And you thought South Park was bad..
The District is one of the most interesting, annoying, filthy and funniest animated movies I've seen in a long while. This film, a twisting of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, (and we're talking a severe twisting) combines it with a story about um, global domination of the oil supplies in their neighborhood. There's also music, sex, and really bad behavior. So as you can tell, this is not a kid's movie. Far from it. The animators seriously have warped personalities to have come up with this. Although the story is a bit shaky and wraps up rather goofily, The story almost takes a back seat with all the strange animation, singing, and oh yes, guest appearances (hello George Bush!) going on. Highly highly original, this is well worth a look.
