"Lurch!"
4 stars (Worth A Look)

You have to see this, if only to see how cool Christina Ricci was before she grew that attitude.

Truly, this is one of the more finely crafted pieces of comedy to come in modern times. Very surreal, very very morbid--I love it!!! And lots of laughs. PLus, Lurch is in it. C'mon! Not to mention Thing and the scores of other colorful characters.

But the best part of this movie is the absurd, silly, crazy, contrived plotline. Needless to say, long lost brothers and amnesia play a large role. But more than that the little moments stand out and make it worthwhile to see over and over again. Wednesday asking to be passed the salt. What do we say, dear? NOW! Haha. I love Wednesday.

All the acting is perfectly over the top. This is never serious. Nor should it be, for we like it as is, absurdists and insane.

An oustanding comedy. Most defiantely different from the normal Hollywood slop. 4 sporks.
