“Here’s the Plan” (2017)

This quieter, softer, and gentler look at marriage life has a huge advantage compared to other animated films about marriage, in that because it has a 20-minute runtime, it can let a lot of what happens sink in for the audience. You really do get a sense of this relationship between this married couple and want them to work through their issues. The animation is kind of hit or miss, and while the animation is fine and stylized for the most part, there are times where it’s a bit wonky. Also, the vocal performances of the couple were a little hit or miss, sometimes hitting the perfect range of emotional or loving, but other times sounding like they’re about to fall asleep. Overall, this is a nice and unremarkable short, that warms your heart just enough that makes you glad you sat through it.
