Jennifer's thirtieth birthday party is supposed to be a special day. But what starts out as a day of celebration quickly spirals into a most ill-fated day Jennifer wishes she could forget, in this ensemble comedy set entirely in a kitchen.
At one point in the film, Zebulon is listening to Pitch Black Manor on a car stereo, claiming his own band once toured with them. Pitch Black Manor was writer/star Chad Fifer's band in high school and college. See more »
Having seen The Chosen One online very recently, I was looking forward to it anyway but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I mean I figured I would, but this much? I am a fan of animation, and loved the style used. It is a colourful and unique style with good character designs and fluid background art. The soundtrack is fitting and memorable, and while the story is perhaps not groundbreaking in a way effort is made to not make it too bland, formulaic or predictable.
When it comes to the humour, The Chosen One is hilarious. The dialogue is clever and sharp, with a touch of cynicism and quirkiness too. The characters are engaging and quite eccentric, my personal favourite being Lucifer for how dapper and sinister he is. The voice acting is terrific, Chad Fifer is appealing, Chris Sarandon is hilarious, Danielle Fishel is suitably sassy and Lance Henrikssen is interesting and distinctive. Best of all is Tim Curry, his velvety and sophisticated voice over is one of the main assets for Lucifer working so well as a character, and Curry is simply superb in a role that was tailor-made for him.
All in all, great fun essentially. 9/10 Bethany Cox
