The French animated movie Igor has received mostly positive reviews -- but they fall far short of raves. In Newsday, John Anderson writes "Not all the jokes work, but most do, and the overall tenor of Igor is goofily funny -- probably a bit sophisticated for kids but certainly good-natured." Claudia Puig in USA Today awards it a middling 2 1/2 stars, writing "This story of a world of mad scientists and their Igor lab assistants has some inspired lunacy as it spoofs classic horror films, though sometimes the jokes grow belabored." Some critics took their children to the screening and asked them to critic the movie. "My kid went with it," writes Michael Phillips in the Chicago Tribune, "and I had a fairly good time."
