The book is better
10 April 2016 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

A reboot is pitched. It doesn't go well. Sadly, the idea is better than many that are green-lit, produced and released.

Among the cameos we have poor Clint Howard mugging away, as we're... "treated"? to fart jokes and similarly dumb material. The "joke" goes on for entirely too long. Pippi reimagined as a comic book hero: hey, there might be some material there! She does have super-strength... but then this also gives her regular guns for some reason. And almost immediately, this veers off into directions that make you wonder why they picked this property for the parody, when they could have gone with anything else, or nothing at all.

This debuted on "funny or die", a site I do what I can to steer clear of since I find that when it doesn't fall into the former, it does deserve the latter. Hey, at least they realized when they titled it. The only reason I watched this was because I try to give a watch to anything Milla Jovovich is in. Casting her in this is of course going off her action heroine roles. And her appearance here partly works: she pulls off those ridiculous pigtails, the red haircolor, heck, until she replaces it with black leather, the dorky outfit wasn't bad on her. She fares well.

There is some mild violence in this. I recommend this only to those who refuse to believe it exists unless they see it. 3/10
