Way before it was cool for celebs to put their voice talents to animation, a whole bunch of them got together to make a film about a unicorn. ‘Sounds cool, right? Now stir it up with some ugly animation, some atrocious singing, lots of melancholy and numerous references to a popular energy drink and you get ‘The Last Unicorn’ from 1982, a weird, mysterious beast all of its own. The whole gang of Ant, Rich, Abi and Jamie have rolled out for this one, but maybe only some can perceive the little magic this movie possesses. There are so many oddities this time around, but pay special attention to: a drugged-up singing butterfly, an alcoholic skeleton, an enigmatic pirate cat and the movie’s obsession with attaching large breasts to things that you really shouldn’t.
