The Royal Tenenbaums

The previews give you the idea that this movie is a goofy comedy. Well, it is funny, but not in a traditional way. It is a black comedy, but it is a bit lighter and more quirky than most in that genre. I went in thinking that the movie would be stupid (it wasn’t my first choice), but I came out thinking that I was properly entertained for my money. Well, it could have been a bit cheaper, I suppose. It’s not really necessary to see this one on the big screen, so you can probably wait until it comes out on video. But well worth the cost of renting. (****)
