Storyline

Two men are introduced to the popular parlor game, charades. They are solely given the task of acting out the clues. The two men take decidedly different approaches to the game, with differing results. The lack of success for one is just too much for him to handle. Written by Huggo

A forgotten Oscar winner.
15 September 1998 | by (Arizona, USA) – See all my reviews

This charming short movie won a well deserved Oscar. In it a frustrated man tries unsuccessfully to describe in charades various movie titles. The plot is simple but the animation is hilarious.
