  • The story is stuffed with exaggeration, elongation, elaboration, but it's all in the service of making a commonplace circumstance - love - look like it feels when it happens to you, i.e. the very opposite of commonplace.

  • Plympton will be cheated if "Cheatin'" doesn't at least get nominated for a best animated feature Oscar.

  • The whole range of human emotion - love, lust, anger, jealousy, despair, grief - is felt through Plympton's animation. It's just a shame that his boundless creativity doesn't extend to the narrative.

  • The film is extremely rich in visual inventiveness and depth of feeling -- with numerous sequences that could almost pass muster as individual shorts.

    Apr 16, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Bill Plympton's latest feature-length animation, about a loving couple riven by infidelity, contains some of his loveliest fantasy sequences, though the gap between his visual and storytelling skills persists.

    Apr 9, 2015 | Full Review…
  • At times it comes to life, but for the most part it's a bit one-note and repetitive.
