    Maybe the self-consciously stoopid humor works better in microbursts, but at 75 minutes it's a total drag.

    Absolutely love this movie, stylish, classy and greatly humorous. The animation style is great and almost adds to the comedy. The charactersAbsolutely love this movie, stylish, classy and greatly humorous. The animation style is great and almost adds to the comedy. The characters are memorable and unique each in their own way. The film is full of surreal hilarity that runs all the way through the movie. The film doesn't have to make sense and it knows that, it just has to be a silly animated comedy. Would love to see a sequel to this! Even though it is a foreign language it is still easy to watch with most friends.
    And also, your stoner mates will love this, trust me.

Indeed the animation is quite different from American-sanitized frame by frame. Even better, there are subplots that make this a film for grownups to enjoy with kids. It resembles much some dream outing you designed while in Kindergarden. This is so familiar, it has everything for your enjoyment. Full Review »
