So the story is about a man who commits suicide, becomes a cockroach poet and then falls in love with a cat.....Who was this made for?! It's too mature for kids and too stupid and nonsensical for adults.
now i read the other reveiw for this movie posted and in someways i agree but i think this movie has its place in the world of people like myself those who are old enough to uderstand these type of things yet are still young enough or young enough at heart to love the animation presented now im no professional but i thik they should maybe look the movie over again and see it for what it is an underated antique but yes i do think there were some scenes that could have been taken out like part where archy declares war that was completely pointless scene and does hurt the movie but i think this is one movie that like mahitabel herself should be left out of high society and not be bothered by serious reviews yes the movies bad from the reveiwers eye but its worth watching at least once to develop an opinion of those who can seperate themeselfs from the reveiwer and enjoy a movie without over analyzeing it 70 for a 70's movie for being boged down by the unessicerry scenes but having characters and music that catch you in and make this movie if anything negative a guilty pleasure
Only got about ten minutes into it. Way, way, way too weird, and that's coming from a Ralph Bakshi fan.
