Zany, exuberantly irreverent animated space adventure.
Fans of Plympton's shorts may marginally enjoy the film, but it is doubtful this listless feature will win him any new viewers.
It's a work by an artist so in control of both his medium and his message that he can improvise like a jazzman.
A new film from Bill Plympton, the animation master, is always welcome.
For the future, one hopes Mr. Plympton will find room for one more member of his little band, a professional screenwriter.
The director's twitchy sketchbook style and adroit perspective shifts grow wearisome amid leaden pacing and indifferent craftsmanship (most notably wretched sound design).
It's not without its pleasures, but I'll stick with The Tune.
Though this rude and crude film does deliver a few gut-busting laughs, its digs at modern society are all things we've seen before.
This slender plot feels especially thin stretched over the nearly 80-minute running time.
Outrageousness is all Plympton seemed to be going for this time. We miss the quirky amazement that used to come along for an integral part of the ride.
While the humor is recognizably Plympton, he has actually bothered to construct a real story this time.
Will no doubt delight Plympton's legion of fans; others may find 80 minutes of these shenanigans exhausting.
