They lick each other, they kill everyone they love, they show butt-cheek, they demonstrate sexual attraction to fire hydrants…I laugh more and more thinking back on the time I was told Topless Robot couldn’t attend the Despicable Me 2 press junket because “it’s a kid’s movie.”
Indeed – French animators’ idea of a kid’s movie. Which pretty much means anything goes.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
