Pigs. Guinea Pigs.

(Movie review)


Starring Zach Galifianakis, Bill Nighy, Will Arnett, Kelli Garner, Neicy Nash, and the voices of Nicolas Cage, Sam Rockwell, Penelope Cruz, Jon Favreau, Tracy Morgan and Steve Buscemi.
Directed by Hoyt Yeatman.

Saw this with my kids, and they loved seeing their first 3-D movie. And for something this simplistic, 3-D is the only reason to watch it. Lots of things fly at the screen, and there's this weird Transformers-esque third act, but bottom line is it should be funny, and it never is. It's also downright uncomfortable to see Zach Galifianakis, who was allowed to spread his comic wings in The Hangover, have to get dewey-eyed at the end for the happy ending with his talking guinea pigs.
