About a Boy vs. The Hunchback of Notre Dame



on 5/5/2011

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is indicative of a period of Disney which I am not fond of. The trend of taking historical or classic books and disney-fying them to have "happy" endings. The girl ends up with the handsome douchey side character instead of the unattractive sensitive protagonist? I call bullshit. Oh wait, was I supposed to be comparing this to About a Boy? About a Boy is sweet, funny, and genuine. Hunchback is a mess of a film with clashing tones and ideas. About a Boy takes this round.
