Robert Zemeckis' method of animating actors is the perfect way to tell this story. It helps us see what Mark Hogancamp is thinking and feeling, and reveals the tragedy that he went through. Sweet and heartfelt.
Most of the film is about a tour of live performances in Europe. The comedy portrayal is right on the money. The realistic relationships are what make this sweet film. Watch the deleted scenes for extra laughs.
I enjoyed this look at the history of game shows, including clips from many different shows in different time periods. Light-hearted with some little know behind the scenes factoids that kept me interested.
