This movie turns 5 this year. And what better way to mark a fifth anniversary than to rend asunder this utter pile of wasted talent. I love everybody in this movie. But put 'em together and make a stew, and it tastes awful.
A stunningly bad film that managed to take all of the darkness from the book series and left out all of the fun. There seems to be a trajectory in the careers of film comedians - the rise, the stardom, the mega stardom, the films where no one tries to rein in their performances, the slide to clichedom and mediocrity... This applies to Jim Carrey as much as to Mike Myers and Will ferrell. When they work with directors who try to control their hammy tendencies, they can be quite funny. But when the director sits back and lets the actors do whatever they want, the result is disastrous. This film was directed by Brad Silberling who also helmed the Podcast eligible "Land Of The Lost" a few years later.
