"This certainly isn't a good movie; I can't honestly say that I derived a good deal of pleasure watching it. But what's really gnawing at me is just how utterly stupid it is. It's really stupid. Really, really stupid. I know that by "stupid," we tend to mean that the filmmakers don't seem as worldly as us the audience, or even that they underestimated the breadth and depth of our sophistication. If The Adventures of the American Rabbit were stupid like that, then I think that I could begin to understand it. But no, The Adventures of the American Rabbit is stupid in the way that Herzog's red crabs are stupid. It's a living, breathing thing, but it's mindless."
