We saw this at CINECON, and thank God for film festivals!, 23 February 2004
Author: larry41onEbay from Culpeper, VA

We saw this at CINECON, and thank God for film festivals! I wanted to blow it off because of the silly title but watched it on a friend's recommendation. IT IS HILARIOUS! I had never seen Max Davidson before and I quickly became a big fan and I have now searched out many more of his shorts and been delighted every time. I have just heard it will play this year (2004) at CINEVENT in Columbus, catch it if you can!
