What's wrong with you, people??? Why has this movie such a low
I loved those bugs everywhere. The special effects are OK. The story
itself is a bit naive, but, hé, it's a fairy-tale!
Everyone who likes Who frames Roger Rabbit, Ant Z, Thumbelina by Don
Bluth (OK, bad example) or over-the-top-sentimental-romance like What
Dreams May Come must like Joe's Apartment.
What do we have here? 1: a lonely country-boy in New York; 2: two ugly
and dumb bad guys; 3: a sweet girl as love interest; and 4: thousands
of bugs who are supposed to be loathsome, but soon turn out to be
adorable. The first three items you have seen all before. But the
fourth! You've never seen something like this, and you will never
forget you saw it.
