Quirky, Quiet, Kind of Interesting, A Little Slow
30 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

(Saw this movie in flight on American Airlines between Tokyo and Dallas)

Generally a fun, and sort of quirky movie. The movie is clearly intended to be a bit surreal with actual cartoons in some places and cartoonish physical sets in others.

This movie is "family friendly" in that there is no nudity or profanity. There are some quirky erotic and human reproductive references but they are too subtle to register with small children.

Generally kind of a fun movie. Very nice cooking photography. Reasonably interesting story. Pace is a little slow in some places... I found myself looking around to see what was on the screens of other passengers.
