I don’t know about you guys, but I’m excited for this. I mean, every time I see a pixar flick I think to myself, “This is great, but couldn’t this be more like National Treasure?” I mean, heartwarming tales of family are cool and all, but let’s give kids what they really want – wild adventure rides about solving the mysteries of the world; all contained in an ancient scroll hidden in Lady Liberty’s tampon. Ghost stories! Talking animals! Glib sidekicks! That’s what real filmmaking’s all about.
Tracy Morgan stars in "Somebody Gon’ Get Pregnant!" after the jump. Favorite line? "I’m the ooh-chow!"
