By all accounts, this shouldn't be a great movie, or even a good one for that matter. And yet, I was amazed at how quickly I accepted the premise, the place, and the people in this wacky world. This is a carefully controlled, purposefully constructed film from start to finish. They created a world where all this lunacy makes perfect sense, and they didn't deviate from that one iota. I think that's why it works. They had a conviction and went with it.....with wild abandon. Everything matches, all the performances, the story, even the cartoon music that accompanies it; everything is pitch-perfect. It's hard not to have a begrudging admiration for what they made. They made a BIG head believable, and more importantly, funny.
This is one time I'm glad I took a chance and went with all the glowing reviews posted here. I wouldn't have missed the opportunity to see this movie for anything. Bonus, I get to keep it for future viewing!
