Product Description

This hilarious animated twist on the classic monster movie is must-see family fun! Determined to prove he can create his own diabolical invention, a mad scientist's (John Cleese) nice-guy assistant, Igor (John Cusack), creates a female Franken-monster. But his creation, Eva (Molly Shannon), is sweet and sings show tunes! That is, until she falls into the clutches of Dr. Schadenfreude (Eddie Izzard) and his shape-shifting girlfriend (Jennifer Coolidge). Now it's up to Igor and his sidekicks (Steve Buscemi and Sean Hayes) to save Eva - and their country - from real evildoers, including sneaky Prince Malpert (Jay Leno)!

Amazon.com

In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the story revolves around the doctor who creates human life--not the hunchback assistant who helps him pull off the feat. In this computer-animated reinvention, John Cusack's Igor doesn't just take center stage; he stands in for an entire class of underappreciated workers. Igor knows more about science than Dr. Glickenstein (John Cleese), but in the gloomy town of Malaria, Igors simply follow orders. After reanimating grumpy roadkill bunny Scamper (Steve Buscemi), Igor decides he's ready for a bigger project. When his condescending master exits the picture, he seizes the opportunity and constructs a Bride of Frankenstein-type creature (voiced by Molly Shannon), a sweet-natured gal who looks like Picasso's version of Snow White writ large. When Igor commands her to be evil, she hears "Eva." The name sticks. Then when Igor, Scamper, and their not-so-bright buddy Brain (Sean Hayes) take her to the brainwashing clinic so they can enter her in the Evil Science Fair, Eva leaves thinking her mission is to act rather than to frighten children, so Igor convinces her the fair is a rehearsal for the musical Annie. By the conclusion of this inventive tale, creator and creature save Malaria from itself, freeing the Igors and Evas to enjoy the same rights as the scientists and the royals, like Jay Leno's King Malbert. As with Shrek and Monsters, Inc., Igor riffs on famous horror stories, while replacing scares with laughs, and the swing-era Louis Prima songs are an enjoyable touch. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I can see why some people hated this film, because if you bought the DVD to keep your young children occupied, you didn't get your money's worth. 'Igor' is really for old horror buffs, but it tried to play both sides of the field. It's too adult for kids and not dark enough for adults.

The animation is very good and looks more than a little inspired by 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. The voice work isn't bad, but the film doesn't have enough inspired characters to keep the momentum going. Most of the comic relief comes from an immortal rabbit who wants to die!

Overall I think if you like old horror films and animated films you'll like 'Igor', but it will not keep the little ones interested. The DVD has an excellent transfer, but not a lot of extras. There is an alternate beginning that is interesting.

I have seen most of the computer generated animated movies. The Pixar ones, naturally, are the best in terms of script quality and overall likability for all ages. The non-Pixar ones are usually pretty good but not up to that quality (Shrek, Over the Hedge, Madagascar, etc.), but some are not good at all in my opinion such as Madagascar 2 and Happy Feet to name a few. It all depends on what you want out of an animated movie. I personaly look for an engaging plot and most of all the funny one-line quips that are a staple of this genre. The main thing for me with this movie was its originality. The plot is really unique and there were tons of funny one-liners that I chuckled at throughout. My kids 7 & 9 also were laughing and we watched it twice. I had never even heard of this movie and just picked it off the shelf at Blockbuster, and I am really glad I did. I would say this is one of the best non-Pixar animated movies I've seen.

All Igor(voiced by John Cusack) ever wanted was to be an evil scientist, unfortunately in the kingdom of Malaria(where our tale takes place) that big ole' hunch on his back could only mean one thing, he would always be just an Igor.(If he didn't get recycled for parts first!)

One day Igor gets the chance to prove be can really be an evil scientist when his master Dr. Glickenstein(John Cleese) becomes the victim of his own experiment and Igor decides to take his only chance to fulfill his dreams of winning the evil science fair.

Igor turns to his only two friends to help him, a Brain who named himself Brian on accident(Sean Hayes) and Scamper(Steve Buscemi) who Igor accidentally made immortal and constantly tries to commit suicide. Their plan comes into motion when Igor remembers his blueprints to create life into a purely evil monster, something no evil scientist has ever done in the entire history of Malaria!

Only their plan goes awry when Igor forgets to activate their new creations evil bone, and Eva(Molly Shannon) instead becomes overly kind and instead of destroying cities or killing blind orphans dreams of becoming an actress.

Maybe an homage to Tim Burton, definitely a re-telling of Frankenstein but Igor still carries a completely fresh and poignant look at a beloved genre in the film industry; horror.

Igor is creative, witty and completely different from any animated film that I for one have seen in a very long time. The humor is sarcastic, and a little sardonic and honestly it probably flies right over 80 percent of it's viewers heads.

Maybe I'm biased seeing as how I love pretty much everything Cusak touches, but I for one wouldn't mind adding this one to my dvd collection.

One of my favorite movies. Love this! So much fun, great dialog. Who is an evil genius vs just a genius, and can you break out of the mold and expectations society places on you to be who and what you want to be. And what you can accomplish with friends on your side

Iyour kids will love it, it is odd but cute

love movies, and believe that you should at least watch a movie once, to at least say that you have seen it, you really can’t knock a movie if you haven’t seen it. I like this movie enough I added it my collection to watch it again. I only do that with films I like

My 10 year old daughter still loves watching this movie since it came out. Just purchased for my 3 year old grand-daughter and she loves it, too. I like watching the animated children's movies and this one doesn't get boring even when they want to watch it over and over and over and over again! ;)

My son adores Igor. I was rather bored, but this is a movie meant for kids. Unlike other kids animated movies, I couldn't really get into it much, but giving it 5 Stars because my son really likes it.

I like John Cusack in most of his movies, so we watched this. I truly get sick of the same stuff. This was a little different. We do movie nights every chance we get because we are so busy. This was a really good choice. I laughed really hard. You will like it.
