Much of it will probably go right over the heads of kids who aren't familiar with classic movies or the naughtiness of Eddie Izzard.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
With an uneven and overstuffed script you appreciate the corner-of-the-mouth comments as delivered by Steve Buscemi.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
If Mel Brooks were to team up with Tim Burton, the result might be something like the loony and colorfully tantalizing animated film Igor.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Sparky voice performances and heart make up for this family film's theft of Tim Burton's sensibility.

The Hollywood Reporter

Although the visuals tantalize and the actors providing the voices add a lot of sass, the result is only so-so.

Entertainment Weekly

The visuals are a kick; the groan-inducing dialogue isn't.

By Peter Hartlaub
In style and tone, Igor seems more like a short from the adult-oriented "Spike & Mike's Festival of Animation."

You can't blame John Cusack for jumping at the chance to play Igor.

STAY AWAY IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN

By suzrules
This moving is absolutely inappropriate for any child under the age of 15. Four different families walked out of this theater at the same time we did. There are "jokes" about brainwashing a monster...

IGOR : Message, Heart and Tasteful Yet Irreverant Humor!

By fairreviewer
More wholesome than Shrek (no innuendo jokes confusing kids just for an adult laugh), IGOR has a very meaningful message about "using your powers for good instead of evil". Creating a lot of innocence...

DUMB, BRAINLESS, MIND-NUMBING DULL. GRADE: F

By MOVIES REVIEWER
I just saw the advance press screening of this lack-luster mundane animated movie. It was neither clever nor smart - but, unimaginative and full of cliches stolen from Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar -...

Not for Younger Children...if any!

Igor

By boodaddytoo
Not for younger kids - much too much "evil is good", "kill, "kill", "kill". There are some PG movies, like Kung Fu Panda, that are okay, but this was not. The ratings board yet again proves...

More for parents than kids it seemed.

By Trikky
I screened this movie last night and I was not let down. Granted my reaction prior to seeing the movie was ohhh great another low budget animation movie with big name stars trying to make a mark. But...
