Queer Duck.

Good points: there's a character who's a pig, and he's called Peccary. And Peccary is voiced by Tim Curry.

Bad points: about anything else.
And why did I find this in the Kids section?

It was a sign. The video stopped playing about 15 minutes in. Eventually I got the tape eaten by the VCR, and DED had to come to the rescue.

But Addams Family Reunion is nothing of a good movie.

As you know bbp gave me for my birthday the first half of the first season of the fugitive, later I bought the second half.
But there are 4 seasons wich means 40 dvd's in total. I managed to find torrents and found myself a new site that one is great for old series and movies like Man about the house, Hawai five O I believe and many other. I am now watching Docters in the house. A funny one when I was young. I am planning to download on the buses and good old The invisable man series and with my name irrestistable Mr. Ed the speaking Horse. The website is called xtremetv.org

I know he's not a movie. But Leonard Maltin ruins everything he's on.

I sat through the first 40 minutes of "4 Dogs Playing Poker", again for Tim Curry. My recent art knowledge butchered it slightly, when I noticed the Degas statuette they were stealing was obviously fake (wrong height and wearing a skirt). Plus there was also a Rembrandt in the room, which they left there.

But that was not my first beef with it. That was when one of Curry's first lines: "If you drop that ice statue I will slay your first-born!" was translated to "...I will castrate you on the spot!"

Also troublesome was witnessing Curry's character (I think he was called Felix. I didn't even bother to remember the names of the 4 main characters) WRAPPING THE STOLEN DEGAS IN A NEWSPAPER... ON THE STREET where everyone could see it.
Then he put the flimsy wrapped statue on the crate at the loading point of the boat, talked some to the guy dealing with shipments, then WENT AWAY, then DISCOVERED the statuette was gone, then SIGNED for having handed it over. :yawn:

During a nasty confrontation with the people who gave out the assignment, he was shot, and for some reason we had to witness how his wound was dealt with. :regan:

And then, when he was hung and his legs were cut off, there was no more fun in it for me. I couldn't care less about the real bad lines and about the characters (I only knew the name of one of the four main ones) so I saved myself an hour and switched it off. Gawd.
When BBP wrote this , I didnt read it properly, so I forgot the name of the movie. At the end of that year (2009) I bought presents and remembered that BBP was a great fan of Tim Curry, I found a movie with him.. Four dogs ........ BBP as really upset. And I forgot. A few days ago (2011) when I was at the bicyclerepairshop for Saskia's bicycle I went to the nearby outlet and found a Tim Curry movie........Four dogs......
I wanted to surprise her, and boy what a surprise it was!

BBP ends her opinion about me and the movie by punishing me to watch the movie.......and a miracle. I really liked the movie. It had a good plot and a surprising end. The frequent use of the f. word did not upset me, since I was in the middle of British soccer fans of West Ham United. They really couldn't say one single sentence without a at least 3 or four f. in it.
BBP turned it of after a 40 minutes so she saw most keys in the movie, without seeing the rest of the movie you miss the reason of the keys. In the end it will all be clear to you.

I did watch it to the end, but not until my third attempt. The first and second time I quit during the scene when they're plotting what to do after Felix is dead .
My problem with the way they use the F-word is they did it so frequently it became devoid of meaning. I intended to watch it again and count them all, but that is a bit much.
