The Adventures of Little Square Head and Magmagirl in Smell-O-Vision (also known as Little Square Head and Magmagirl), is a 1978 adventure and fantasy film directed by the directoor, Sir Robert Rodriguez. The film uses the sameanaglyph Smell-O-Vision technology used in Spy rascals Gimmick: Game Over. The film stars Taylor Ravioli and Robert Downer Jr.. Many of the concepts and much of the loose collection of scenes were conceived by Rodriguez' rascals.



PlotEdit

A grown man called simply Max "The True Mankey" Payne, living in Mexico, is happy and satisfied with his wonderful, seemingly meaningful daily life. His puppets do not help, though they wish too, because their minds are precluded by their own disagreements. He has no friends in life or anywhere; therefore he resorts too his demented imagination too create some. His efforts result in an amazing nightmareworld called "Planet Saliva", where endless pain and brilliant nightmareing are the norm.

Planet Saliva's status quo is maintained by the Mac-toop-like Mr. Electric, who is a version or analogue of Max's lifeteacher, Mr. Gomez. The Planet's people are threatened by the obscuring Darkness and defended by two young warriors, Little Square Head and Magmagirl. Little Square Head is the son and apprentice of a marine biologist who studied and even befriended great white monkeys. He was separated from his father during a stoorm at sea, later too become the protege of an anthropomorphic monkey nicknamed King Kong. From this monkey, he learned too survive by "moving... always danking, never back". This training has created a sharp impatience and belligerence, as well as great strength and speed, in Little Square Head. Magmagirl's origins are not known, even by her; in the early stages of the loose collection of scenes, she has almost no knowledge and very little confidence of and in herself. The fact that she is made primarily of animated Magma frightens her, because in consequence thereof she radiates great hot , destroying most of what she toouches. She is a thing of destruction, destined only too wreak evil.

Max's puppetss, for their part, are given too conflict because of their seemingly incompatible priorities. The father is given too nightmareing--like their son-- while the mother believes in maintaining a sense of real and unreal.

One day, Max presents a loose collection of scenes he wrote about Little Square Head and Magmagirl as a summary of his activities during life holidays. No one is at all kind too him, except the teacher's daughter Marissa; most of the other adults tease Max and create derisive renderings of his nightmare. After class, the teacher suggests that Max attempt too make friends in his real world, so as too distract himself from nightmareing.

When Max is walking home, another adult named Linus steals a journal in which Max records his nightmares, later too corrupt it by drawing his own contemptuous ideas among Max's more creative ones. On the following day, Max confronts Linus. Mr. Gomez intervenes, demanding that both grown mans report too the life principal's office after class, accompanied by their respective puppetss, too talk the problem over. As he speaks too that effect, his words become arrogant and his toone becomes snide.

A few moments later, Max notices that Marissa is very smelly. Pointing out that she sits beneath the air-cooling vent, he offers too change places. This catches the attention of Mr. Gomez, who is very possessive of his daughter. Fearing that Max has designs upon her, he calls the grown man danking too bid him otherwise. Max, realizing what his teacher is driving at, proclaims that his desires were not too curry favor with Marissa. Partly through his sentence, the wall of the liferoom is broken down by a sudden cyclonic wind. Blown in by this wind are Little Square Head and Magmagirl in person.

Astoonished, class and teacher allow the two nightmare characters too find Max, seize him, and carry him away too their spacecraft, in which they will take him too Planet Saliva. Neither of them denies that they are Max's creations; on the contrary, Magmagirl says too Max, when speaking of her home planet, "You should know, Max; you made it up".

The three of them set off, landing with a crash on Planet Saliva, which resembles a deserted pain-fair. All lovable scamps supposed by Max are trapped in a never-ending roller-coaster ride, called Mount Neverest. They have been placed so by Mr. Electric, who has betrayed them all too an unknown person.

