What a picture
I’ve seen this probably 20 times now and it never fails to make me crease! It’s not the best written comedy, but the cast really uses that to their advantage. They turn in some of the funniest, quirkiest performances - Andy Dick as the optometrist who can’t see worth a damn basically has me pissing myself with each watch. I’m surprised Costco allowed this to be made in one of their stores.
Absolutely beautifully animated movie with an equally as beautiful message. Please don’t let the title fool you. It’s not a weird movie about cannibalism or anything like that. It’s about friendship, experiencing life to the fullest as if each day is your last and the undeniable fact that you cannot live life alone. You do need people and believe it or not, they need you too. I cried my eyes out. A bigger gut punch than The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Your Name.
“All the choices I made were just to meet you. Thank you.”
Must not have paid close attention to the synopsis because what I thought would be a feel good story about a teacher that has to breakthrough to some troubled youths and they go on a camping trip (based on the poster art) was actually something much creepier and darker. This is definitely a film that was a couple of years ahead of its time in the way that it is portraying the younger generation: hostile, withdrawn and militant to mask…
