Storyline

In eight minutes, animator Bill Plympton gives us 24 vignettes: seven are clearly about sex, 10 about violence, and seven others deal with human frailties, particularly the body as it ages. There are three stories of persons with confused priorities (including a guy tying his shoe while parachuting); the world's first phone sex; and a clever, if dangerous, way to find a lost key. Except for the titles of each sketch and a couple of jokes that turn on noise, these are visual trips into the psyche of men, women, God, animals, and Time (the enemy of us all).

Very Sexy and Very Violent
9 September 2000 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

This unique collection of animated skits will have mostly everyone in stitches well before the film's eight minutes are up . This is one of Plympton's most famous short films, and in it we witness everything from "the world's first phone sex" to "the new extreme sport: lunar bungee jumping" in grim, colorful detail. The "Lost Key" and "People With Confused Priorities" sketches were what really got me to worship this man's wonderfully twisted sense of humor. Long live Bill Plympton!
