But wait , that's not all . There's a clip:

"Stunning 3D Animation" . Oh, I'm detecting stunned all right ...

Why do I imagine this being produced at some evil sweatshop/concentration camp ? (no free cereal , but you can buy it from the company store at the front of the compound, next to the barbed wire fence.)

The anti-Pixar.

Is that for real? If so, I didn't realize you could get away with something like that.

Any time Disney puts a movie out in theaters you will find an extremely cheap knockoff showing up right away for purchase on home video. It's so parents can buy something for kids who don't know they have to wait a couple months for the real thing to come out on DVD and don't know that the knockoff is a knockoff.

I will now never be amazed at how low the human mind will bend to produce cheap stuff.

Cheap boiler room CG movie knock offs?

Gad! I have visions of poor village women sitting in front of computers with no air conditioning with straw on the floors and one of those guys you see on ships ( I forgot the name ) who would beat a drum to keep the oarsman in rhythm.

Aliens had to crash at Roswell so their technology could be back engineered so that cheap CG movies could be made.

We can sink no lower. The bottom of the abyss has been reached and we're using jackhammers to see if we can get an extra few feet out of it.

Oddly enough, this just turned up on P2P. It is being downloaded, or has already been downloaded, by at least 150 users who specifically sought it. The online copies don't appear to be in English, but that probably doesn't matter in the case of TOING.

Here's the previous film by these guys:

There will always be the "coat tail riders".
So much for creativity and originality.

Old folks are the ones that may not know the difference. When they hear that their grandkids want the "rat cooking movie", they go to Wal-Mart and find this crap on the shelves. And they buy it!

ewwww.
