Don’t Look Now Review
Don’t Look Now is a 1936 animated short film from the Merry Melodies series. It is a solid flick.
So here Satan wants to ruin Valentine’s Day for romantic couples and it is up to Cupid to stop him. Now this is a solid premise. Familiar, but solid and it always leads to entertaining stories. This one is very well animated, but weakly scored. I liked the character designs of these two as they looked really good.
Now the film is fun, but not as fun as it should have been given the amusing premise. The voice acting is actually pretty good and there are some nice gags here, but not nearly enough and the film is ultimately forgettable which is a shame as it had all of the good ingredients to make it a classic.
Don’t Look Now has fun characters and premise, but an unfortunately weaker execution.
