Just don't eat each other!
14 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

A quick tour on the kissing process, that holds still by such classics as the French Kiss and others. We see a couple who are performing the kisses the narrator mentions, as we find out the dangers of several sorts of kissing. Like eating each other, or cutting each others heads off. You know, stuff like that.

Pretty funny Bill Plympton short, although it takes some time to really get started and the narrator voice is perfect for putting you asleep. Couldn't he find someone else to do the job? But the animations are really good and the idea is pretty funny. A fun one to watch when you got a couple of minutes of spare time.

6/10.
