Plympton's fourth feature film is also his least inspired, but it's still very much worth a look.

L.A. Weekly

It's gross-out fare of the highest caliber.

Dennis Harvey

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

Gary Goldstein

It's a wickedly fine ensemble and Plympton gives everyone free rein, which is no surprise from the creator of this irreverent, freewheeling delight.

Michael Booth
Denver Post

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

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.

It's probably time for Plympton -- who's been making films for nearly 30 years -- to try to do something a little loftier.
