Honestly, it does sound like fun -- sort of Jumanji meets Mad Magazine. Remember all those back-page ads in comics and kids mags that would give you seemingly immense power for only a couple of bucks? Well, Fun focuses on "two childhood friends who ordered a slew of novelty toys (such as X-ray glasses, Sea-Monkeys, and transforming robots) from the back pages of their late-'70s comic books. Thirty years later, the toys begin living up to their wild advertising claims, forcing the pair to save their town from ensuing chaos."
The best family movies usually merge old-school memories for the adults with funky stories for the kids, so this has a lot of potential. I just wonder how the Sea Monkeys fit in. Will they grow bigger so people can actually see them? Or will the little buggers slip into the drinking water while a poor sap tips the glass to take a drink?
My head's buzzing with all the old-school toy possibilities. What novelties would you like to see come to life?
