        There's no answer in the title's advertised book (doh!) ... rather its allowing the joy inherent in any moment to have its say, as some characters herein discover in this quirky and different stop-action animation feature. If you're in the mood, this'll do it.

        In "$9.99," Jim Peck has just had a horrible start to his day, first by not being able to hail a cab and then a disturbing encounter with a homeless man. His grown son Dave is unemployed and has just had a bad interview for a telemarketing job.(I agree with Camille that it is a lousy job, having personal experience in the field of telephone surveys.) So, Jim urges Dave to follow his brother into the lucrative repossessing business. "$9.99" is an engagingly offbeat stop-motion animated film that is intended for more mature audiences. It is not only the sex and language that warrant this caution but also the themes centered around loneliness.(The movie reinforces my theory that people who talk the most turn out to be the loneliest.) The Pecks are not the only household in the film missing a woman, either through death or a vanishing act, leading to melancholy for all. To escape the loneliness, it sometimes comes down to the crazy things we do for love. Otherwise, the characters go through the motions of their lives until either something very good or very bad happens and then the pattern repeats.

        + Great opening? Check. + A refreshing animation perspective? Check. + A good story to tell? Check. + Vivid, interesting and human characters? Check. + Anti-Hollywood? Check. + An amazing Geoffrey Rush? Check. Cons: + Shallow examinations. + Forgettable scenes. + A weak treatment. + Too short. + A screenplay that could've been exploited to its fullest. Conclusion? See it. 66/100

        Clay characters living in the same apartment block interact with each other. There's some unusual goings-on, especially between the repo man and his model girlfriends dislike of bodily hair, and between the immature boyfriend and his band of teeny tiny laddish friends, but somehow the whole thing fails to pull you in or make you engage with the characters. Maybe it would've worked better as a series of shorts which you could watch in turn and go "well, i never"
