Storyline

A messy bachelor's apartment is a paradise for the huge colony of cockroaches living there: no sprays, no traps, and plenty of food. When the homeowner's girlfriend moves in, however, the party comes to an abrupt end, and the roaches must quickly adapt to a life of struggling for survival. Combines animation with live actors. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Another one of those "oh it's so great" cult movies (dubbed)
9 June 2001 | by (Plattsmouth, NE) – See all my reviews

This is another one of those cult classics that everyone in "the know" claims is so great. Well, the backdrops (a sort of mixed bag of pop art collage and live action) are terrificly bizarre, the highlights (along with the story itself) of this equally mixed movie. Unfortunately, neither the animated cockroaches or the live action humans are anything special (Bing Crosby dancing with Jerry the mouse looks more realistic, so I won't bother comparing it to Roger Rabbit). I was constantly thrust out of "the dream." However, that was probably due to the awful English dubbing.
