The advanced advertising really hooked me. I thought it was a pure Jack Black vehicle. Might’ve been, but not so much. I didn’t even realize who the other voices were and if I had, I would’ve thought more of it. Too bad the credits have to run to truly appreciate the film.
If I was more puerile, less child-like and more childish? Maybe it would be better. Or if, as many people assume, I was chemically enhanced (stoned), maybe then it would’ve been funnier. A lot funnier and more poignant, too.
The message? Let’s face it, that’s my message, too.
Or, as some would say, “Just click your heels together three times.”
