Watch out for The Villain

I got The Villain from Netflix recently to watch with my son. I saw it when I was his age and dug it a lot. Hey, it was a bunch of cartoony gags and Ann-Margret.

Brody wasn't very interested at first, but the more he recognized the Wile E. Coyote-style shenanigans, he paid more attention until after each one, he'd ask, "Now what is he going to do?"

He was so enthralled by the end that he sat next to me on the couch and said, "Let's watch this together." I'm glad he did, because the look on his face when he saw the last gag of the movie (with some very familiar music for him) was priceless. His jaw was agape, his mouth showing both surprise and happiness.
