First, this is not a family movie. It’s just not. We really need a new rating system between PG-13 and R, I believe, but that is our mistake.
The acting was horrible, the story line never ending and poorly written, and it was just this side of campy. I was expecting a parody of the old television show, and who wouldn’t with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp? What I got was a movie which couldn’t decide if it wanted to be a parody or a real take off. It failed. Horribly.
And, honestly… the mother didn’t know that her daughter was a werewolf? There were so many plot holes that it made it difficult to actually follow the movie. Characters were there just because they were supposed to be, given no development or actual role. I kept excepting actual heart, but nothing.
This is why Joss Whedon, by law, should direct these sort of movies.
The language was not acceptable. Several of the scenes were more than suggestive. It was not scary and trust me, far, far from funny.
