If you read the books or watched the movies about Pippi Longstocking as a kid, you probably regard her as a kind of hero anyway. Smart, incredibly strong and passionate for adventure, Pippi's adventures have been filmed in several languages... but never like this!
Enter the folks at Funny or Die, who have turned the adventures of cool kid Pippi into a gun-toting, high-octane smash starring Milla Jovovich rocking her most badass role since Alice from Resident Evil. It's also pretty funny, too...
Our hero arrives - that silhouette is so recognizable!
Oh, wait, KABLOOIE! Everything changes!
Pippi is 'The Most Box Office Crushingest Hero in Town.' She is Milla Jovovich. She is... CRIMSON JUSTICE!
She has a chimp buddy who's an expert in explosives!
And a dude who fires lightning out of his butt!
And ample cleavage!
Viewer reactions may range from 'LOL' to 'WTF' to 'I hate it,' but it's good to see a beloved children's classic is still popular, even if it is used to pastiche big bucks Hollywood movie pitching.
