The film is on a tight budget, and a few editing mistakes, despite that, I actually kind of like this movie. I really like the idea of Ralph Bakshi doing a sort of coming of age comedy set in the 1950's. While this film is not perfect, but there is some good dialogue here and a few cool characters. I think out of all the Bakshi films I've seen, this one might have my favorite ending.

Sure, it has problems, but I kinda liked this one despite my rating.
I want the original version through to appear on any Blu-ray format at some point, so I can compare the original to this version.

The animation is beautiful, yet the story lacks much substance or poignance, despite having an excellent voice cast to boot.

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.

Amazing Artwork For Its Time, A Little Over the Top In Its Sexuality But a True Representation Cuz So Were The Times.

there are many who dont like ralph bakshis movie but i do because they are so unique and very bizzare. This one is an interesting look at the 50s and once again another very odd ball movie

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.

Really a good flick to watch, I enjoy it every time I watch it.

Some parts are kinda weird and unexplained, but as a whole I found it visually stylish by its abstract look of 50s culture. Check it out if you love animation.

Though, I usually watched family-oriented animated films; but I guess, I am like wholesome vs taboo. I first encountered Ralph Bakshi's films when I was a teenager - I don't know how old. I started with "The Lord of The Rings;" then "Wizards," that film became my favorite Bakshi film. And then I watched on YouTube : "Fire & Ice," "Cool World" (live action/animated), "Heavy Traffic," and this film "Hey Good Lookin.'"

Well anyway, this film takes on a gritty,outrageous look at the Eisenhower era in Brooklyn, New York (the 1950s). And also about gang-leader Vinnie, his gang called the Stompers, his sexy girl Roz, his friend Crazy Shapiro; also, the all-out rumble with the black rival gang called the Chaplins.

I love the scene where we first meet Roz, it has a great homage to Tex Avery's "Red Hot Riding Hood" cartoons. I also love the part where Vinny screamed at the corpse buried in the sand, and all the Sicillians that are on the beach, dogpiled and beat up Shapiro (*LOL*) - that guy is TOO MUCH!

Some really great stuff in here but I would have liked to see the original hybrid live action/animation version that was finished first before the studio shelved it, forcing Bakshi to redo most of the film as straight animation.

Revives the spirit of Bakshi's early films.

This was a strange, but great animated movie. The animation and the soundtrack was great. The movie also has a nice 50's feel to it. But the movie is very boring and it just show's the main character's hanging out with their girlfreinds and also trying to stay out of trouble. But overall, if you're a Ralph Bakshi fan or looking for a good animated movie to watch, "Hey Good Lookin'" is worth giving a try.

A Ralph Bakshi animation film about rivalry gangs.

This movie is not all as great as some of Ralph's earlier work. But the animation is decent enought to look at. But other than that its not that great.

I hope to see it out on DVD soon.

This film features some of the most memorable characters and dialogue in Bakshi's filmography. Again, he presents us with an evocative, hilarious, disturbing and unique vision. This is one of his most beautifully animated films, and it is insanely entertaining.

Not Bakshi's best, but enjoyable especially for Bakshi fans...
