When I watched a Jacques Tati movie for the first time, I didn't really know what I was at. Now I saw several of them I started to like those nicely done comedys in which spoken words are of no importance.
This animation-movie is based on one of his scripts that he never turned into a movie himself (he died 1982) and it is gorgeous to look at. They really managed to hit his style right on spot, especially the movements of the main character (supposed to be Tati himself) fit perfectly. It's not meant for kids though, they wouldn't understand it.
Dead Men don't wear Plaid (5/10):
Steve Martin stars in this Film Noir parody. Also starring lots of famous actors (e.g. H.Bogart, I.Bergman, V.Price etc) which have been added by taking scenes from several old movies and combining them with material feat. Steve Martin to create the illusion of interaction (in a pretty clumsy way).
Sadly most of the jokes aren't very funny (a few ones are awesome though).
