My favorite movie so far this year. It's also—I think—a metaphor for the very talented director Jon Favreau's experience working with the powers-that-be-way-too-powerful in Hollywood. Funny, warm delightful.
Absolutely terrific performances by all the monsters. But cover your eyes and ears—especially your ears—for most of the scenes with humans. I don't know what was scarier—Godzilla, or Bryan Cranston's hair piece? Monsters A-, humans C-.
Brilliant, illuminating, miraculous, tedious.
I have the feeling that Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore are very nice people and loving parents. They're also talented and can get films green-lit. They should do much better than this.
