Di­rected by Char­lie Kauf­man, Duke John­son. Voices of David Thewlis, Jennifer Ja­son Leigh,

Tom Noo­nan In this sin­gu­lar stop­mo­tion an­i­ma­tion, Thewlis voices a self-help guru who has a li­ai­son with a fan (Ja­son Leigh) when stay­ing in a bland ho­tel. His beaten drone makes a free night in a ho­tel seem like one of Dante’s in­ner cir­cles, and her sad, reedy ren­di­tion of Girls Just Wanna

Have Fun is a mu­si­cal flip-flop to rank along­side The Simp­sons’ re­work­ing of At Sev­en­teen. Very clever. Very awk­ward. But just a lit­tle too ni­hilis­tic? 15A cert, Light House, Dublin, 89 min
