Critic Reviews for Dumbland
It makes you wonder if Lynch doesn't occasionally abuse the benefit of the doubt
Lynch is referencing that most all-American of televisual genres, the sit-com, to show not only his nation's nightmarish underside of drooling, pugnacious idiocy, but also perhaps his own.
Audience Reviews for Dumbland
This is a mixed review from me. First off, the animation is supposed to be crude and terrible, as is the actual production value of the overall collection. But secondly, its so stupid it doesn't even really warrant a viewing unless you are a diehard fan of Lynch-related things. Having said that, of course much of this DVD is funny (the ant episode near the end in particular) and the amount of swearing and intensity of Lynch's own voice work is particularly amusing. Something, like his short film collection, to get high to, for sure.
So incredibly weird, but honestly it's one of the funniest cartoons i've ever seen. In all of the episodes there is something to love. The dad manages to be funny non-stop. Whether it is dialogue or actions, I just couldn't help but crack up. This is so filthy, but completely intentional. It does what things like King of the Hill and Beavis and Butthead wish they could do, truly represent the horrible side of human life.
okay...where to start, well hmmm this'll start it off great, David Lynch is completely fucked in the head, but that is where his amazing brilliance came up with such amazing movies like Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr. & Eraserhead. well in many ways, this is extremely hilarious (well to those with a screwed up sense of humor) i.e. "me". but you can find Dumbland on youtube or buy it on amazon, so definatley check this one out if your in the mood to laugh
