Rarely is filmmaking of any kind this exuberant, this inventive or this entertaining.

Much of the visual comedy comes from the incongruous proportions of the bodies: skinny legs and puffed-out chests.

An amusing send-up of late '50s/early '60s high-school melodramas and teen-tragedy pop hits.

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.

Too glib to qualify as satire, Hair High nails the high school experience.

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.
