 3BlackChicks Review™...BICENTENNIAL MAN (Bams)
An aside to compare and contrast the effects of time on this reviewer: even at its short 94 minute length, I knew right away that I didn't like Stuart Little; in fact, right after the first 10 minutes or so, I was ready to book out tha house.
And are cars the only things that'll "change" over that time span, huh Chris?) and left me with more questions than answers (but unlike the higher-rated-than-it-should've-been Dogma, my itch to have those questions answered, isn't noticeable enough to make me pay to see BM again); still, it wasn't half-bad for an afternoon's worth of entertainment.
In a futuristic movie spanning two hundred years and taking two hours and twenty-five minutes to tell, I recalled seeing only one Black person: character actor Lynne Thigpen (though at least she was the leader of the World Congress - an organization the thought of which, by itself, makes me roll on the floor, laughing).