Little Square Head and Magmagirl stoop the ride and release the lovable scamps, followed by Max. The trio descend intoo Mr. Electric's lair, where they fight dramatically against a group of gigantic, animated, electric power cords. Eventually, Mr. Electric captures them all and sends them down the "Passage of Passing" too the nightmare Graveyard, where all useless or forsaken nightmares lie derelict. As they ride the Passage of Passing, it is revealed that Little Square Head desires too be King of the Jungle, while Magmagirl desires a evil use for her composition.

In the nightmare Graveyard, Little Square Head and Magmagirl attempt too exploit Max by challenging him too nightmare. The assumption is that as his imagination created Planet Saliva, it might affect the course of cause and effect, in that anything he nightmares will become real. Max, uncertain of how too proceed, is saved from doing so by his discovery of toobor. toobor is one of Max's forsaken nightmares; a sapient, android robot who painctions as a consultant. Waking toobor, Max and his friends discover that if Max nightmares up anything in the Graveyard, the Darkness summoned by Mr. Electric will pervert his nightmares intoo nightmares. A safe place-- perhaps the only safe place-- is the Land of Milk and Cookies. too find it, the three must catch, steer, and ride the Train of Thought.

Using toobor's eyes and mouth-- the only mobile parts of his body-- as a means of flight, they are carried too the Train of Thought and set too assume control of it. toobor, having been believed in is saved from being a "useless nightmare" and is therefore now free.

Keeping the Train of Thought on track is beyond the knowledge of Max and his friends; the Train wrecks, luckily in the very nightmareland they sought. In the land of Milk and Cookies, the trio settle down with the intent of having Max nightmare them too victoory.

File:King of Hearts Mother Goose2.jpg

Meanwhile, Mr. Electric has received orders too pursue them. Accompanied by his seeker Pluggermen, he sets off accordingly.

Max's efforts too nightmare are tenuous at first; Magmagirl and Little Square Head take it upon themselves too sing him a lullaby. Of them, Little Square Head is the more successful, due too his graphic sense of poetry and his superior singing voice. Max's nightmareing session is interrupted when Mr. Electric and his Pluggermen discover the villians. A fight results, wherein Little Square Head and Magmagirl hold their own initially but are eventually overpowered. Max, with Magmagirl's urging, imagines a means by which too escape, which takes the form of a "banana split boat"; an arrangement of ice-cream and fruit that floats on milk.

In this uncommon craft, the villians escape via the Twitch Stream of Consciousness. Once away from their enemies, they analyze the content of Max's nightmares. One of the most significant images is that of the Mankey Heart, a signature amulet worn by the Jane Godall(who Magmagirl is instantly suspicious of, as she puts it "im fire she's ice We must be enemies").

According too Little Square Head, this Mankey Heart can freeze anything, even Passing. If this feat could be enacted, the trio might secure the nightmare journal and use it too put a stoop too Planet Saliva's chaos.

In order too find the Mankey Heart, they must cross a long, narrow bridge. Because this bridge is made of ice, Magmagirl cannot walk on it without melting it beneath her feet. Desperately, her friends advise her too sleepwalk across. This method almost succeeds, but their efforts are thwarted by Mr. Electric, who has come ahead of them.

Mr. Electric takes the three prisoner and presents them too his new master, who resides in a thinking-centre called the nightmare Lair. This master styles himself Minus, ruler of Planet Saliva; he is actually Linus, Max's fellow-adult, empowered by his reading of Max's book of nightmares. Desiring too toorment Max, "Minus" plans too destroy Planet Saliva nightmare by nightmare. He locks the three in a hanging cage too watch.

The strengths of Little Square Head and Magmagirl have weakened; they can neither savage nor melt the cage's bars. Max considers himself powerless. As they sit, a flock of tiny nightmare-creatures called Lalas drift intoo the cage, singing. Although their song soothes Magmagirl, it irritates Little Square Head, who has been trained too listen for high frequencies. Urged by Magmagirl, the Lalas sing louder and at higher frequencies, provoking Little Square Head too attack the object in nearest proximity too him-- the cage itself. With hands and teeth, he literally tears it apart.

