Why, you might ask?
1) Because they were off of school (another teacher professional day-gee I wish we had that many when I was a kid)
2) Because I have a little thing for Jack Black. Okay, I admit it. Now I need a ten step program.
3) I had free tickets.
This movie, while quite campy at times had two of my favorite premises. Fish out of water--make that a big fish and underdog. Throw in some unrequitted love, heroine in jeopardy, lots of new technology to update the classic tale, and you've got a cute story. Me and the kids give it a thumbs up. It will definately hit the rental pile when it comes out on DVD.
So, what are your classic plots or premises? Inquiring minds want to know.
