Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Cy does find a way to heal his daughter, but it involves transforming himself in to a bird creature to eat the bug people.

Con: The mix of humor and seriousness doesn’t always work. And it’s hard to believe Cy really cares about Annie when we saw him try to sell her for twelve dollars.

  1. Yeah, the caustic humor in this really didn't work for me. And I didn't buy that Cy would go to all this trouble for his child.
