Lab assistant Igor (John Cusack) dreams of becoming a mad scientist like his master, Dr. Glickenstein. When the doctor runs afoul of his own invention, Igor seizes the chance. With the help of his friends Scamper (Steve Buscemi) and Brain (Sean Hayes), Igor plans to win the kingdom's annual science fair by building the most-evil monster ever.

    In style and tone, Igor seems more like a short from the adult-oriented "Spike & Mike's Festival of Animation." show more

    If Mel Brooks were to team up with Tim Burton, the result might be something like the loony and colorfully tantalizing animated film Igor. show more

    Sparky voice performances and heart make up for this family film's theft of Tim Burton's sensibility. show more

    I thought that some of the dialogue was a bit racy (one of the girls calls her boyfriend "daddy" --- yikes) and that some of the characters were unnecessarily weird (an invisible man who works without pants on?! wtf?!), but it was an original concept. I think it's VERY politically incorrect to have blind orphans sing "I Can See Clearly Now" at the end of the movie. That's BOUND to offend someone!!