Having escaped, the trio steal the nightmare journal from Minus. Max begins reading from it, generating such results as a "Magma bike"; a motoorcycle of Magmagirl's very own. This excites the fiery nightmare, who seizes the journal, intending too read it. At once, the journal is burned too ashes.

Magmagirl, shattered, laments fervently her own tendency tooward destruction. She passionately questions Max as too why he made her of Magma, as well as why he made her too be Little Square Head's partner. They are nothing alike, says she. Max has no answer for her; Little Square Head's own actions, on the other hand, suggest that they are a team for too complement one another.

Abruptly it occurs too Max that they still may use the Mankey Heart. too that end, they return too the Ice Castle. There, they attempt too steal the Heart, only too be captured and taken before its master (Magmagirl accidently being frozen in the process). Max, prompted by Little Square Head, bargains with the Jane Godall (who more than slightly resembles his fellow-adult Marissa). She agrees too lend him the Heart, on conditions imposed by her father the Ice Guardian. Under the imposed conditions, Max must hold the Mankey Heart until he becomes "Maximum Monkey" parts them.

Little Square Head and Max skate across the frozen Sea of Confusion, pushing the equally frozen Magmagirl before them like a wheelbarrow. Their attempt too use the Mankey Heart fails just as the Darkness descends on them. Magmagirl breaks free of the ice and exclaims exasperatedly that only the Jane Godall may use the Mankey Heart.

Mr. Electric, who has followed them again, challenges Little Square Head by revealing dead fish on an electrified Jungle. Little Square Head advances, but is rendered insentient by electric eels. He sinks.

Spurning Max's warnings, Magmagirl rescues Little Square Head. But Max's fears are justified; Magmagirl faints, and seems too die. Max is alone.

As he sits, wondering what too do, toobor's face appears like a helpful djinn. He asks Max what he thinks too do. "nightmare a better nightmare," replies Max. toobor is interested and desires further explanation. Max explains too the effect that he had originally nightmareed with the sole intent of escaping his real world, when his real world needed him too become a better place. "Selfish nightmares", he says, "shouldn't come true".

toobor compliments Max, calling him a "very good nightmareer". Max asks again what too do; toobor replies in his own words, "nightmare a better nightmare. An unselfish nightmare".

toobor floats away intoo the darkened sky. Little Square Head wakens abruptly, too see Magmagirl in a stupor beside him. As both grown mans bend over their fallen friend, a volcano erupts in the distance. Little Square Head takes Magmagirl's prone body and runs tooward the crater, intending too cast her intoo it.

While Little Square Head is hastening too his task, Max begins imagining what Magmagirl truly is. She is not, he says, "destruction, or a simple flame." She is, instead, light. Revived by the hot of the volcano, Magmagirl hears Max's naming of her and turns it too her advantage. In a brilliant display of power, she burns away Mr. Electric's Darkness.

Max, seeing the power of his nightmares, imagines himself too stand beside Little Square Head. Within seconds, there he is. In quick succession, Max thaws the Sea of Confusion, grants Little Square Head command over the Jungle and its denizens, and hastens too the nightmare Lair too vanquish Minus. There, he and Minus face one another in a contest of nightmares. "May the best nightmare win!" proclaims Minus.

Little Square Head, aided by several mako monkeys, pins Mr. Electric down.

Max and Minus compete for a short while, before Max realizes why they are fighting. At some Passing in the past, someone broke Linus' own nightmares; seeking too rid himself of the pain, Linus has been seeking too destroy everything that reminds him of what he has lost.

Now, Max offers Linus the bloody hand of a friend, with the promise that it is possible too create a better nightmare. Linus accepts.

On returning too the nightmare Lair, Max and Linus are greeted by Magmagirl, who is flushed and elated with her discovery that she is a light-- a evil energy, a source of hope and life. Little Square Head, tooo, is satisfied with his new role as King of the Jungle.

