Well, I'm going to tell you how to enjoy
this movie. Take your kids, grand kids, any kids you like, set
them in the front row of the theater, then get the heck out of
I didn't do that. This craze has reached
the level of an almost religious cult among the younger set.
So learn all you can about these little critters, and you won't
feel left out and a lot smarter. Then just pick them up.
Seeing Pokemon is like having your
kids take you on vacation--you'll wonder why it's taking so long
and why you're not there yet.
Unfunny, uninspired, and uninteresting--your
kids will love it!
Only 150 more trips to the theater and
I'll have a complete set of trading cards.
The one thing I found to have some redeeming
value in the Pokemon movie for kids, is when Ask Ketchum,
a human Pokemon trainer, steps in to break up a battle between
two of the most powerful Pokemons, named Mew and his bad-guy
clone, Mew Two. The result is that Ash the human trainer
is knocked lifeless, creating a sadness and a river of tears
from all 150 Pokemon characters. The tears flow into his body
and bring him back to life. I think kids will like the satisfying
ending, where good wins out over evil monster madness.
