Wanna see what $90 million WB ain't gonna see again looks like?
27 August 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Pluto Nash" really should have been advertised as "From the director of 'Mighty Joe Young' and the writer of 'Mystery Men'" It would have had the same effect as WB's war of malaise against this excavation from development hell. This is a movie that does everything wrong. But the most offensive thing is how needless profanity is injected into what could easily be a PG movie in order to make it barely PG-13, in fact it should have been given an R. Without the profanity this might have made a less grating $90 million dollar babysitter at least, but some smart guy decided to add completely unmotivated cursing to every scene, how many movies that you watch with your five year old have people dropping things and yelling "Sh$T!" And some of the violence didn't need to be so realistic. They could have had another good kids movie here, albeit a horribly scripted one that would have annoyed the sh$T! out of babysitters for years to come, instead they had a $2million opening weekend on a $90million budget. Cheers.
