One of the best animated films ever!
8 February 1999 | by (Cuyahoga Falls, OH) – See all my reviews

This films belongs in some kind of hall of fame place, because nothing about this film is bad.

It tells the story of a man who needs to write the perfect song, if he doesn't he looses his job, his girl, and his life. Okay well maybe not his life. Then out of nowhere he ends up in the land of Floobie Noobie where he meets a lot of weird and off the wall people.

This film has some GREAT songs in it. I really love the song about HOME. This film is great, and I say get it! Do NOT just rent this film, buy it!

Between 1-10, this film gets a "9.9", (because what film is perfect?)
