Hell and Back (2015)

Tiresome and unpleasant, this R-rated animated comedy has a gorgeous visual look and engaging voice work from an all-star cast, but the script is legitimately execrable. The jokes are lame and the plot is boring, and even at a scant eighty six minutes it feels interminable. As a matter of fact, I had to watch it in three separate sittings because I was bored and annoyed every time I watched it. Its absolutely stunning animation is undercut by an obnoxious tone that mistakes random snark and vulgarity with cleverness. There’s no reason to watch this.
