The film Hair High is a 78 minute animated feature starring the voices of Dermot Mulroney, Sarah Silverman and others. It contains violence, vulgarity, sex, gore, nudity, profanity.
Critics have complained that the Plympton film is too long and would be better if it had been cut to a shorter feature length. Plymptoons are Bill Plympton's deliberately crude and vulgar signature animated films. Hair High is no exception although longer than most of the previous Plymptoons.
"Hair High" is about popular high school students who become involved in a love triangle. Sarah Silverman and Dermot Mulroney voice the characters of Cherri and Rod, popular high school students who become involved in a love triangle — one that ends badly for at least two of the teens.
Plympton uses the high school setting to send up period musicals, in particular "Grease," and the '60s "Beach Party" comedies that starred Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon.
The famous animator also indulges in crude, infantile spoofs of horror movies and sports dramas — the latter, with a lengthy crescendo featuring a game — and an orgy of sorts (which was seen in shorter form in the most recent "Spike & Mike" compilation).
The clear intention of the film is to outrage viewers. Many critics believe he''s done this sort of thing before, and better. Afterall he's been doing films for 30 years.
