What's it about

Reviewed by LOKI

This goes down in my books as my favorite movie of all time. Why? Well, my character plays a pretty big role in this flick. But other than that, I'd have to say it's my favorite film for other - many other - reasons. It was a history making film, sporting ground-breaking work in computer generated special effects headed up by George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic (ILM). Never before had a human been portrayed as a live-action character who followed the laws of animated cartoon physics so extensively in a motion picture: cartoon laws dictated first by Tex Avery of Warner Bros. fame. A signature cartoon of Avery's even makes a cameo appearance in the film, establishing the foundation of the production's inspiration: Red Hot Riding Hood.

The film also brings back to the spotlight those wonderful Berkley Busby musicals of the Golden Hollywood era. (You can still catch them on AMC, TCM, and TNT cable television channels.) We see that not only can Jim Carrey dance, he can SING. From a super-fueled Jitterbug Jive to a hot Latin Rythmn, this film manages to make song and dance musicals cool again - if only for a short moment in time.

But, let's not forget the sweetest guy on the planet, Stanley Ipkiss, and his ever faithful and adorable Jack Russell terrier, Milo. If it weren't for these guys, we wouldn't have characters we could feel empathy for, we wouldn't have the film's funniest moments, we wouldn't have a movie, and we wouldn't have anybody to find those keys!

I just love this movie. And I'm just gonna' have to give it a 10.

Stanley Ipkiss is not the man he used to be.
