Loud....very, very loud!
30 October 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is NOT a particularly subtle film and when it first begins your senses are assaulted with very, very loud and boisterous singing. In fact, everything about this film seems very, very loud--the art style, the story and the ladies who constantly blather like they are drunk frat boys! In fact, through much of the story, there isn't any real dialog--just loud riotous noise.

As for the story, it might have been able to overcome the brashness of the art if it had been a very strong narrative. However, there just isn't much story---it's just a middle aged lady going out with her obnoxious co-workers to yell and hoot at a male stripper. None of this seemed all that entertaining. Watching the film was like going to a fancy dinner where they forget to give you the entrée. You are just kept waiting and waiting for more.

If you try "Dreams and Desires: Family Ties" (also by the same director), you'll probably leave more satisfied. This amusing cartoon will probably make you laugh and shows that her talents have matured over time.
