Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I just didn't think there were anywhere close to enough laughs in this movie and that ultimately, as a comedy, is what it's got to deliver."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Igor, like the Frankenstein's monster at the centre of its tired plot, looks like something cobbled together out of used, very used, parts."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Igor has charm but misses a grand opportunity to evoke the world of James Whale when it would rather crib blatantly from Tim Burton."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"As far as goes its ability to stifle the young imagination, Igor has no recent competitor."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Igor sends up all sorts of cliches, but -- by degenerating into a mawkish romance and a boring race against time -- it also becomes one."
‑ Mark Demetrius, FILMINK (Australia)
"It is not visually stimulating."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"While much of the banter between the characters is inventive, the plot turns are predictable - complete with a romantic misunderstanding straight out of The Karate Kid (and 20 other films)."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"There's a lurking feeling that somewhere along the production line, nervous studio types ordered changes to make the movie more commercial."
‑ James White, SFX Magazine
"A fun time-killer for kids aged tween and up..."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
"If you are the type that wishes filmmaker Tim Burton still put his name to funky animated monstrosities like The Nightmare Before Christmas, then Igor will fit the bill just nicely."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Daily Telegraph (Australia)
"But there's not much form to the plot which develops in fits and starts. Nevertheless, those kids that weren't confused appeared to enjoy it, so there you go."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Pieced together from Tim Burton and various other sources with more desperation than inspiration."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Director Anthony Leondis needs to go back to the lab."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"Igor celebrates a defiantly adolescent and suitably caricatured vision of mortality with the potential to have adults and special young malcontents in stitches."
‑ Eddie Cockrell, Sydney Morning Herald
"It(TM)s a strange, dark little film with suicidal rabbits and brains in jars, stunted heroes and Frankenstein-like objects of love."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
