Wow--look at the very divergent views about this film!
8 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is really weird. So far on IMDb, three people have reviewed this short cartoon--two giving it a score of 10 and one giving it a 1!! This really makes no sense at all and I think the truth lies somewhere in between (though a lot closer to 10).

Because the film was nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film for 2002, the score of 1 does seem silly. While they were right that this film didn't break as much new ground as some of the other nominees, it was extremely funny and that should count for something other than a 1! However, given that STUBBLE TROUBLE didn't win (the winner was the excellent Pixar film, FOR THE BIRDS), it seems likely that 10s are a bit too generous--especially since I don't even think STUBBLE TROUBLE was the second best film that made the cut (that would be STRANGE INVADERS).

So what you have is a cel shaded cartoon with a cute plot, excellent animation and only so-so music (bongos). It's funny, cute and worth a look--but a 10? Not quite.
