Dir: Frank Oz
2004 Color English 93 Min
Rated PG-13 for sexual content, thematic material and language.
Frank Oz, Scott Rudin, and Paul Rudnick basically make the same movie. Sure there are differences in the story and the actors, but this re-make of a 70’s camp classic is very similar in style to “In & Out”, Jeffrey, and Addams Family Reunion back in the 90’s. Nothing real special here, though I loved Bette Midler, Christopher Walken, and Glenn Close. I guess I have never been a big Nicole Kidman fan, but she was at least tolerable. Thank goodness Jon Lovitz is getting some work.
