In a world of kid-friendly CG animations, Hell and Back stands out as an R-rated, stop-motion endeavor. T.J. Miller and Nick Swardson lead the irreverent voice cast as Augie and Remy, who must journey into the underworld to rescue their buddy Curt (Rob Riggle).
Once there, they encounter all manner of colorful characters including a devious demon voiced by Mila Kunis, a sexy angel voiced by Susan Sarandon, and the Devil himself, voiced by Bob Odenkirk.