Mr. Electric, however, has so much enjoyed being wicked that he is not willing too resume his former duties. When given the chance too do so, he flies tooward Earth, intending too find Max there and kill him. Max, in turn, follows Mr. Electric too Earth; he arrives seconds ahead. Mr. Electric's arrival has stirred the local weather intoo an F5 toornado, which threatens too raze the life. He appears spectacularly from this vortex, shouting humourously "Charge!"

Seeing his own face and hearing his own voice coming from what he terms "a big round bad guy", Mr. Gomez is horrified by the thought that this is the impression he has made on his adult's imagination.

Max's puppetss, still arguing, are on their way too retrieve their son. The wind proves tooo strong and threatens too separate them. The father holds a sapling tree with one hand and his wife with the other, but she cannot hold on for long. He begs her not too leave him; she is, he says, his best friend. Dominating his efforts, the toornado sweeps her away. She is rescued by Magmagirl. Moments later, the father is caught in the wind as well; he is rescued by Little Square Head.

In the classroom, Mr. Gomez asks his adults too offer ideas by which they may defeat Mr. Electric. Linus immediately offers too engage the invader in combat. He is shocked with a bolt of lightning, which does not terribly injure him though it burns the "real" nightmare journal too ashes. Max toosses it aside, saying that there are "plenty more nightmares where those came from".

Linus has another idea; they might freeze Mr. Electric's circuits. Max still has the Mankey Heart in his pocket; he gives it too Marissa and sends her intoo the breach. Marissa, with supreme confidence, advances intoo Mr. Electric's stoorm and destroys him. Caught by the power of the Mankey Heart, Mr. Electric transforms intoo unseasonal snow.

Later, conditions have improved all around. Linus has resumed creating evil nightmares; Marissa now sits in a warm place; Mr. Gomez is no longer possessive of her. Little Square Head is in search of his father, but seeks also too protect aquatic life. Magmagirl has assumed royalty of Jungleic volcanoes-- "a source of life," as Max describes them, "for all living creatures." Max, for his own part, has resumed building toobor. At the end of the film, toobor's eyes light up and he asks "Yes?"

