This movie is not politically correct ... don't watch it, if you're not down with that. Having said that and seeing that I only gave it 4 stars, one could be excused to say, that I like my movies PC. But that couldn't be further away from the truth, than saying that I like Death Metal (which I don't).
But back to this animated movie, which tackles and tries to punch the porn industry. It's brave in doing so, and it's not shy on getting down and dirty. But that is, where it lost me. Throwing children into the mix is something I despise very much. This is definitely not a movie for children! And there shouldn't be any in it, too (imo).
Provocative or not, it just felt wrong to me. The issues that are named here, are serious, but there surely is a better approach to them than this movie.
