The Tune (1992)

Overextended animated feature about a dude looking for a hit song, which naturally leads to many musical interludes. Like any Bill Plympton work, this has its moments; unfortunately, most of the best moments here are replays from earlier short films (specifically Push Comes to Shove and The Wiseman). That's exactly what it feels like, actually: a bunch of shorts strung together with a really lame framing device. Pacing sucks too. At least it's only 70 minutes, and Plympton's low-tech, high-imagination drawing style always strikes me as charming.

Grade: C
