And now for some lighter fare!
I’m a sucker for animation- always have been. Still, there’s animation with story and jokes that are uninspired and, at best, fit for 90% of Dreamworks fart-fests. I’m not super keen on what unfolds throughout this whole trailer– the ugly American tourist joke is threadbare as Bruno’s underpanties– but the premise (an eccentric villain is stealing all the world’s landmarks) and the last 10 seconds of the spot for Despicable Me (and the title alone) look like something interesting. Of course, touting the director as the brains behind Ice Age 2 indicates it’s going to be boiled down to the lowest common denominator, but… yeah.
