It is so really good Hugo¿? I feel weird with Martin doing this kind of films. But after all what can you expect¿? They gave him a Oscar (for a remake) after too much denial from the Academy and now this child´s movie¿? mmm, I wonder if the next thing will be Martin doing comedy. Well, beside After Hours and The King of Comedy, I´m expecting something in the verge of Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Steve Carrell or Adam Sandler.....
