Audience Reviews for The Point
The Point is an animated fable about Oblio, a boy who is shunned from his village since his round cranium lacks a point. Accompanied by Arrow, his faithful dog, Oblio encouters a colorful assortment of characters while learning a lesson about the nature of self. Enlivened by the quirky pop tunes of Harry Nilsson, The Point is a very likable kids movie with a good and honest moral. It also features sketchy animation that one seems to encounter only in the 1970's.
Pretty poorly done movie with horrid animation and added dialouge off a very good Harry Nilsson album.It feels like they were trying to go for a ripoff of Yellow Submarine but failed miserably. Probably best to stick to the album.
Good songs ("Me and My Arrow" repeats in my brain), sketchy stylized animation, and lots of characters without a point. A nice movie for children-of-hippies to sit down and enjoy.
