Igor - (27% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes)
In a land of mad scientists and diabolical inventions, what do you do when you’re born with a hunch on your back? You become an Igor. A hilarious twist on the classic monster movie, Igor tells the story of one Igor who's sick of being a lowly lab assistant with a Yes Master's degree and dreams of becoming a scientist. When his cruel master kicks the bucket a week before the annual Evil Science Fair, Igor finally gets his chance.
If you need me to save you the time from clicking the link, critics seem to agree it's a grab bag of mixed ideas that cribs heavily from animated Tim Burton fair but with far less successful results.
Lakeview Terrace - (33% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes)
Do you hate interracial relationships? Well so does Samuel L. Jackson! When ultra white neighbor, Patrick Wilson, moves next door with his mega chocolatey delicious wife, Kerry Washington, Samuel Jackson gets mad. He performs a service during his time off as a LAPD officer by patrolling his neighborhood, but things quickly turn intrusive when Jackson won't leave the young couple alone. Critics seem to agree as a thriller it's relatively watchable, however it tries too hard to be a social commentary, and when it tries...it fails.
My Best Friend's Girl - (0% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) Not Previewed for Critics
Not showing your movie to critics means either you don't care, because you don't need good reviews to sell your picture, OR the studio knows they have a hunk of shit on their plate and they want you to try it out of curiousity.
A master at seducing – and offending – women, Tank (Dane Cook) is a professional My Best Friend's Girl. When guys get dumped, they hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives – an experience so horrible it sends them running gratefully back to their beaus. So when Tank’s best friend, Dustin (Jason Biggs), is dumped by his new girlfriend (Kate Hudson), Tank naturally offers to help out…and ends up meeting the challenge of a lifetime. Smart, beautiful and headstrong, Alexis is the first girl who knows how to call his bluff, and Tank soon finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dustin and his love for his best friend’s girl. If you still have any faith in Dane Cook, you'll see it. Which means no one will be seeing this thing, look for in on DVD within a month.
