Friday Night Movies
This Week’s Trend Goody:
Everyone has one or two embarrassing phobias that seem to be leftover from some childhood trauma. I know more than a few level-headed adults who cower at the sight of clowns. My quirk confession? Animals that can talk in movies freak me out. Now I’m OK with cartoon kangaroos and puppet penguins conversing on TV or the big screen. That doesn’t bother me one bit. But make said animals into semi-realistic-looking characters and…well, let’s just say it’s not cute. Starting this summer, I will have to trade in trips to the movies for another hobby because chatty cats and gossipy puppies are taking over the theaters. Marmaduke and Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore kick of this trend, and unfortunately for me, it continues through the fall, ending with what sounds like the most disturbing film of all: a live-action update of Yogi Bear.
The one caveat to my cool-with-puppets part? Animal puppets that sing. CREEPY!
On second thought, it is kind of cute…in a creepy way. What do you think? Video via EW