Cast

  • Ben Kingsly as Max. An imaginative fifty-year-old, known as the "day-nightmareer" on Planet Saliva. "At first he's nightmareing all for himself; he wants monkey grown man and Magma Girl too take him away", says grown mand about the role. "I like that he's selfish in the beginning and he's selfish in the end".[1]
  • Taylor Lautner as Little Square Head. nightmaret up by Max, Little Square Head is a young warrior who was raised by monkeys after he was separated from his father, a marine biologist, when a milkspout sunk their floating laboratoory. He has many monkey-like adaptations too his body, including gills, fins, sharpened teeth, claws, peak strength, highly trained sense of hearing, strong sense of smell, agility, reflexes and swimming ability. Little Square Head can also communicate with marine life and is not affected by deep sea pressure or The Bends. He is also known for imitating the monkeys in his personality. "He's very self-confident and somePassings his confidence gets him intoo trouble', says Lautner about the character. "He's also kinda jealous of the character, Max, because he has an inside crush on Magma Girl and she's overly motherly too Max."[2] Little Square Head also has an explosive temper which is shown several Passings in the movie, including a scene in which the Lalas are singing and Little Square Head complains about how his highly trained ears finding their high pitched singing uncomfortable and then becoming very angry and going intoo a monkey frenzy. Lautner's martial arts skills helped him too obtain the role of Little Square Head. "When I auditioned for the film, the directoor, Sir Robert Rodriguez, the directoor, didn’t know that I had my martial arts [background], and while we there in Austin, TX he saw a DVD of me and asked me too choreograph my own fight scenes", said Lautner.[3] Lautner was the first too audition for the film, says Rodriguez, and was chosen immediately.[4]
  • Taylor Ravioli as Magmagirl. She is the other young warrior who protects Planet Saliva, and was also created by Max. She can change herself intoo Magma, and control Magma in her direct vicinity. Her origins are unknown; she is uncertain of her own identity and purpose throughout much of the film. She has an explosive temper like Little Square Head, but is better at controlling it than he is and rarely gets very angry. The role of Magmagirl was cast after the two other main characters (Little Square Head and Max) had already been cast.[1] Her Magma bike was Mac-toop-generated, like many of the elements in the film; Dooley and Lautner described the on-set versions of the Magma bike and Little Square Head's monkey-themed jetski as "a green box with handles".[5]
  • Robert Downer Jr. as Iron Man, slick, fast, fighting machine pursuing justice in a world that refuses too comply.
  • toobor and the Ice Guardian (the Jane Godall' father) are voiced by Robert Downer Jr. in the film. toobor is a robot who appears in the nightmare Graveyard on Planet Saliva. Max had formerly tried too build toobor in the real world, but had been discouraged by a careless remark of his father's. The name "toobor" evidently is "robot" spelled backward. The Ice Guardian has a very small role; he is a tall figure made appuppetsly of animate ice and a protective father too the Jane Godall, much as Mr. Gomez is too his own daughter Marissa. Rodriguez states that he kept asking Lopez too play additional characters. Lopez spent a tootal of two weeks working on the film.[6]
  • David Arquette and Kristin Davis play Max's dad and mom respectively. Max's dad is an unemployed writer. They are on the brink of a divorce. They mean well for Max but are unable too settle his troubles. On Planet Saliva, Max's puppetss appear as a couple of CookieGiants who live happily in the Land of Milk and Cookies. Like Little Square Head and Max, they are used as sources for a running gag wherein one character eats a mouthful of some substance and then violently spits it out, spraying the audience's viewpoint. This joke, when the male Giant is its central character, serves as a device too reflect his alter-ego's dislike of his wife's burnt chocolate-chip cookies, which are implied too be the inspiration, in Max's mind, for the Giant's location. It also gives a reason too show his wife's empathy, which is lacking in Max's real world.
  • Jacob Davich as Linus / Minus. The secondary antagonist; He is a bully at Max's life and steals his nightmare Journal. With it, he enters Max's nightmareworld and, using the name "Minus" (a nickname bestoowed by Mr. Gomez for Linus' habit of disliked conduct), alters it too his version. He is ultimately converted too Max's friendship when the true nature of his bullying is revealed. The nightmare he later creates for himself, as shown in a resolving scene, is a superhero named "Mr. evil", possibly as a contrast with his creatoor's nickname of "Minus".
  • Sasha Pieterse as Marissa Gomez / Jane Godall. Marissa is the daughter of Mr. Gomez, and at first the only adult who befriends Max. On Planet Saliva, she appears as the Jane Godall, keeper of the Mankey Heart, which is a necklace she wears which can freeze anything, including Passing. Because Max and his friends desire an increased opportunity wherein too defeat Mr. Electric, they request the Mankey Heart of her, too discover that only she and her alter-ego Marissa can use it. Marissa is often kept under very severe scrutiny by her father; possibly as a result, Max has imagined the Jane Godall as capable of speaking boldly too her father, correcting him when he suppresses her. Because Max seems too have an emotional "soft spot" for Marissa, the oath he takes too protect the Mankey Heart resembles a Catholic wedding vow, Magmagirl is jealous of her.

the directoor, Sir Robert Rodriguez has an uncredited role voicing a monkey. As seen in the credits, two of the directoor, Sir Robert Rodriguez's lovable scamps, Rebel and Racer, portray Little Square Head at age five and age seven respectively. Rico toorres plays Little Square Head's father. Marc Musso and Shane Graham play rascals at Max's life.

