Goodbye Kitty
7 November 2003 | by (Deerfield, MA) – See all my reviews

I was very curious about Tamala prior to viewing. I was amused at the animation, which was often clever and espoused a simplistic style not seen in some time. The look of the world was at once both desperate and cartoony. However, this film gave me little beyond eye candy.

The plot was sketchy (animation puns aside), the dialogue was annoyingly simple (though I did see it in English), and there was no real message or purpose. When the film finally ended, all I could say was "Wow, I guess it's over."

More annoying was that the creators tried desperately to create a cult-pop icon. Half the time I felt like Tamala was doing weird things just because weird things are cool and hip with young kids these days. I'm 25, and I found it neither cool nor hip. It was just annoying. Also, Colonel Sanders with a cleaver in his head left a little something to be desired.

If this was supposed to be Hello Kitty for the next generation, I think someone needs to change the litterbox. Something stinks.
