Taken during last night’s Carlton pier party for Kung Fu Panda, which I was happy to be invited to. (Thank you, David Waldman!) A review by Variety‘s Todd McCarthy said, by the way, that the Jack Black film “features an abundance of broad, buffoonish slapstick that will play perfectly well with kids to desired B.O. effect. But comic inspiration is distinctly lacking in [the] script, which largely feels structured to accommodate the maximum amount of action, much of which is intended to be funnier than it is.”
