Action/Adventure, Horror, SciFi/Fantasy
How do relentless turkeys like Cirque du Freak attract the kind of talent like director/writer Paul Weitz, co-writer Brian Helgeland, actors John C. Reilly, Willem Dafoe, Ken Wantanabe and Salma Hayek? Who got this ball rolling and where can I address my nasty letters? This year has had its share of kiddie movies that play like a kind of bouncy castle for the brain (G-Force, Shorts), but never any as shockingly unpleasant as Freak. Based on the young adult novel series, The Saga of Darren Shan, the movie, where some snot-nosed teen becomes a circus-freak vampire, has an outdated good-kid/bad-kid dichotomy. It makes me down-right queasy that a movie would simply explain that good grades make you the hero, while an abusive home life makes you unequivocally evil. –Hillary Titley
