Baskshi's last before he lost it. Tragic to the extreme.

Audience Reviews for Hey Good Lookin'


Like most Bakshi films, it's got a great soundtrack but even that can't save it from a lazy plot filled with unlikable characters.

Ah Bakshi, where to begin? Here, actually. Compared to his other works it walks a nice line between focused and sincere and...not. I'd recommend it as a good place to start the Bakshi experience. Maybe I'm actually saying that because it was the last one left on my Bakshi list. It certainly excels at the most enthralling quality that all his works share. That quality is not, however, being the only quasi-above ground american animator who works in sex and violence, but the only film maker I've seen who presents something that seems simultaneously flown by the seat of its pants and with surgical precision.

One of Ralph Bakshi's most underrated films in my opinion. This film is basically a satire about life in the 1950's in Brooklyn, but its strange style is what make it really entertaining. This film is humorous, dirty (It definitely earns its R-rating), and also dark with its violence and because it deals with racial issues at the time. However, the film fared poorly at the box office and has yet to see a DVD release (For shame Warner Bros. Oh well, I least I still have a VCR to watch it). This film is definitely a cult classic of animation that I highly recommend.
