IGOR (2008) GO!, 5.30PM, PG, AN­I­MA­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

This freaky an­i­mated com­edy tries to in­ject the trade­mark hu­mour of Shrek into the mind of Tim Bur­ton – imag­ine CorpseBride with harder edges and you’ll have some idea of what to ex­pect from this dys­func­tional fam­ily film. In the gloomy realm of Malaria, lowly hunch­back Igor (voiced by John Cu­sack) longs to be an evil sci­en­tist. Un­for­tu­nately, his se­cretly cre­ated she-mon­ster (Molly Shan­non) turns out to be far from evil. And things turn even uglier when the di­abol­i­cal Dr Schaden­freude (Ed­die Iz­zard) re­solves to pass her off as his own in­ven­tion. Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Will&Grace’s Sean Hayes and Jennifer Coolidge also lend their lar­ynxes to the kooky tale. ★★★
