I’m now a horny adult. COOL WORLD mixes cartoons with actual human actors a la WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? The difference being that this film has rough language, many sexual situations & dialogue and a lame-ass story. If it wasn’t for the latter, it might have been somewhat enjoyable. What’s more, the interaction between the cartoons and the actors looks awfully fake and truth be told Gabes Byrne and Brad Pitt don’t look too sharp when delivering some of the uninspired dialogue from the script. If that wasn’t enough, the character of Holli Would comes off looking more like Olive Oyl compared to the standard of cartoon sexiness set by Jessica Rabbit in the aforementioned “Rabbit”. Holli looks a bit sexier once she transforms in human form, but by that point, I wasn’t interested anymore. Neither were my pants.
To top it all off, the soundtrack is almost non-existent with a couple of forgettable rock tunes sprinkled around. I did however get a kick out of the complete and utter madness that was taking place in the Cool World sequences. I’m a huge fan of Bakshi’s animation style and there were some really wacky and occasionally disturbing doodles that were floating around in this place. I also bought into the relationship between human Brad Pitt and his love interest, a gorgeous and super sexy female cartoon. The last ten minutes are a particular gas, but unfortunately they’re the only ten minutes that were. Ah, if only I were young again…
