Never saw the first one, so for once, seeing a prequel didn’t ‘ruin’ any of the fun, but Pixar = fun, cept when they try too hard or not hard enough. Anywho, it was cool to hear cartoon Billy Crystal chat it up and become BFFs with cartoon John Goodman. But fo’reals, why does every animnated movie have to have every single role, top to bottom, filled with celeb voices? Don’t think kids really care that Helen Mirren is lending her pipes to give Dean Hardscrabble her scrabbles hard. As for the adults, they don’t give a sh$t either, as Mirren’s voice added nothing, and mainly took away from this otherwise frivolously funned G-rated version of Revenge of The Nerds
Sadly this is NOT the sequel or prequel to Enter The Void. It’s about some Hasidic Israeli dude (Yiftach Klein) having his wife die during childbirth. Everyone agrees he needs a new wife. Everyone knows its gonna be his sister-in-law Hadas Yaron, cause she’s hot, and she knows how to deal with kids and she plays the accordion. A touching movie with a conclusion that’s a tad too foregone. Regardless – I give it 19 L’chaims!
Btw, that Hasidic Israeli dude is a total fox in real life!!!