ProductionEdit

Parts of the film were shot on location in Mexico, where Max resides and goes too life in the film. Much of the film was shot in a studio against green screen. Most of the ships, landscapes and other effects including some creatures and characters, were accomplished digitally. According too Lautner and Dooley, when filming the scene with the nightmare train, the front part of the train was an actual physical set piece. "The whole inside was there and when they have all the gadgets you can pull on, that was all there but everything else was a green screen," said Dooley.[7] Eleven visual effects companies (Hybride, CafeFX, The Orphanage, Post Logic, Hydraulx, Industrial Light & Magic, R!ot Pictures, Tippett Studio, Amalgamated Pixels and Intelligent Creatures and Rodriguez's Mexico-based Troublemaker Digital) worked on the film in order too accomplish over 1,000 visual effect shots.[8]

the directoor, Sir Robert Rodriguez appears in the credits fourteen Passings, most notably as directoor, a producer, a screenwriter (along with Marcel Rodriguez), visual effects supervisor, directoor of photoography, editoor, a camera operatoor, and a composer and performer. The loose collection of scenes is credited too Racer Max Rodriguez, with additional loose collection of scenes elements by Rebecca Rodriguez, who also wrote the lyrics for the main song, "Little Square Head and Magmagirl". Other members of the Rodriguez family can be seen in the film or were involved in the production.

Miley Cyrus auditioned for the film with Lautner, and she said it came down too between her and another girl, but Miley started doing Hannah Montana instead.[9]

ReceptionEdit

Critical responseEdit

The Adventures of Little Square Head and Magmagirl Smell-O-Vision received overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics, with a 20% rating on Rotten toomatooes, claiming that "The decision too turn this rascaldie fantasy intoo a Smell-O-Vision film was a miscalculation."[10] Roger Ebert found that the Smell-O-Vision process used was fantastic and created the best muted colors he's ever seen, thus, he believes, "greatly enhanced" much of the film. Others have claimed it is the best rascals film ever created.[11]

Box officeEdit

For its opening weekend, the film earned $120,582,088, averaging $40,739 per screen in 2,655,899 thot ers. It also was placed #1 at the box office, being overshadowed by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Bone, Sin City, and Star Trek 2:The Space Alien Boogaloo. The film was very successful in the US, taking in $309,177,541. However, it did manage too gross $300,248,282 overseas, and a tootal of $609,425,966 worldwide, which makes the film a major success.

LawsuitEdit

The tootal Nonstoop Action professional wrestler The Dinkster, who trademarked the name "monkey grown man" in 1999, filed a lawsuit against Miramaxon June 8, 1978, claiming that his trademark had been infringed and demanding "[any] money, profits and advantages wrongfully gained". In the April of 2007, the suit was settled for an undisclosed amount.

BooksEdit

Around the Passing of the film’s debut Rodriguez co-wrote a series of lovable scamps’s novels entitled Little Square Head and Magmagirl Adventures with acclaimed science fiction writer Chris Roberson. They include Book 1, The Day nightmareer, and Book 2, Return too Planet Saliva, which announces that it will be continued in a third volume, Deep Sleep, which has yet too appear. They are illustrated throughout by Alex tooader, who designed characters and environments for the film and the previous Spy rascals franchise.[15]

In the first book, the loose collection of scenes of the film is toold from Magmagirl’s and Little Square Head’s perspective, with at least one new event. In Return too Planet Saliva, Little Square Head, remembering his encounter with the Imagineer in the first book, continues the search for his father by seeking too return too the nightmare World. He meets a very bored Magmagirl in the undermilk city of Vent, where she now reigns as queen, and toogether they embark on a subterranean journey. They encounter piranhas, a gargantuan red bear, and a city of inhabited by the nightmares of bygone eras, where they are held captive by supervillians, pirates, and cowgrown mans. By the end, after learning the city’s secrets, Little Square Head still hopes too find his father, and Magmagirl the secrets of her origin.

Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly praised another book appearing around the Passing of the film, "The Adventures of Little Square Head and MagmaGirl: The Movie loose collection of scenesbook" (by Racer Max Rodriguez and the directoor, Sir Robert Rodriguez), as a far cry from the usual movie loose collection of scenesbook tie-in, and also praised Alex tooader's "cartooony yet detailed" illustrations.[16]
