Things don’t get much better from there, with Black at one point rescuing the kingdom from an inferno by peeing on it. Sigh.
It’s really an awful movie, obviously meant to cash in on the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM movies. While I wasn’t a huge fan of those films- they’re Amblin’esque compared to this rubbish. The only upside is that the film features a few genuinely funny folks, with Chris O’Dowd and Billiy Connelly managing to wring a few laughs from the material. Hard to believe this was co-written by Nicholas Stoller, the man behind FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL and GET HIM TO THE GREEK. I suppose that explains why Jason Segel ended up in this waste of his talent. And don’t even get me started on Emily Blunt. What’s an actress of her caliber doing in this?
As for Black- what the heck happened? Around the time SCHOOL OF ROCK came out, I thought we were in store for years of great Jack Black vehicules. Other than the moderately amusing KUNG-FU PANDA, and a great role in TROPIC THUNDER, he’s done nothing but garbage since. Shame.
