Every mad scientist has a subservient assistant, so Dr. Glickenstein (voice of John Cleese) has Igor (voice of John Cusack). However, this mistreated minion is tired of playing second fiddle and has his own ambitions to win the annual Evil Scientist Fair.
Why Is Igor Rated PG?
Igor is rated PG for some thematic elements, scary images, action and mild language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Igor...
This animated film about a mad scientist’s assistant features plenty of animated violence, mostly centering on an animal character that is immortal, yet doesn’t want to live. He uses explosives, poison and other devices to try and take his life, and is constantly putting himself in danger. While no explicit gory details are seen and the actions are portrayed within a humorous context, some parents and children may be disconcerted by these portrayals and the character’s lack of respect for his life. A scatological joke and a couple of veiled sexual remarks are included, as well as the depiction of a female character showing a large amount of cleavage. An invisible man tells others he is not wearing pants. One mild expletive and about a half-dozen terms of Deity are uttered. Women are often preyed upon and used by men for their own selfish interests.
Home Video Viewing Alternatives
Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Igor.
This animated tale looks like a cross between The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Igor has the same body type) and The Corpse Bride (which also features ghoulish characters). Winning the science fair is also the greatest dream of a young man in Meet the Robinsons. Another nutty squirrel acts as a sidekick in the movie Hoodwinked. The challenges of immortality are explored in the film Groundhog Day.
