Fun Movie, Weak Release
on July 24, 2015
Watched this one the other night. I have seen it plenty of times to be able to quote most of the movie. It's a silly remake of the original 1930 shorts for kids of the 90s. The child actors are all pretty decent and there are a lot of good adult cameos (mel brooks, lea thompson, donald trump, whoopi goldburg, reba macintire). The movie is a little raunchier than I remember, but nothing too risque.
I do have to say that this blu ray release is quite dismal. There are no special features - deleted scenes, outtakes, behind the scenes, actor interviews, etc. There isn't even a director commentary. Those are usually a given. I also felt that the image was really soft for a HD movie. The detail doesn't really pop, at least not to me.
Still a good movie form my childhood despite the flaws. Worth checking out on the cheap
