One of the best...
5 July 2004 | by (North Carolina, United States) – See all my reviews

Definitely one of the best adult animated films ever made. I just don't understand why it is not available to buy on DVD OR VHS. We used to rent this film quite often back in the late 80's, but I have never seen it available for purchase ANYWHERE. Why is this? I found Ralph Bakshi's "Wizards" on VHS after years of searching. I have "Heavy Metal" on DVD. Why won't they make this available to us???????? This film is hilariously funny. The animation is awesome, and the story line is just too good! Complete senseless fun, and I would LOVE to show it to my kids now that they're grown. It sure would be nice to have even a limited re-release of this film so a whole new generation would be able to enjoy it.
