Timing is everything. With a lot of states relaxing restrictions right now I think you could have had a $12.5 million weekend with a re-release double feature of Gigli and Ishtar.

I take issue with that, Ishtar was much maligned.

I'd definitely watch the Liam Neeson movie in which he shoots Tom and Jerry.

Don't spoil the movie! I'm guessing Tom wins this time.

Tom needs to be in a movie with Wylie Coyote & the Washington Generals.

I know their relationship was a bit testy at times but they haven't called themselves "Tom and Jerry" for a long time.

Stereotypical Farkers aren't the target audience for any theatrical release, pandemic or not. They're too cool to go to the movies.

That's not Tom and Jerry, that's Thelma and Louise.

Trash can, cellophane, slide whistle. pistol, random screaming.

In vaguely related news I still think Jerry & Tom is an underrated movie.

And yet, the average Farker has seen every movie ever made.

Exactly.  I have a young child and this was mandatory viewing on Friday.  It wasn't the torture that I was expecting.  Has some great music (Tribe, DJ Shadow w/De La Soul) and a good cast (Michael Pena).


As a pare, I think you usually end up grading kids' movies on a curve, and sometimes get an excellent surprise.  It's not like this is up there with the best Pixar movies, but I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed The Good Dinosaur.  I mean, I sat through Nine Lives once.  This could've been a helluva lot worse.

Not fair; but in the aggregate we've come damn close.  There are some truly knowledgeable cinephiles hanging out here.

The truth is that everyone wishes for that to happen. Jerry is a creepy disgusting rodent.

Oh, and I found myself wishing that T&J had a little more of the old ultraviolence, but it's probably for the best that it doesn't.

Who IS the target audience for this movie? Because it really isn't kids, either. At least not the kids they think they are targeting.

Sort of like a Clutch Cargo reboot or a gritty Top Cat movie.

I'm still astonished that live action Banana Splits horror movie is a real thing and not just an internet meme. All I ever hear in my head is "Bill Brasky hunted them down with an axe, they all begged for their lives, except for Fleegle."

Yeah, but the cliche is that they watched them all via streaming services inside their basement bunkers.

I'd definitely watch the Liam Neeson movie in which he shoots Tom and Jerry.


But only in cartoon style violence.

It was apparently HUGE with Hispanic families.  They accounted for over a third of box office sales for the movie.

I would figure that Fark would be exactly the target audience for toddler-level humor and fart jokes.

Fark isn't the target audience for the 75+ year old property? You sure?

I'd watch Chloe Grace Moretz fart the Slovakian national anthem through a kazoo in pitch black without infrared, and I'd probably not complain about having to pay for a ticket.

Never much cared for T & J.  The Looney Tunes cartoons of the '40s and '50s were usually top-notch, clever and well-written, enjoyable for both kids and adults.  I still get a kick out of them fifty years after watching them the first time.

You are a better parent than I am. I lasted about 10 minutes before I bailed. Didn't help that the sound was about 1/2 second out of sync at first. Restarting fixed the sound, but I couldn't watch anymore.

I saw it mainly because it was the only thing new on streaming channels.
While it was just ok and very cliche, all I have to say is, Jerry is a dick.

I must be getting old; I can't seem to process her as an adult.  Watching this movie, I kept feeling skeptical of her having grownup jobs, etc.
