Igor 2008

Igor

Critics Consensus

With an animation style that apes Tim Burton, and a slew of cultural references that aren't clear enough to reach the crowds, Igor's patched together antics make it hard to see who the film is trying to please.

Movie Info

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. The problem is that Eve (Molly Shannon), as the monster is called, is sweeter than sugar and would rather be an actress.

Audience Reviews for Igor

  • Oct 11, 2014
    An eccentric take on the character form the Frankenstein series, Igor is imaginative and a bit of fun. After his mad scientist dies, Igor attempts to become a scientist himself by entering the annual Evil Science Fair. John Cusack, Molly Shannon, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, and Jay Leno lead the cast and give fairly good performances. However, the character designs are bizarre and the plot is formulaic. The concept behind the story, a city dedicated to being mad scientists and Igors, is pretty interesting but the film never fully commits to it; opting instead for a cliched message about choosing to be good. Igor is mildly entertaining and delivers some laughs, but it's completely forgettable.

    Kids & Family? Yes. Comedy? Nope. I didn't it funny at all. But was not boring either.

    Had it's moments... Really liked Steve B.'s bunny character. Other then that, not much to it.

    A real bore. You should congratulate yourself if you make it to the end, the movie certainly won't.
