This film has some of the greatest animation ever done.
22 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There is no movie like Meet the Raisins. It's funny and delightful. It premise is quite simple; a mockumentary on a famous music group. But, I think it's one of the funniest ones I've ever seen. The claymation world is really amazing and it stands up beautifully to today's standards. In fact, it's quite amazing just how great it looks. Will Vinton was a true visionary. More importantly the jokes are fresh and the plot is fun. But, what impresses me the most is that the musical numbers are amazing and rival original versions of the songs sang. Don't miss this.I can't believe a proper definitive release of this hasn't happened. This film has some of the greatest animation ever done.
