Saw this last night, and while not bad, it didn't live up to my high expectations. Another case of the trailers giving too much of the movie away. Thumbs up to the voice casting as everything worked well there. Ferrell especially.
The plot got sort of confusing for a movie that's been targeted to kids with constant "is he good? is he bad?" flip-flopping. Also the device of a watch where people can switch to other bodies got distracting when overused (think Mystique in the X-Men movies).
Again, I walk out of a 3-D movie thinking I would have enjoyed it just as much on a regular screen.
I was hoping someone would start a thread as I went to the movie over the weekend but didn't 'see' much of it. Our two-year-old is potty training and she lugged me to the restroom a whopping nine times throughout. But of what I did see, I liked (I saw it in 2D).
I liked the voice casting too. I figured them all out except for Tina Fey. Just didn't dawn on me until the credits. Hoping to rent it when it comes out on video to fill in the blanks.
I caught the series premiere and must say if it stays this good all season, it will move into my top five shows mot to miss. Tina Fey was great, but I loved how she did not give herself all the good lines. Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan were great.
