    It looks like crap, but it has Dana Carvey. It can't be that bad if it has Dana Carvey, can it? [​IMG]

    Yeah, we all remember how memorable Clean Slate was, huh? Scott Weinberg, I KNOW you like this one. [​IMG]
    The only funny thing that came out of the trailer was Carvey doing the Scarface impersonation. [​IMG]

    HMM, maybe it's not for everyone. It's certainly not high comedy, but it put a smile on my face. Maybe the sight of Dana Carvey smirking just makes me laugh? I thought he looked just like Yertle the Turtle in that turtle outfit.

    Well, I think it looks cute. It's clear they're spoofing alot of film genres, so something good might come out of it.
    Any film with an intentional dig at Harry Potter couldn't be all bad.[​IMG]
    At any rate, aside from the Wayne's World stuff, the only good flick Carvey has starred in was Opportunity Knocks, which hardly anybody knows about.

    I'm almost certain that this is a Nickelodian movie. Certainly not a movie intended to please Carvey's typical audience.

    The turtle and Scarface characters look funny.

    I agree that Opportunity Knocks is the only good movie besides the Wayne's World movies that Dana Carvey has done.

    Even though I know I shouldn't be, I am actually looking forward to seeing this film. I'm even a little bit excited about it. Something about the trailer makes me laugh.

    Of course, I'll be seeing it with a five year old and a seven year old, so I have an excuse. And to ward off charges that I am rotting the minds of minors, I'll have you know that the seven year old is now not only a huge Star Wars fan (last weekend he asked "Can we come over to Aaron and Vanessa's movie theatre and watch Star Wars again?"), but also a fan of The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Errol Flynn. I'm trying to get him to watch The Sea Hawk, but black and white seems to be a bit of a stumbling block. Now that he's watched Robin Hood, though, he's excited to see more "swordfighting movies".

    Anyhow, the way Carvey says, "How did you know it was me?" is really, really funny.

    It mostly looks dreadful to me, but I will say the "turtle, turtle, turtle" bit cracks me up. Very funny stuff.

    Also the bit where he tells the guy to shutup (in so many words). Funny as well.

    But other parts look geared for a 5 year old, as well it may be. Hey, kids need to laugh too, so what do I care. But I'll need a decent review or two to get my butt in the theater.

    It is aimed at children, so the humor will be intentionally juvenile. They've been promoting the hell out of it on Nickelodeon and the like.

    I tend to doubt anything marketed at children anymore as being "juvenille" anymore. In the recent past we've had some fairly odd promotional tie-ins like BK and Lost World (who's bright idea was that?) and some others which fail me at the moment.

    I can't tell you how many kids were bawling at AtoC during the final arena hack-and-slash monster fest. PG? Oh yeah, whatever. The ratings board members get lots of special "gifts" when it comes close to rating time...
