Avoid like the plague
This film is horrible beyond words. I made the mistake of seeing it in theaters, and merely remembering the experience is painful. To summarize - it is a lengthy jumble of bored-college-student pseudo-philosophical ramblings that are supposed to make the viewer seriously consider the meaning and reality of life. The animation is indeed noteworthy, but the dialogue is a tedious string of cliches that lack both insight and originality. If you want to get the effect of the movie but don't want to spend the money, I have a solution. Go to a coffee shop, preferably one close to a college campus. Get a simple but pleasant drink, and eavesdrop on the bright minds of tomorrow philosophizing and bs'ing all about the meaning of life, the transient nature of reality, and the human paradox. Sit, absorb, and scoff (optional) for however long the movie would have taken you, and then leave. Repeat if enjoyed.
