An interesting art style isn't enough to make this one worth seeking
This is one of the animated shorts from THE ANIMATION SHOW: VOLUME 2. Most of the shorts in this DVD collection are rather poor because very few are funny and the emphasis is much more or art than entertainment in this second installment. For better films overall, see VOLUME 1.
This film is actually one of the better ones from the collection, but it still didn't do much for me. The story is about some ladies whose job it is to travel to grocery stores giving out free samples. In addition to describing their job, they talk about what they dislike about it as well. Considering that their job only entails this sort of repetitive work, the narration and plot was incredibly dull. Fortunately, the animation style, while not particularly good (it was VERY hard on the eyes), it was at least different--unusual enough to merit it being seen if you are an animation junkie. However, as I said, it is hard on the eyes, as none of the animated characters or backgrounds stay still--they all bob up and down independently of each other and are enough to make you seasick!!
