Action/Adventure, Comedy
This is an animated film, though after you see it you might wonder whether the term is intended as oxymoronic in this instance; put simply, it's lifeless. A little fish named Oscar (Will Smith) dreams of escaping his graffiti-covered ghetto beneath the sea and movin' on up to a deluxe apartment in the sky. He works his crap job at the whale wash, scraping tongues and chatting up his lovestruck best friend, Angie (Renee Zellweger), whose affections Oscar doesn't notice. On the other side of the reef, Robert De Niro's Don Lino is putting the protection squeeze on whale-wash owner Sykes (Martin Scorsese) and trying to teach his son Lenny (Jack Black, playing Italian but sounding vaguely Irish) to be a killer, when he's just a softie vegetarian. In short, it's just a Godfather parody with limp pop-culture jokes -- Shrek 2 without smarts or heart. It's stunning, really, to consider how much time and expense went into something so chintzy and dull -- a script full of non sequiturs shouted by a screen full of chum.
