There isn’t much to this CGI time-killer about a mad scientist’s hunchbacked assistant who has aspirations of his own. So it’s the little things that count: the title character (voiced by John Cusack), an Igor School grad with a Yes-Master degree who sounds like Boris Karloff when he’s around others and like John Cusack when he’s narrating the movie; his stitched-together creation, who mistakes Igor’s “evil” orders for her name, Eva; and a pair of chatty inventions/sidekicks – a suicidal rabbit cursed with immortality (Steve Buscemi in full existential-angst mode) and a not-so-brilliant brain in a jar who accidentally scrawled “Brian” on the outside of his home in permanent ink. After his bumbling master’s latest experiment ends fatally for the old guy, Igor gets the run of the lab and makes a monster, which he hopes will snag first place in the Evil Science Fair. Unfortunately, all the goodhearted Eva wants to do is act. The horror! HH 1/2
