I’m sorry, but finding the abominable snowman and going on an adventure with your friends to take him home is not really what I would call original.

I mean, why was he on the roof in the first place? Ultimately, this movie just does not make any sense.

“Abominable” is the SEB’s latest film to be shown at the CUB Auditorium in December. Directed by Jill Culton, known for “Open Season,” and Todd Wilderman, the story follows three teens who try to save a Yeti from an evil rich guy.

As with many of these types of family-fun movies, “Abominable” includes a cookie-cutter villain with a bunch of hired help, who I might add all have guns, and the main characters manage to evade them all.

I mean, really?

I understand it is supposed to be a children’s film, but the plot is highly unrealistic even for children.

One of the good parts of this movie, however, was the ability of the director to create entire mini-story arcs for each character. Seeing them grow from one point to another over the course of the movie is truly a marvelous sight.

The music style was also well done. Many of the animals and actions in the movie have a very distinct sound to them, which is foreign, but hard to get out of your head.

I wish the movie had a more interesting plotline, but sometimes a good wholesome movie is what you need.

Overall I thought it was an OK movie, but I honestly probably wouldn’t go watch it again.

“Abominable” will be showing at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6; 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8 in the CUB Auditorium. Students with their Cougar Cards get in for free, otherwise tickets are $5 at the door.
