'Splice' Synopsis

Superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, Clive and Elsa secretly take their boldest experimentation underground–risking their careers by pushing the boundaries of science to serve their own curiosity and ambition.

The result is Dren, an amazing, strangely beautiful creature of uncommon intelligence and an array of unexpected physical developments.

At first, Dren exceeds their wildest dreams. But as she grows and learns at an accelerated rate, her existence threatens to become their worst nightmare.

    i find it amusing that this movie is being scoffed at by people who think "twilight" was an awesome movie instead of trite fodder that panders to whiny teeners and their terrible tastes.

    i don't know how good or bad this movie will be, but i know that when kids who love movies that i loathe say something will be horrid, it will most definitely be watchable and entertaining.
