIBLE! While those films have relatable and lovable characters, this film's characters have NO personality and they all look like Jamie Kennedy getting raped. While those films have witty jokes, this film's jokes are unfunny. Wait, what am I saying? This film doesn't even have any jokes. So please, if you haven't seen this show, DON'T, AND I MEAN DON'T WATCH IT !!!!!! It's more seizure inducing than that Bruce Willis movie "Disney's The Kid". So overall, this show is basically just rainbows and pieces of shit spining arond for lots of minutes.

  • Worst film ever

    1.0
    Tasteless, tuneless and unfunny is a good way of describing this film, not to mention a poorly planned plot to go alongside with it. By the end of this film, I wanted to claw my eyes out from the torturous boredom I'd suffered whilst watching it.
