Consensus: A weird, misfiring, Norwegian animated mess of a film. Unsure of who its target audience is, it misses every target.

This adult-orientated, computer-generated animation isn't an especially successful outing but still serves as an impressive antidote to the Disney-Pixar norm.

But the characters don't add to the conception. Nor does the basic animation.

Really weird and not my kind of movie at all, despite the fact that it has actors like Woody Harrelson and Kyle McLachlan doing the voice-overs. As for the many… More

Cool animation and interesting feel. Worth seeing once under the influence.

A dark and tragic animated comedy. The bleak humour I found to be quite funny, and the whole grim outlook turns animatd films upside down. This is certainly… More
