Some Good and Some Blah,
This review is from: Jetsons: The Movie [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I was so excited when I found this old movie on my shelf. I remember liking it a lot back in the day when I was a kid. This time when I watched it though, I was surprised to see it drag in several places. George goes through the same comic routine of getting caught in the sprocket machine several times, and it takes forever for someone to come up with an idea of staying in the plant after working hours to figure out what's causing all the trouble.
Then again, the film has some definite highlights. It's fun seeing the wonders of the Jetsons' new home, and most of the songs are surprisingly good, except for the one or two awful rap songs. Rap was EVERYWHERE at this time. Most embarassing thing of the 90's if you ask me.
The movie starts getting a little environmentally preachy near the end, without much comic relief to lighten it up and make it easy to swallow.
Good for a rental if you have kids I guess, but the TV show had to be a lot better.
