An enjoyably small story, simultaneously charming and funny at times and well-acted throughout. Between The Spectacular Now, Mud, The Way Way Back - and now Kings of Summer - it's been a great year for coming-of-age movies.
Monster's Inc. was such a breath of fresh air at its time of release. This, by design, is a copy of the original with slight twists here and there. The final result isn't necessarily bad - just not near as original as its predecessor.
Infamous for being the cowboy/vampire flick Wesley Snipes was filming in the midst of the worst of his tax troubles. Cheap, gory, dumb... just as I expected. Too bad the entire thing takes itself too serious to add "fun" to that list.
