Quotes

Scolex: [on his claw] This is sort of post-modern Captain Hook kind of feel it. Very "diabolical." I deserve a dashing appellation.
Kramer: A dashing appellation. What is that? A hillbilly with a tuxedo?

I was a fan of the original cartoon series
3 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

I was a huge fan of the original cartoon series, and was looking forward to finally seeing Gadget on the big screen -- but I never in my wildest dreams expected something so extremely extremely terrible. The pace was WAY too fast, there was no plot, and 'wowser!' - what the hell is that?? It was 'WOWSERS!!'.
