In the Kingdom of Malaria evil is good business. Each year the kingdom hosts an Evil Science Fair showcasing the diabolical Evil Inventions that Malaria’s thirteen evil scientists have spent the year creating. King Malbert, Malaria’s leader, then kindly informs the rest of the world that the winning Evil Invention will be unleashed on them unless they cough up an exorbitant amount of money. So the world pays and Malaria prospers. But it wasn’t always this way.
Animated Comedy - This is an animated feature aimed at a family audience, but some
parents of young children may find the overall dark sense of humor
inappropriate. This is a film more in line with The Nightmare
Before Christmas than Shrek.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 32 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Two-thirds of the children loved "Igor." Unfortunately, and very unusual, is that a third rated it only fair. Usually
children will rate kids movies very high, so these low reviews are disappointing. TEENS:The two teens loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:These three reviews aren't very good. They indicate, at best, an average to below average movie.
ADULTS:Very mixed reviews from both males and females. Only a quarter of the guys enjoyed "Igor." Nearly half of the women truly enjoyed it. The remaining reviews are mediocre to terrible. This isn't a movie that I would recommend, especially since the children's reviews were disappointing.
In a land of mad scientists and diabolical inventions, what do you do when you're born with a hunch on your back?
You become an Igor.
The story of one Igor who's sick of being a lowly lab assistant with a Yes Masters' degree and dreams of becoming a scientist. When his cruel master kicks the bucket a week before the annual Evil Science Fair, Igor finally gets his chance.
With the help of two of his experimental creations - Brain, a brain in a jar who's a little light on brains, and Scamper, a cynical bunny brought back from being road kill, Igor embarks on building the most evil invention of all time, a huge, ferocious monster. Unfortunately, instead of turning out evil, the monster turns out as Eva, a giant aspiring actress who wouldn't hurt a fly.
Just when the load on his back can't get any heavier, Igor and his band of monstrous misfits uncover an evil plot that threatens their world. Now, they must fight to save it and prove that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.
