Igor

Critics Consensus

With an animation style that apes Tim Burton, and a slew of cultural references that aren't clear enough to reach the crowds, Igor's patched together antics make it hard to see who the film is trying to please.

Movie Info

In a land of mad scientists and diabolical inventions, what do you do when youre born with a hunch on your back? You become an Igor. A twist on the classic monster movie, that tells the story of one Igor--who's sick of being a lowly lab assistant with a "Yes Master's" degree--and dreams of becoming a scientist. When his cruel master kicks the bucket a week before the annual Evil Science Fair, Igor finally gets his chance. With the help of two of his experimental creations--Brain, a brain in a jar who's a little light on brains, and Scamper, a cynical bunny brought back from being road kill, Igor embarks on building the most evil invention of all time, a huge, ferocious monster. Unfortunately, instead of turning out evil, the monster turns out as Eva, a giant aspiring actress who wouldn't hurt a fly. Just when the load on his back can't get any heavier, Igor and his band of monstrous misfits uncover an evil plot that threatens their world. Now, they must fight to save it and prove that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

Audience Reviews for Igor

  • Oct 11, 2014
    An eccentric take on the character form the Frankenstein series, Igor is imaginative and a bit of fun. After his mad scientist dies, Igor attempts to become a scientist himself by entering the annual Evil Science Fair. John Cusack, Molly Shannon, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, and Jay Leno lead the cast and give fairly good performances. However, the character designs are bizarre and the plot is formulaic. The concept behind the story, a city dedicated to being mad scientists and Igors, is pretty interesting but the film never fully commits to it; opting instead for a cliched message about choosing to be good. Igor is mildly entertaining and delivers some laughs, but it's completely forgettable.

    Kids & Family? Yes. Comedy? Nope. I didn't it funny at all. But was not boring either.

    Had it's moments... Really liked Steve B.'s bunny character. Other then that, not much to it.

    A real bore. You should congratulate yourself if you make it to the end, the movie certainly won't.
