REVIEW: "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show"

Recommended Posts

I actually remember this quit a bit and was really excited when they announced the movie back then and really enjoyed it myself with this whole series being my all time favorite Cartoon Network show, I have to say my favorite part is at the end of the movie where Double D breaks the fourth wall saying all the seasons and specials they had that it had to end this way, loved it.

Nicely done, I really enjoyed this movie too. It felt like the perfect tying up of every loose end the series had...well, apart from poor Johnny turning into a villain at the end, but it wouldn't be a EEnE movie without a closing gag I guess. It's nice to see a good cartoon actually end on a high note.

I really love your analysis on the movie. It certainly gave me chills. I felt like I was reading a creepypasta! I really appreciate the hard work you put into this review, and I enjoyed the review a lot. It really makes me want to watch the entire series again and watch the movie. (I didn't watch the movie, only the show.) Just the movie being titled 'Big Picture Movie' tells a lot on its own.

Something interesting too, is the creator of Ed Edd and Eddy (who I can't remember his name) created two somewhat popular cartoons in the past that were very dark. One was titled The Brother's Grunt which aired on MTV a long time ago around in the 1990's (the cartoon is very dark and rather... Disturbing, creepy, disgusting and outright weird) while he also made another cartoon short about a Butcher (forgot what it was called as well, but it was basically a rather gory cartoon where a Butcher accidentally cuts off his own limbs). It's really interesting to think about this, as it definitely makes you wonder if these dark themes are from the creator's past works.

Oh-ho, no it's not... I've only seen snippets of Brothers Grunt and that Lupo The Butcher short, but Ed Edd N Eddy might as well be Citizen Kane next to those pieces.

 

Danny Antonucci (that's the creator) wouldn't have needed to take inspiration from his past work anyway. BG and LTB was all style and no substance, nothing but a parade of disgusting visuals to get a reaction. I mentioned that EEnE was always mostly mean-spirited, and that is true, but it doesn't just shove violence or figurative vomit on a screen for the sake of it. The jokes, the slapstick, and everything else has a science to it.

 

The fact that this film went down a darker path is just a testament of its progression. It's the smart thing to do for a cartoon like this, and I'm sure Antonucci was well aware of that.
