You remember Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amelie (2001), the lovely, quirky, and colorful film featuring many close-ups of interesting human faces? Well, he's back with a quirky and colorful film featuring many close-ups of interesting human faces.

The fit every color in this bad boy.

You know how you haven't heard anything about Jean-Pierre Jeunet since Amelie (2001)? Well, there's probably a reason for that.

Or maybe you have, I don't know.

Bigbug is a sci-fi comedy about household appliances gaining sentience, and using their sentience to defend the humans against the murderous government drone androids that also happened to become sentient at the same time.

A house meeting to discuss if we should continue watching this film.

It's also a romantic comedy.

Which just makes things worse.

Unfortunately for us, it's a long series of overtly sexual slapstick jokes that start off uninteresting and repetitive right from the intro, and don't get any better.

It would have made an ok short film.

The best thing about it is the vacuum cleaner.

We also get colorful close-ups of interesting robot faces.

It's nice that Jean-Pierre has discovered CGI and sci-fi.

It must have had a huge CGI budget.

Next time, maybe he'll discover good writing.

or nature documentaries.
