A whimsical look into adultery.
That is the first impression of Bill Plymton’s animated feature, Cheatin’. The quasi-French animation style story, tells of a desirable Ella and her fateful bumper car accident that introduces her to the hunky Jake, and the love affair and eventual marriage that follows.
When I was a kid I loved to read. I still do. Sometimes, it’s nice just to sit, look, and immerse oneself in a story through art, and what picture book is more legendary than Where’s Waldo? Sorry, fellow Egypt enthusiasts, the Book of the Dead doesn’t count; hieroglyphs are representations of sounds and not just pretty little pictures. Back in the 80s and early 90s, Waldo was a worldwide phenomenon. The books were very popular and started a brand of popular t-shirts and clothing accessories. Waldo even had a TV show. So where the hell IS Waldo? I haven’t seen much of him lately.
