Guys Don't Make Passes at Girls Who Wear Glasses
30 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"So You Think You Need Glasses" is a "humorous" short that doubles as an informational film about vision problems and the different things people can do to correct them. Wonder what an astigmatism is, and how one impacts your vision? Or how nearsightedness differs from farsightedness and how each will affect your card game? Well, this film will tell you.

I put "humourous" in quotation marks because the film thinks it's funnier than it is.

What struck me most about it was how odd looking all of the women in it are.
