When ex-con cartoonist Jack Deebs (Gabriel Byrne) was behind bars he
found escape by creating "Cool World," a cartoon series featuring a
voluptuous vixen named Holli Would.
But the ‘toonsmith becomes a
prisoner of his own fantasies when Holli pulls jack into Cool World
with a scheme to seduce him and bring herself to life. A hard-boiled
detective (Brad Pitt)–the only other human in Cool World–cautions Jack
with the law: ‘Noids (humans) don’t have sex with doodles (cartoons).
flesh proves weaker than ink, however, as Holli takes human form (Kim
Basinger) in Las Vegas, staring in a trans-universal chase that
threatens the destruction of both worlds.
With a splashy mix of animation and live-action sequences, "Cool World" delivers the hottest action around.
