We went and saw Igor this afternoon and it was so much fun.
In a world named Malaria where it storms every day, the only thing to do is to be an evil scientist. Or an evil scientist’s Igor.
Except one Igor (John Cusack) who wants to be an evil scientist too.
Igor has a couple of sidekicks/friends/inventions named Scamper (Steve Buscemi) and Brain (Sean Hayes). His scientist boss is Dr. Glickenstien (John Cleese) and their nemesis is Dr. Schadenfreude – yep, Schadenfreude – (Eddie Izzard).
Shades of Young Frankenstein were seen when the Monster goes to the orphanage for blind children and then is captivated by paper flowers.
One of the best lines: “I’ll be an environmentalist, but I’ll fly private when necessary.”
