Quotes

Jim: Ya know, relationships are a lot like those little packets of condiments you get at fast-food restaurants. They're these little magical things that can last forever on a shelf, but once you open them up, they go bad really fast. I just don't understand condiments.

A Bad Experiment
30 May 2005 | by tedgSee all my reviews

I feel bad for Hertzfeldt. He has a great sense of humor, he's a gifted animator and he has some clever ideas. But he has yet to find a writing collaborator that can help him develop and project something as powerful as "Wallace and Gromit."

This is a simple skit, along the lines of a Fieffer cartoon. The animation is irrelevant except for the ten seconds when they turn on the TeeVee.

Otherwise, this is the absolute worst of his work, if you are looking around.

Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 3: You can find something better to do with this part of your life.
