April 19, 2007
Plympton's fourth feature film is also his least inspired, but it's still very much worth a look.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 13, 2007
It's a wickedly fine ensemble and Plympton gives everyone free rein, which is no surprise from the creator of this irreverent, freewheeling delight.

Hair High is not for everyone, but it's not like anything else out right now.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 12, 2007
It's gross-out fare of the highest caliber.
February 9, 2007
Rarely is filmmaking of any kind this exuberant, this inventive or this entertaining.

January 12, 2007
It's probably time for Plympton -- who's been making films for nearly 30 years -- to try to do something a little loftier.

January 12, 2007
With sharp animation, funny gags and catchy songs, Hair High plays like the weirdest, and improbably sweetest, send-up of Grease you'll ever see.

Much of the visual comedy comes from the incongruous proportions of the bodies: skinny legs and puffed-out chests.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 23, 2006
The film spoils itself %u2014 and not in the way Plympton has spoiled his fans so much before.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 19, 2006
An amusing send-up of late '50s/early '60s high-school melodramas and teen-tragedy pop hits.
October 18, 2006
The monstrous images that are so effective in Plympton's short Plymptoons can be unpleasant at feature length and eventually overwhelm what is, at heart, a Grease-like teen-movie parody.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

None of this is for kids, and the way Plympton works clearly isn't for studios. It's just for grown-up fans of eye-catching animation.

In the gleefully outrageous animated feature Hair High, director Bill Plympton walks the border between ridiculously gross and outright offensive.

The taste meter on Hair High gets turned off somewhere around the halfway mark.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 17, 2006
Too glib to qualify as satire, Hair High nails the high school experience.
March 24, 2006
Demonstrates the problem with taking a singular animated style -- best seen in witty, small doses -- and extending it to a 78-minute feature that taxes one's patience.

When Plympton's freak flag flies, Hair High delivers the same whacked-out weirdness of his shorts. The rest of the film simply stretches out the simple premise...
Full Review | Original Score: C
April 17, 2004
Just remember all of the anxieties you had in high school and apply them to Plympton's twisted gray matter.

Hair High is the actually the artist's most cohesive 'story' to date...which means it's only about 35% weirder than any other sort of animation out there.
