Film Critic Quote of the Day

James Berardinelli on "Monsters vs. Aliens":

I'm sure the average five year-old will be enchanted. But the average five year old watches Teletubbies and Sponge Bob Squarepants. The problem with Monsters vs. Aliens is that all those writers didn't think much about potential audience members on the hairy side of puberty... this is not a movie. It's an amusement park ride. It's a chance for kids to "ooh" and "ahh" while parents catch a nap. Sure, the film is sweet and harmless but, take away the 3D, and all you're left with is a generic kids' movie.
I totally agree; had I not seen it in IMAX 3D, I'm sure I'd have been even more underwhelmed.
