While some of the 25 ways fell a bit flat, they came so fast and furiously that you probably won't notice!
20 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short by Bill Plympton was included on the PLIMPTOONS DVD. This 60 minute set of early Bill Plympton shorts is a must-see for animation freaks, but since it's not his latest stuff, such wonderful shorts as GUIDE DOG and PARKING aren't included. Most of the shorts are "fall on the floor laughing" funny and only a crabby old curmudgeon couldn't enjoy these films!

25 WAYS TO QUIT SMOKING has a few reviews that complained that some of the ways weren't all that funny. However, even when when a few of the ways weren't great, each segment appeared so quickly one after the other that I really don't think this was a problem. If one seemed a bit disappointing, you know that the next is bound to make you laugh out loud---and laugh out loud I did several times, as many of the "solutions" were very sadistic and cruel--just the sort of stuff I love!!

Funny, irreverent and exceptionally well made--this is a must-see for any fan of animation.
