Animated action/adventure

Zach Galifianakis: Ben, the human handler of the G-Force team
Kellie Garner: his assistant Marcie
Sam Rockwell: voice of the squad leader Darwin
Penelope Cruz: voice of Juarez
Tracy Morgan: voice of weapons expert Blaster
Nicolas Cage: voice of Speckles, the team's computer expert
Bill Nighy: consumer-electronics magnate Leonard Saber
Jon Favreau: voice of Hurley, a pet shop guinea pig
Steve Buscemi: voice of Bucky, another pet shop rodent

With five people being given credit for the screenplay you would think it’s a dandy. It is anything but: the principal story line is confusing, the love interest part unfathomable, the plot structure is all jumbled and the dialogue dull and uninspired. An example: “get your face outta my butt”, “no, you get your butt outta my face”. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Obviously geared to kids but with no double entendre for parents to enjoy. In fact there is nothing even remotely funny despite the requisite rude bodily sounds. Truth be told, there is no fun at all having to sit though this mess.

for some mild action and rude humor.
