Doug (vo): Number six...''Inspector Gadget''. And I'll just say it right now: I watched ''Inspector Gadget'' (the show) growing up.
 
Doug (vo): Number six...''Inspector Gadget''. And I'll just say it right now: I watched ''Inspector Gadget'' (the show) growing up.
   
Doug: It's nothing special. The-the coolest thing in the show is the girl and the book. You know, that shit was cool. I...why didn't they ever make the show about her? Why didn't they make a movie about her? They should make a movie out of Penny. Somebody [[Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas|made like that fake trailer with just Penny and, like, you know, Inspector Gadget was like destroyed and the Terminator thing that crushed him]] like in ''Robot Chicken'' or something, it's just Penny's story. Why did that ''Robot Chicken'' sketch end there? It should have kept go...I'm really getting sidetracked today, I'm sorry. OK, ''Inspector Gadget''. Uh, you know, not the world's greatest cartoon but, whatever, it wasn't insulting. It was kind of obviously for little kids. It had some intelligence, you know, and you had that smart character. You had the girl. It was great. Um, you know, and even the dog was kind of smart and Inspector Gadget, for kids, you know, was an enjoyable stupid person. Uh, I don't know what the movie's trying to do and I don't think the director cared about the cartoon. It really seemed like something where it's just a director who never heard about the cartoon didn't bother to really learn much about it, just sort of watch it and said "Oh God, I gotta do this? OK, let's try to get through it, let's try to blah-blah-blah.". Um, and I don't know, it's like when you're going into subject material even if you're not familiar with, like Bryan Singer, most of the actors going into ''X-Men'' did not know X-Men. But, you know what they did? They watched all the fucking cartoons. They read the comics. I mean, they looked into it so that when they made a choice, you know, they were keeping aware "OK, will this...is this still keeping true to the essence of something?". This clearly didn't. And it's not like it's that complicated a story to keep following. It's the same formula every time. You know, if you just did that formula in the movie, you'd probably be OK, but, uh, no they did...I don't know what they did. It... They made D. L. Hughley a car. What? When did the car talk? It didn't. Penny barely has a role. That was like your hero. You know, she barely does anything. Where's that fucking book? Where's the watch? Oh, the watch comes in at the end. The dog talks in the end. Well, the dog never really talked, but... and when he did, he didn't sound like Don Adams. That was...and he wasn't hitting his head on the fridge. What was that? Did you remember that scene at the end when it's like the dog talks, he's like hitting his head on the fridge. Why? You really didn't have another shot? Or you couldn't CG the dog? There's enough CG in there. Uh, okay, Matthew Broderick, who, again, I'm sure is a sweet guy, I'm sure he's really nice. I just can't stand him as an actor. Uh, it just does not do a thing for me. Every time he's on... No. I can't think of a thing. The closest is ''Ferris Bueller'' and even then, I mean, he's supposed to be the cool kid, and I thought he was a little bit of a dweeb. But, you know, that worked okay, he had some charm. I never saw him in anything else good after that. Except that episode of ''Louie'' where he was directing ''Godfather 4''. That, that was a great cameo. That was good. But I digress again. Um, he-he's not Inspector Gadget, he's not very engaging. Uh, I always feel like I'm watching [[Godzilla|Matthew Broderick act as never a character.]] [[Dunston Checks In|Rupert Everett]]? What the fuck? Who came up with that brilliant idea? How menacing could you have made Dr. Claw in this movie with the technology we have today. And that CG I keep complaining about. Imagine that hand. Imagine the cat. You could make like a really cool evil cat or something like that. This is one of those movies that actually they probably should remake. They should remake it, scrap Gadget, just make it about Penny. You know, and she has a dog, you know, just like a real dog, but make it like a badass dog, like a, I don't know, a pit bull or something, I have no idea, just some badass dog, you know, "Brain, sic 'em!" and he eats the fuck out of them. You could make this a badass movie. I want someone to make that fake trailer where it's just like Penny, or Gadget, or whatever, uh, or Penny and Brain, I, OK, that sounds pretty stupid but you could make a fake trailer out of that and make it pretty cool. Um, so, yeah, I, the CG is stupid, the way the story is told, it really feels like just there's a lot of scenes they had but they didn't have the budget to film the rest or the time so they threw it in somewhere. It's...a lot of the movie feels like that. And just, it just feels like there's not much control while you're watching it. And there's not much focus and that these people didn't...they must have seen ''Inspector Gadget'' but they didn't care enough to really try and represent the show. Like it was more cartoony than the cartoon. You know, I mean it was like insultingly cartoony. You know, where the cartoon at least was trying to mimic some form of everyday life you know for kids. This was trying to mimic a cartoon world that was already a cartoon world but make it more cartoony 'cause it's in reality, I don't know. This movie has made me not make words, sentences that I can complete formally in this period. So, uh, yeah, did not like this movie. Real...yeah.
