Dr. Neuman: The Mifulu represent a fascinating example of failed culture. The people of the Mifulu communicated entirely in rhyme, although that's actually less impressive than it sounds, because their language only contained one vowel. Also, if you've noticed, the only artifacts we've been able to unearth are primitive musical instruments. The Mifulu's had plenty of drums, guitars, harmonicas and the like, but no weapons or tools. So, in essence, they had rhythm, they had music, but they had ...

Tex Avery Lives…Again
12 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If You Enjoyed the Original Movie with Jim Carrey that was an Homage to Legendary Animator Tex Avery, then by all means pick up the Avery Box set and Relive the Genius. Once You are Familiar (or overly familiar like baby boomer's who cut their TV-teeth watching those gems over and over) and Know Every Gag by Heart (and still laugh), then Watch this Sequel to get Even More of the Zaniness with this CGI Update.

It is Mysterious (and a bit sad) that Tex Avery and His Animator Peers did this Decades Ago and came up with this Hand-Drawn, Frame by Frame, Looniness, that Thrilled Movie Audiences and then the TV Kids with Limited Budgets and Out of this World Imaginations and this One Costs Near 90 Million Dollars. Oh well, the 15 Cent a Gallon Gas is Long Gone.

While Nowhere Near the Depth and On Screen Human Talent like Carrey and Diaz are On Display Here, in Fact the Humans are Barely Passable, but Manage. The Movie Must be Given Credit for All the Revisitation of the Tex Avery Schicht. It Worked then and it Works now. It is Nutball Nuttiness and Sight Gags Galore.

In an Era of the Farley Brothers and Family Guy, this One is Guilty of Putting in Unneeded, Raunchy, Gross Out Scenes but Thankfully there are Only a Few and the Rest of the Classic Stuff just Outshines that Trendy Todayness. This is an Underrated Movie that is Definitely Worth a Watch for Cartoon Fanatics and for Those just Out for some Good Time, Slapstick, Outrageous, and Retro, Out to Lunch Foolishness.

Note...Any movie that rips Ben Stein's face off is doing something right.

Note 2...Don't forget to pick up that Tex Avery Box Set!
