Pootie Tang works, in part, because it doesn't. Which is to say the movie's special success is inextricable from the moments where it blatantly fails. The movie exerts a beguiling charm that can only be explained as the je ne sais quoi of sa da tay.
Astro Boy was, all in all, a sweet movie. This movie, though not as wonderful, reminds me of the Iron Giant. Loss, friendship, family, good vs evil and what makes us human are all explored as we follow Astro's journey to \"self\". Both tender and funny moments bookend the adventurous action scenes. This movie will leave you with a good feeling and is worth seeing.\n\nSPOILER: May not be so good for younger kids because of the subject of death, as well as war-like violence.
Buoyed by infectious high spirits and self-deprecating humour, the film works in strange and perhaps unintentional ways, thanks largely to the sustained energy of the lead actors, and writers Ernest Cline and Adam F. Goldberg.
its not for kids,and if you like to laugh,then here you go.slightly romantic comedy,relationship stuff but not mushy smoochy stuff. I watched it a few times on dvd ,got the blu-ray soon after.quality and picture are perfect.
Couples is so formulaic, so fake and relentlessly bland, it's hard to care if any of these pairings get a divorce, drown or are eaten by sharks. It has neither the ring of truth nor the fun of fantasy.
I love this movie. Not in a very long time have I seen a movie that has family \/ life values like the good ole B&W films of the 40' to 60's . Not that it lacks in some NOT so old fashion sceens that are gut busters. However this movie sends a clear message through some very funny stuff . Relationships that are still worth everything even though they seem destroyed, can be and should be put back together. Laughing my guts out and thinking OH NO, that's what's going on in my marrage in other parts , makes this movie great. Thanks for the fast shipping Walmart.
