Amy Adams ?!
19 April 2011 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

It's the average Tom and Jerry fun. I felt it could have had more to it, especially anything instead of that hasty laconic end which I didn't like. Being an average Tom and Jerry movie at the moment was a sin I suppose. The main team, which made the glory days, was all alive; directors (Joseph Barbera), (William Hanna), musician (Scott Bradley), and being led by producer (Fred Quimby) himself. But sure not all the works of one group of artists had to be all classics.

Many thoughts come to my mind whenever I see the housewife of the old Tom and Jerry shorts, the one with the never-seen face. The thing is she always has very thin, and I mean very thin, waist. Not to mention her blown skirt, with the well-mannered language. Back then, the figure of the woman had to be just one all along. While the opposite is exclusive for the black servant (nothing but fat and noisy!). I believe that's why the word "mold" doesn't differ much from the word "mould"!

Anyway, did you hear the voice of her this time? Oh God. The surprise just hit me; it is (Amy Adams)!

True that I knew later that it was the voice of actress (June Foray), who vocally played the lady, along with numerous characters, in old cartoons. But according to the striking similarity between the 2 voices, you'll bet that (Adams) traveled in time to make it, then returned. Here's something for the sci-fi mysteries writers to inspire!

If you skipped this one, you wouldn't lose much. It's interesting only for that resemblance. Whether it's (Adams) or (Foray), that smooth tender tone is something to enjoy, and remember this movie for.
