Great actors performing well in a story that just wont get interesting or funny

This plot sounded really funny: an investigation into a talking animal, which was suppose to be a reincarnation of a deceased loved one.

The bad: the problem is that however amusing this movie starts out to be, this story totally fails to become really funny or interesting. It just stays stuck into one gear of trying to see this animal that can speak and once the moment is finally there, it is one big deception. And then nothing.

I mean what's the point of this movie? It aint funny, merely mildly amusing. And it is quite long in the tooth, even with a runtime of only 90 minutes, I still got bored.

I guess it wants to use this quirky story as a way of posing the question if there is life after death. Well nobody and everybody has an answer to that and this movies plot wasnt the right format to pose that life's question.

Bummer. Great actors, who performed really well, with beautiful photography, but in the end it simply was NOT funny NOR interesting in any way...

Loved it!

This is a fun and quirky film filled with outstanding actors! I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and recommend Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose to everyone! I am an investor in Legion M and it was pretty cool to see my name in the credits! This movie is a combination of just the right mix of comedy and drama. I traveled over fifty miles to see this movie and it certainly was worth the drive and did not disappoint. If you are tired of all the gore and hatred in so many movies today then you must go see Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose. And don't forget to take your friends with you! It's a fun movie!

one for the connoisseurs

Amazing cast. Beautifully filmed. If I were a film student I would probably rave about the camera work and colour pallette/saturation, etc.

Alas, I am not. I do not, however begrudge any of the 120 minutes or so I spent watching and then going back to rewatch assuming I'd fallen asleep and missed the key plot point or story arc that had earned it such high ratings.

The cast, acting, editing, camera work, costume, and makeup can make up for a lot, but best to go in with low expectations for story and you won't be disappointed. It's a nice little tale, just not an 8. (current rating when I watched.)
