Hair High is not for everyone, but it's not like anything else out right now.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
It's gross-out fare of the highest caliber.
Rarely is filmmaking of any kind this exuberant, this inventive or this entertaining.
| Original Score: 3/4
Much of the visual comedy comes from the incongruous proportions of the bodies: skinny legs and puffed-out chests.
An amusing send-up of late '50s/early '60s high-school melodramas and teen-tragedy pop hits.
None of this is for kids, and the way Plympton works clearly isn't for studios. It's just for grown-up fans of eye-catching animation.
In the gleefully outrageous animated feature Hair High, director Bill Plympton walks the border between ridiculously gross and outright offensive.
| Original Score: 4/5
Too glib to qualify as satire, Hair High nails the high school experience.
Demonstrates the problem with taking a singular animated style -- best seen in witty, small doses -- and extending it to a 78-minute feature that taxes one's patience.
| Original Score: 1/4
