Oh Dudley. How could you do me so wrong?
Let's start out, in all fairness, to say this will be a difficult
review for me to write. I mean, how can one review a flick from the confines of their sweltering Mini-Van??
Yes, I felt it was that bad. I had two preteens with me who
were begging to go within the first half an hour. After a mildly uninspired "Lords of the Dance" meets
"Dances with Wolves" I shucked aside my popcorn and followed suit.
Let's get on the record, once more, that I adore Brendan Fraser.
I can rehash his lovable loser abilities to no end on this one, but it won't save this movie.
I was disappointed. I had high hopes - being a true Canadian
myself - that the morning cartoon I religiously watched while slopping down my Cheerios with gusto would spring
to life in a wonderful reenactment. Remember good old George of the Jungle?? Well, they pulled that one off, didn't
The problem with this - from what little I saw - was an uninspired
script with uninspired acting and, aside from the always wellcast Fraser, uninspired casting. Wow. That about said
